The Oscars have always been a very mixed bag. I disliked Braveheart and while I enjoyed Titanic (or at least the second half of it ) I didn't think it deserved however many Oscars it got. The screenplay was AWFUL! Kate Winslet (and the CGI ship!) were the best things in that film.

Exactly. (Sean Astin was very peeved about that, but never mind. )

And the ensemble cast for both LotR and the Potter franchise were (and are) excellent.

I don't either.

And I really don't think it matters at all. I enjoy the HP films for what they are: wonderfully enjoyable entertainment.

I do think the films could have been better had the film-makers taken a darker, bolder, more visionary approach to adapting Rowling's stories, and translated the more subversive elements in her lively imagination onto the screen.
