Deathly Hallows Part 1 5/1 To Win An Oscar
The Harry Potter series is coming to an end but despite its massive popularity, the series has never won an Oscar.
With the premiere of The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 on 11th November, bookmakers William Hill are offering 5/1 that the first part of the final Potter instalment manages to bag Harry's first Oscar.
The previous Potter Oscar nomination record is three (for Prisoner Of Azkaban) and William Hill are offering 8/1 that the new movie gets four or more nominations. For Harry, Ron or Hermione (aka Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint or Emma Watson)to win an Academy Award for best actor/actress or best supporting actor/actress is priced at 20/1.
Harry Potter is the highest ever grossing film franchise and has served the British film industry well.
Hills are offering 6/4 that The Deathly Hallows becomes the highest grossing film of the year, overtaking the £73,405,113 that was taken by Toy Story 3 in the summer.
The Harry Potter Franchise has almost come to an end but Potter fans need not fret as Hills are offering 20/1 that an eighth Harry book is released by JK Rowling before the Olympics start and 1/2 that she pens a new series featuring Harry's son Albus before the end of 2015.
"The odds suggest we may not have heard the last from Harry but surely it is time for the Academy to recognise what has become the biggest franchise in history," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
8/1: The Deathly Hallows Part 1 gets four or more Oscar nominations
6/4: The Deathly Hallows Part 1 takes more than £73,405,113 (Toy Story 3) to become the highest grossing film of the year (IMDB will be used to verify the figures)
20/1: JK Rowling releases an eighth Harry Potter Novel
1/2: JK Rowling releases a series about Harry's son Albus
20/1: Any of the three major actors to win best actor/actress or supporting actor/actress
