I have always loved the Harry Potter series, which means I was elated when I discovered it was being given an achievement award. As the movie series nears its end, The British Academy of Film and Television Arts, a.k.a. BAFTA, will finally get it’s chance to award not an individual movie, but the series as a whole. Harry Potter is being honored with the award for Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema. The series has had a total of 28 BAFTA nominations as well as seven Oscar nominations. This award will not be accepted by any of the actors we have known and loved yet the people who created this vision for us, J.K. Rowling, the author, and David Heyman, the producer. Props goes to them as the first six movies have already grossed 5.4 billion world wide, the most of any film franchise of all time, not even including the seventh and eighth films.
