The film hailed as “monumental cinema” and a “genuinely terrifying spectacle” (in a good way) went completely unnoticed at this year’s Academy Awards.
Before the awards on Sunday night, the Harry potter community had some high hopes on bringing home a golden statue, but they left the award ceremony empty-handed.
