The 2012 Golden Globe nominations have been released and there are a slew of notable snubs, all tying to the final chapter of the "Harry Potter" saga. The "Harry Potter" series has been largely ignored at the Golden Globes. Here is a look at some of the "Harry Potter" actors that should have been recognized for their work in the epic "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2"
Daniel Radcliffe portrayed Harry Potter in all eight Potter films, and he exhibited his best performance to date in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2." His portrayal of Harry was moving, endearing and spot-on. The "Woman in Black" star should have been in the running for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama.
Emma Watson does not get the credit she deserves for her acting ability. The young actress' acting prowess has improved significantly through the years, and she shined in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" as she reprised her role of Hermione Granger. She had fans in stitches when she transformed into Bellatrix Lestrange in the Gringott's scene. The Chanel model should have been in the running for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama.
Say what you will about Professor Snape, but the man who portrays him is nothing short of amazing. Alan Rickman has portrayed the dark and mysterious Potions master, Severus Snape in all eight Potter films. The "Dogma" star's performance in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" is multi-faceted: dark, emotional and above all, powerful. Alan Rickman should have been in the running for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama.
