If you were unable to join us today for the 2013 MuggleNet Harry Potter Oscar Announcement Ceremony, you can now watch it at your leisure.We certainly had a great time putting these awards together and hope everyone who watched it enjoyed it too.
The Academy Awards overlooked the most successful franchise in the history of the cinema, as the Harry Potter franchise was nominated for several awards over the years but never actually won. So we decided to take matters into our own hands and have Harry Potter win EVERY award.
