According to a new article, Deathly Hallows - Part 2 may have just taken one step closer to being nominated for Best Picture.
Earlier today the National Board of Review named the final installment in the Potter film series one of the Top 10 films of 2011. The National Board of Review is often looked at as a prelude to the Oscars.
"The critics of the National Board of Review just sent the Oscars a message: 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' was a good film; it's OK to honor it."
Having received nine prior Oscar nominations, the Harry Potter franchise has yet to win the coveted golden statue in any category.
