The eighth and final film in the series, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,' only received three nominations in the technical categories at the 84th Annual Academy Awards this year - something Daniel Radcliffe isn't too happy about.

"I don't think the Oscars like commercial films, or kids' films, unless they're directed by Martin Scorsese," the star said.

"I was watching 'Hugo' the other day and going, 'Why is this nominated and we're not?' I was slightly miffed."

Says Radcliffe: "There's a certain amount of snobbery. It's kind of disheartening. I never thought I'd care. But it would've been nice to have some recognition, just for the hours put in."

While 'Harry Potter' is the highest grossing film franchise of all time, none of the films have actually won an Academy Award, despite six out of the eight films being nominated for technical Oscars such as Best Costume Design, Best Original Score and Best Visual Effects.

So, is this a case of sour grapes for Daniel Radcliffe, or is he legitimate in feeling miffed?
