Like many other Harry Potter fans who tuned in to the 2011 Oscars, I certainly did not expect to see Ron and Hermione (my favorite Harry Potter couple) parodied on television this evening. Watch this video of the autotuned parody of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Toy Story 3, The Social Network, and Twilight. 🙂

Visit my Tumblr blog at http://phoenixweasley.tumblr.com/  and follow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/#!/DeniseRoper for a peek at Harry Potter fandom’s reaction to this. I think all of the Ron/Hermione fans just died of happiness. 😉

 UPDATE: MTV News just blogged about this:

What followed was an unexpectedly silly musical tribute that began with the instant classic “Tiny Ball of Light,” credited to Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.” Taking a pivotal scene in the woods where the longtime pals reunite, Ron and Hermione are drawn into a finger-snapping R&B slow jam with a thumping beat and over-the-top Auto-Tune effects that would make T-Pain proud.

“This ball of light, this tiny ball of light floated through my chest, floated through me right here,” Weasley stutter-sings as an incredulous Granger croons, “What exactly did it say, may I ask?” The sure-to-be-viral classic artfully reimagined the dialogue from the film and was right out of the “Saturday Night Live” school of digital-short musical parodies.

I just posted this on Tumblr and thought I would share it with those of you who follow this blog also. It’s dazzleme7’s fan video of  Harry Potter stars Rupert Grint and Emma Watson together over the years.

She chose a great song for them and did a wonderful job of editing these clips together, didn’t she?

Here’s another photo of Rupert, Emma, and J. K. Rowling at the BAFTAs. Enjoy!

Here’s a video of a BAFTA-related interview with J. K. Rowling, David Heyman, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson. Enjoy!

This quote from snitchseeker.com made me laugh:  “When asked if she ever pictured the actors while writing her books, Jo Rowling joked that she could imagine Rupert while she put Ron Weasley in embarrassing situations.” Listen for that part in the video. 🙂

I found this on Tumblr. So hilarious!

I also loved J. K. Rowling’s description of Emma’s reaction to the idea of kissing Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe: Emma laughed so much that she rolled off of the sofa! 🙂

Here’s great another video of J. K. Rowling discussing that same topic. 😉

Aren’t these videos great? Rowling is so awesome! 🙂

Here’s Rupert’s red carpet interview at the BAFTAs.  Of course, he talks about the Ron/Hermione kiss! 🙂

Here’s a video of author J. K. Rowling, producers David Heyman and David Barron, directors Alfonso Cuaron, Mike Newell, and David Yates, and actors Rupert Grint and Emma Watson on stage at the BAFTAs to receive the “Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema” Award for the Harry Potter series.

Stephen Fry, the voice of the British Harry Potter audiobooks, gave the films’ creators a wonderful introduction. I enjoyed all of the comments from the various cast members in the video feature that was shown before the award was presented, as well as Heyman’s and Rowling’s acceptance speeches. I thought that the funniest part of the presentation was when Jo Rowling pulled Rupert Grint closer so that he would be on camera during David Heyman’s speech. 🙂

Here are some photos from the 2011 BAFTAs:

Congratulations to the J. K. Rowling and the Harry Potter cast and crew. I’m so glad that they received the recognition that they deserve! 🙂

EDIT: Here’s a link to a video of J. K. Rowling talking to the BBC News about what new writing projects she’s working on now! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/12444611 She has seven projects going at the moment! I wonder if any of them are Harry Potter-related…

This post needs no explanation. 😉
