Sunday's Oscars wrapped up another fun award season for Hollywood's biggest stars. Over the past two months, our favorite celebrities from the big and small screens hit the red carpet and shared their favorite moments with us through social media. We've seen celebs like Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Justin Timberlake, and Jennifer Lawrence posing for photos, Miranda Kerr and Hailee Steinfeld hanging out, and even sweet PDA moments from Hugh Jackman, Ian Somerhalder, and Nina Dobrev. There are lots of cute pictures from the People's Choice Awards to last weekend's Oscars to pour over, so click through now!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 isn't just the final installment of a film franchise, it's the ending of an era. The eighth movie in the series takes us to the wizarding world for one more look at Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) as they square off against Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) for the last time. The movie is also peppered with the familiar faces we've come to know and love throughout the series, but ultimately, this film belongs to Harry as he comes to terms with the death and destruction of his peers as well as his own mortality. No film in the series has had higher stakes, more action, or quite this much anguish.
As the threesome arrives at their former school, Neville Longbottom informs Harry, Ron, and Hermione that "Hogwarts has changed." It doesn't take a wizard to see what he means: the once warmly lit castle is now shrouded in gray, the laughter of the students has been replaced with fear, and the once-bubbly professors are now panic-stricken and unsmiling. It's only fitting that Hogwarts, where Harry's wizarding life began, is also where it all ends, and so begins the much-anticipated battle between good and evil that comprises the majority of the movie.

In what is sure to be a bittersweet moment for Harry Potter fans, the final film in the series hits theaters today. Before you watch Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint embark on their final adventure, journey back to their first year at Hogwarts when they had high-pitched voices, baby faces, and Watson was still rocking Hermione's trademark bushy mane. Watch as Harry discovers he's a wizard, the trio learns how to fly, and Dumbledore (originally played by Richard Harris) warns them about the Forbidden Forest for the first time in the 2001 trailer for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone!
Emma Watson addressed the partying habits of her Harry Potter pals yesterday while on The Late Show with David Letterman. When asked about her own drinking routines, the proper English actress adorably dodged the question for a while until finally admitting to having gotten drunk on one occasion. The actress first assured everyone that she was of legal age and then proudly stood up and took a bow — check it out below!
Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe, and Emma Watson stuck together on the red carpet at the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in NYC this afternoon. Emma got gorgeous in a strapless Bottega Veneta dress, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, and dramatic eye makeup, while Rupert and Daniel both looked dapper in suits and ties. The trio made their first appearance for the movie at last week's London premiere and followed up the excitement with a star-studded Harry Potter afterparty. The costars then made the trip to the East Coast for the film's press junket, and their leading lady continued press when Emma Watson stopped by The Late Show in a sexy Balmain mini before arriving at this evening's main event. We were on the red carpet to chat with Emma, Daniel, and Rupert on our live Harry Potter red-carpet feed, which you can watch back through now! Plus, watch highlights of all the action on PopSugar Rush. There was plenty of energy at the Lincoln Center with stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and her son James Wilkie stepping out to see the movie. Whoopi Goldberg also made her way down the carpet and talked about being a huge fan of the series as did Seth Green and his wife and NY Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and J.K. Rowling Bid Farewell to Harry Potter With Their London Fans
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and the extended cast of Harry Potter came together in London's Trafalgar Square today to premiere the final installment of the saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Emma arrived in a beautiful floor-length Oscar de la Renta gown and raced over to greet fans and sign autographs before taking her place on the red carpet. Her best friends in the film, Rupert and Daniel, followed closely behind, also thanking fans and posing for pictures. The principle cast took the stage with J.K. Rowling and spoke to the audience of millions watching across the globe. Daniel first thanked fans and the cast and went on to say, "This isn't the end as fans will carry this story with them through the rest of their lives."
Emma then took to the podium and professed her love for her costars and especially Rupert and Daniel, saying, "Dan didn't get lucky, you were and are the perfect Harry and will be forever" and thanked "Rupert for making me laugh, I'll miss you so much," then broke down into tears before thanking J.K. for playing such a "great role model" in her life. Rupert was the final of the trio to take the mic, saying a simple "I love you" to the fans and crew and thanking J.K for everything she's done "for ginger people." It was a day full of mixed emotions for all of those involved with the franchise, and J.K. even joked, "I should write another one!" before wrapping up the event with her final words, saying, "Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home."
Summer is just a few weeks away, which means we're inching our way closer to one of the biggest movie events of the season: the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2! We've been looking forward to it for what feels like ages, and now there's some extra eye candy to go along with the trailer for the final Harry Potter installment. Warner Bros. has released new posters for the film, featuring Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Hermione (Emma Watson). I personally prefer the first poster for the movie, which featured Harry coming face-to-face with Lord Voldemort. Then again, maybe I'm just sore about the fact that these one-sheets are reminding me that "it all ends," and I'm not quite ready to let go. What do you think of the new posters?
When Harry Potter ends this Summer, Daniel Radcliffe may have his fallback career already worked out. On last night's episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, guest Radcliffe told Jimmy about his desire to try stand-up, so Jimmy gave him a chance right then and there. Watch "Danny Radcliffe" (as Jimmy has anointed him) as he makes his debut as a comedian — he's got one pretty good joke, even though he admits that it's a stolen one.
He stars in the Gothic horror film The Woman in Black as a lawyer who finds himself haunted when he travels to a small village to organize the affairs of a deceased client. The short teaser is our first look at the movie, and though it's free of dialogue, it's pretty creepy. Watch as Radcliffe receives a chill as he encounters some mysterious, ghostly images when you read more
It's tough containing my excitement for the final Harry Potter film, The Deathly Hallows Part II (did you see the new poster yet?), but I'm still a big fan of Part I. If you are too, you've got to watch the following deleted scene that was just unearthed — it's a somber and fairly emotional clip between Harry and Aunt Petunia, just before she and the Dursleys are forced to vacate their lifelong home. Watch!
