Ron and Hermione Make BBC Radio One Top Movie Couples List


Mar 19, 2009

Posted by EdwardTLC

Update: Thanks to the many readers who let us know that an actual list of Top Five Movie Couples released on BBC Radio One by host James King making mention of Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) should read as follows:

5. Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney in “Out of Sight”
4. Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in “Harry Potter”
3. Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in “Pretty Woman”
2. Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford in “Star Wars”
1. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in “Mr and Mrs Smith”

An earlier list was apparently “a joke list” as seen below.

5. Lady and the Tramp
4. Harry and Lloyd (Dumb & Dumber)
3. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
2. Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger
1. Xena Warrior Princess and Gabrielle

Thanks to Mhaey, Ivana at ICM, the BBC, and scores of others for mailing!

I can't wait to see Half-Blood Prince.....Avatar ImageCrown Victoria says: WOOT WOOT! yES! Finally some recognition for like the most amazing couple ever. Their chemistry was really obvious in last few films especially in POA and GOF. Cant wait for HBP them they will be number one!Avatar ImageCrown Victoria says: (anyone who still thinks its Hermione/Harry is crazy) (and i mean like completely crazy)Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: Xena and Gabrielle? Like seriously? I never thought they were a couple. After all those years they still insist... Lol, anyway good for Ron and Hermione they beat Angelina. Yaay!Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: Yeah!!! They should be #1 though!!!Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: Best couple EVER!!!Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: I totally agree with the fact that they should make it on the list! But they should be number one :P They are my faourite couple ever! And yea it's definatly not Harry / Hermione!Avatar ImageKalin says: My favourite couple! Sizzling chemistry, even more so in the books!Avatar Imagedavid1228 says: Score for R/H shippers everywhere!! :)Avatar Imagestampsgal says: This is a weird list. Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie amongst fictional couples.Avatar ImageFonty says: Well, technically, Ron & Hermione in the movies so far (1,2,3,4,5) have not been "a couple". :-) But there are still three movies left (6,7,8). ;-)Avatar Imageavrenim says: awesome! and they haven't even kissed yet in the movies. r/hr ftw!Avatar Imagefan.numero1 says: yay,, talk about the best couple everr!Avatar ImageSynne-M says: So cool!Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: Yay Ron and Hermione!!!Avatar ImageCourtney Quirke says: odd list.Avatar ImageJesicurz93 says: WHOOO YAY!!! <333 R/HR FOREVER!Avatar ImageErinM says: Yay for our future Mr. and Mrs. Ron Weasley!Avatar Imagetaekwondochik44 says: And they haven't even kissed yet! lol. This is awesome!!!! Go R/Hr!!!! <3Avatar Imagesparklycupcake says: Woooo!! I'm just crazy, but i want Emma & Rupert to get together in real life..:/ That'd be so cute & squueeful! :D xAvatar ImageKalin says: The list above isn't actually the one that the movie critic is listing though. If you follow the 'has released'-link above and listen to the broadcast the first list is rattled off quickly and the 'real' list follows in more detail after (R/Hr are fourth on that one).Avatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: Xena? Dumb and Dumber?! ...I guess I missed that... But of course R/Hr have great chemistry. Yay for them :)Avatar ImageHannah18 says: The dopey Rupert Grint??? Poor Rupert he's not dopey! bless him! Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Cool! My name on there! Woot! :D Seriously. Ok. Well, I'm always happy to see Ron and Hermione make the list of best couples. Because they are! :DAvatar Imagesuh says: Yay = ) Avatar ImageMatea says: love them!!! they're on my list too! and this list-funny oneAvatar ImageChelsZ says: WhoooohooAvatar ImageMoose_Starr says: It's always good to see HP in the top 5. And so cool that a relationship that hasnt yet seen an onscreen kiss can make the Top 5 on chemistry alone ... *squee*Avatar Image10thweasley says: YEA!!! They do have amazing chemistry, I'm so happy!Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: lol i knew it! ^_^Avatar Imagepottercastfan says: Yay, that's awesome! Avatar Imagehp29 says: That awesome! That makes me happy :)Avatar Imagebealen says: Brilliant! Avatar ImageProfessorPotter says: Hmmm that is the craziest top 5 of anything I've seen! As Kalin points out though, the above list is not the actual top 5. The top 5 is a little more sensible that still includes Hermione/Ron. Its a great subject to ponder over though. I think my top 5 on first thoughts will be: 5. Jim Carey and Kate Winslet in Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 4. Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger in Shadowlands 5. Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson in Remains of the Day 2. Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher in um..forgot the name of the movie 1. Kermit the Frog & Miss Piggy , LOL. Oh alright, non puppet no.1: 1. Clark Gable and Scarlet O Hara in Gone with the Wind! Oh and a close runner up has to be Christopher Reeves and Margot Kidder in Superman. Oh and then there is Doris Day and Rock Hudson in Pillow Talk, Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant in Bringing up Baby. Humphrey Boggart and Katherine Hepburn in African Queen. Damn too many now! Ron Hermione and Harry are still a TRIO and not a couple in my mind so far in terms of the movies. Bookwise Ron/Hermione, no.1 all the way, baby!Avatar Imagescarletti1 says: Yah! Number two! Not bad! *dances* Yay Hermione/Ron!Avatar Imagesunshine123 says: yah for ron/hermione. they are great. they are good in the movies but even better in the books. a list like this makes me proud to support the good ship ron/hermioneAvatar Imageoj. says: I love it! Yeah, the ones in the post are just a jokey top 5 before the real one was read out. I was a bit worried when I heard the first bit of the show as I thought maybe R/Hr might not be in the real list, but it's superb that they are in both!Avatar Imagefuchsiarascal says: Awesome, but I admit that I LOL'ed at Xena and Gabrielle. You want to talk about chemistry without an on-screen kiss? ;)Avatar ImageBradyboy says: Lol, they aren't even couples yet! Avatar Imageharrypotterfan5324 says: oh they so should have been number 1!!!!! and if HBP had come out already then harry and ginny would DEFINATLY be number one...there so cuteAvatar Imageharrypotterfan5324 says: oh and tonks and lupin would so be on there if DH was out because i mean come on!!! they are really cute together...poor teddy..oh well he has harry and ginnyAvatar ImageWizziby says: That's a completely bizarre bunchAvatar Imagefantasylover12001 says: Harry and Lloyd? Xena and Gabrielle? Since when did they actually become couples? I mean yeah, the chemistry was there for Xena but Dumb and Dumber? I must have totally missed that. Still, it's cool that they made the list. Even if the others are the last couples I would have thought of (where are Kate and Leo for Titanic/Revolutionary Road???).Avatar Imagejljkehoe says: Okay, I am way out of it, or maybe I was in college (not much TV watching) who is Xena? Great job by Emma and Rupert!Avatar Imagelinnie95 says: That is great !!! I think they make a great couple. CoolAvatar ImageLavendergirl says: Wow, this is so cool! Avatar Imagesometimesremus says: YAY! They are awesome. Hate to sound corny but they complete one another...Avatar ImageViettt says: awesome I hope in the half blood prince David Y. will put the part when Ron says "I love you" to HermioneAvatar ImageSlytherinGirl911 says: Lol, That's awesome that they're no. 2! But they'll aways be no.1 in my books (in the straight couples list, of course)Avatar ImageMadamPenna says: ZOMG RON ET HERMY!!! XD!!!!11111!!!!111!!!!!ONE!!!!!Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: Xena??? really?Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Hooray for the Ron and Hermione couple recognition! :)Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: that great!!Avatar Imagesteffieb12 says: Yeah! They're so cute!Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: Haha! Cool, number two!Avatar ImageCait_Weasley says: Fabulous! Way to go R/Hr! ~CaitAvatar ImageJaina47 says: That's sort of an odd list. It has tv characters, movie characters and a real life couple. Very odd criteria. It is cool to see two HP characters make the list though. :DAvatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: YEAAAH! I ♥ this ship. It's my fave. Avatar ImageKalin says: Lol! I was just about to listen to the program again, just to confirm that I wasn't mad... Yes, the list above is the one I heard! Either way, our favourite couple is there!Avatar ImageeiVega says: Woah...1st of all Xena is NOT a movie. (Unless we're counting the animated feature--I think not) and 2ndly They are NOT a couple!! They had other relations. There's was just a strong friendship. This list needs to clarify what it means by couple. Something romantic or just a dynamic duo? And as much as I was a HUGE Xena fan and even dressed as her for Halloween back in high school...I do not think it is deserving of the number one spot. Sheesh.Avatar Imagemorgona says: yay!Avatar ImageGobbledygook says: They are so cute together. I was doing air punches when Hermione threw herself at ron. So "un-Hermione-like" lol.Avatar Imagepenguin1124 says: that is wonderful super fantastic coolness remarkable...and blueAvatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I am just surprised that they landed in second. As far as I am concerned, they should be in first place.Avatar ImageMarianaSP says: yay!Avatar ImageJessabean says: it's certainly the buildup to a relationship ever.Avatar ImageJessabean says: i meant the longest buildup to a relationship ever.Avatar Imageafsha_j says: I wud b actually,celebrating if dey wer no.1..doesn' matter tho..dey will b no.1 in my list..lyk 4evr:-)Avatar Imagemuzic823 says: That's an ecclectic and well made list :)Avatar Imagefranlock says: Yeah! Go Ron and Hermione! Making the top couple lists...Avatar Imageiheartrw says: yay for R/Hr!!!! love themAvatar Imagekamidee says: Like anyone could doubt that - LOL XENA?! thats funny, its been ages since I last saw that show Avatar Imagequoddy says: Bless my eyes!Avatar ImageSidish_black6 says: Wow, really. . . . They haven't kiss yet. . :)Avatar ImageDragongirl says: How did they even pick up they were into each other from the movies?? *L*Avatar ImageKalin says: Well, not even Kloves was able to hide the sizzles (although I agree, he tried hard)Avatar ImageChrissyPuff says: That is the funniest list I have ever seen lol I would have never though of seeing Dumb and Dumber, HP and lady and the tramp all in one list. But anyways... I'm glad to see Ron and Hermione getting some recognition as an official couple! Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: R/H shippers... we ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!!?!?!?!?Avatar ImageAvelina_Went says: Wow, number two is pretty great! So cool they made the list:) Hopefully that's the kind of chemistry we'll see more of in HBP!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Awesome! Avatar Imageele0206 says: That's true, they have a wonderful chemistry!!!! Happy for that. Can't wait to see the kiss scene and all their scenes in DH!!Avatar ImageCellar Door says: Yay! Even Radio One supports the Good Ship! Woo-hoo!Avatar Imageharrypotterbookpurist says: I am so happy a couple from Harry Potter is on there and it feels like a big honor to us Harry Potter fans! I wish they were number one, but number two isn't bad at all.Avatar Imageharrypotterbookpurist says: I knew it was always going to be Hermione and Ron from the beginning of the books, because I always felt there was more underneath the surface and they had a mutual attraction towards eachother.Avatar ImageDanielaNC says: N° 2, that's great! They'll always be N° 1 on my list, though.Avatar ImageiNazurah says: R/HR! OMG :D Avatar ImageAbiDumbledore says: Im glad they were recognised! =D I don't like the other couples on the list! Avatar ImageLunabelle7 says: Aww...that's great. I find that incredibly sweet...and why shouldm't they be there? Thery're at least as interesting as most other "movie couples" out there...probably more so than many. Avatar ImageLunabelle7 says: ...And number two! I just saw that. Impressive--that's even better. :)Avatar Imagelatecomer says: I wonder where the joke list came from?... :/Avatar Imagejenvomitvos says: why the heck is angelina and brad at number 1? Avatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: I dont see the chemistry that you are talking about Crown Victoria, but it is nice that they are getting some recognition.Avatar Imagehermionegirl7 says: People, on the real list they are number 4, not 2. But it's still really awesome! Avatar ImageIndigoMisfit says: Yay! I love Hermione and Ron as a couple! Is it weird that they remind me of my parents?Avatar ImageChantyBabez says: Anything related is top of my list no matter what the subject im very interested :D xAvatar ImageMary11_hplvr4l says: ha I can't believe we fell for the first one...I mean, Lady & the Tramp? they are cartoon Dogs & Xena? I mean she was great but that show hasn't been around for YEARS... lol well R/Hr forever ^_^Avatar Imagegaladriel12 says: The list with Xena and Gabrielle is a fake list people! :D (Atlhough it's a hilarious list, kind of unfortunate it isn't the real one :lol:) On the real list R/Hr is #4. Which is still very awesome. They are my OTP and therefore # 1 for me of course. However, I have the impression this list wasn't necessarily about the fictional couples' chemistry, but the actors' onscreen chemistry. And when it comes to that Rupert and Emma certainly, definitely deserve to be amont the top 5 too. :DAvatar Imagemiss_dkm says: They should be number 1! I love these two. When is Leaky going to post a Happy Birthday David Thewlis?Avatar ImageSonja43 says: I like the "fake" list: I mean Lady and the Tramp is..IMO..soooooo adorable...And Harry and Lloyd, I mean the stupiest couple ever to appear on screen, but yet they´re totally loveable...Don´t know much about Xena..soooo can´t really make an opinion on that...Hmmmmm Brangelina....IMO the most OVERRATED couple in showbizz... Avatar Imageeleranissa says: Congrats! Although I really disagree with the first choice on the list. Don't like them in that movie at all.Avatar ImageAlice Weasley says: Awww! My favorite ship ever!!!!Avatar Imagethe-charmed-baja says: Well I'm glad they didn't give Harry and Hermione one of the top movie couples' spots! *ducks as she gets rotten tomatoes thrown at her*Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: Alright!Avatar ImageHopelaa93 says: Great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagecaitlin.roth says: so are they saying that the actors or the characters are?Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: They are the best and should be #1 IMO.Avatar ImageNight Zephyr says: Some of the listed characters have never been book characters to my knowledge, so I would think they must be talking about screen chemistry. Rupert and Emma just *spark* with it! (For those who claim they haven't seen that chemistry yet, it's the -little- things, people: the constant glances and looks, how close they stand, how protective Ron is of Hermione, occasional little touches...and yes, there were loads of hints in the OotP movie). But it's the characters that JKR wrote who lend their own amazing chemistry to the actors. Avatar ImageSarabi says: Erm...I suppose? I don't think we've really seen a lot of Ron and Hermione on screen to designate them a "Top Movie Couple." But whatever, good for them anyways.Avatar Imagehannah abbot says: Radio one is the best radio station in the world!!! which show was this on? ron and hermione are one of my favourites :)Avatar ImageMahayana says: That's great!!Avatar Imageravenclaw1028 says: H/Hr for the world<3Avatar Imageravenclaw1028 says: GASP!

(soon!!!)Avatar ImageRAB66 says: awesomeAvatar Imagekatz10 says: Hermione/Harry is way better. and yes i am crazy. they have the chemistry we are looking for.Avatar Imagesupergirlinfrance says: That is fantastic *squee* Yay for hemoine/ronAvatar Imagesaffran says: cute! Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: Wow. I can't believe so many couples from the old days of movies are being overlooked. But maybe this includes only recent cinematic couples. P.S. I prefer JLo with Ralph Fiennes in Maid in Manhattan. Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: GO Ron and Herimone ! they are sooooo cute together! When i first started reading harry potter (i was 6 ah good times) i thouht Harry and Herimone would get together but than i read on and saw great R/Hr went together much better than Harry and Herimone would I am so glad Ron and Herimone end up happy!Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Yay ! Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: Cool, they made the list! Although they're not really together much in HBP, are they?Avatar Imagelizzie1514 says: Ron and Hermione r my fave couple in Harry Potter and the tension in the films between them is great. Seriously guys, if u think Harry/Hermione u r losing it big time! Read DH whatever version u have then u will realize u r wrong! (502 UK and 625 US)Avatar Imageginny_lola says: I DEMAND HARRY AND GINNY GET A PART!!!! Ok....I still LOVE Ron and Hermione but Harry and Ginny need credit TOO people!!!

Hermione ain't a 'chick' and she's definitely NOT posh (Emma is!). Otherwise, a well placed 4th spot behind Brangelina, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher and Richard Gere and Julia Roberts!Avatar Imagegeneliz says: awwwww:) yay! how appropriate i think i'd die if it was like, some twilight couple :S:|Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Cool. Can't wait to see them in HBP.Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: R/H forever! :DAvatar ImageTerra Firma says: They haven't even really been together in movies 1-5; there hasn't been any relationship beyond like quick looks and that hand thing in POA. Maybe this list includes predictions?Avatar Imagered_7849 says: Hurray... At last - someone has given recognition to how good Ron and Hermione look together. They are like awesome. " Such a lovely sweet-tempered Couple ".Avatar Imagekatz10 says: ..,.i totally agree with you terra firma.,they made the list because people know they will end up together in the books.,hmmp.,there's a lot more connection between harry and hermione.,for example when hermione was going down the stairs during yule ball.,there was this slow motion effect.,and when harry lost consciousness in the order of the phoenix.,it was hemione who saw him with the slow motion effect.,and the way they talk and hug and etc..,they just so look good together..,. ..,.Hermione and Harry is better!!!!..,.Avatar ImageKalin says: Yes... Harry drooling over Cho Chang and Hermione's encouraging of it is really... Sweet? And Harry stating he has no problem with Hermione going with Krum is also a sign of... Uhm... *confused now* Sorry, but as much screen time as Hermione and Harry are given together their chemistry is wishful thinking. Avatar Imagekatz10 says: ..,.well actually.,its not worth fighting with who looks better with who.,its just a matter of opinion.,and my opinion stays the same.,hermione and harry looks good together.,well to tell yah the truth.,emma and daniel looks good together.,hehehe..,.Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: wow! now that is what i call shipping! lol those couples are all pretty great R/H 4 life ha haAvatar ImageSlytherin Princess101 says: They have awesome chemistry, they are great together, I love them!!!Avatar ImageOverlyJonasObssessed says: nicE!!congatulati0ns mhaey!Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: Ohhh I hope they get *the awesome scene* right with these two!Avatar Imagesnapealicious says: They are so cute!Avatar ImageLady of the Lake says: I love it.
