Reader Annie writes to tell us that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone has received the following nominations from the Young Artist Awards:

Best Family Feature Film - Drama
Best Ensemble in a Feature Film - Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Tom Felton
Best Performance in a Feature Film, Leading Young Actor - Daniel Radcliffe
Best Performance in a Feature Film, Leading Young Actress - Emma Watson
Best Performance in a Feature Film, Supporting Young Actor - Tom Felton

The Harry Potter books are 'fattist' because they portray overweight kids in a bad way, it's been claimed. Harry's cousin Dudley is overweight - and he's also selfish, stupid, lazy and greedy.

Pravda reports that the world seems to have gone mad after Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling was issued. Millions of editions are being instantly sold out, while shops are full of round glasses and magic wands. Children are disappointed to know they have good vision and cannot wear round glasses. Even university girls prefer the book about the young wizard to Bulgakov.
