Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling was honored this past afternoon at the 17th Annual Women in Film and Television Awards held in London, England. The event, which took place over lunch today, ‘recognizes the contribution of women in the U.K. film and TV industries’ and seeks to support the interests, status, and diversity of women in those industries. Variety is reporting Ms. Rowling received the Script Award, which was sponsored by the U.K. Film Council.

Images are now also online from the event courtesy of Getty. You can now see a few photos of actress Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), who was in attendance at the event, here.

Congratulations Jo!

Congratulations Jo! You absolutely deserve every award in my humble opinion :-) This seems like an early Christmas present for you.

She must have collected hundred of awards by now… Congratulations mrs Rowling!

Well -she deserves it. She has created a wonderful thing of which she should be justly proud. I find the updating of her site today very amusing; she can’t go “cold turkey” from the world of Potter yet can she ?

Yay Jo! Congratulations; you totally deserve it!

I guess Jo wasn’t there, since there aren’t any pictures of her?

Avatar Image says:

Well, her books were turned into a movie and she co-worked on the script, and that’s what she won for. I think that’s what they meant.
