Congratulations WB for being nominated! Stuart Craig definitely deserves a BAFTA for all his efforts in OoTP. The Ministry was one of the best sets ever. Visual Effects too. I agree with matea the fight between Dumbledore and Voldemort was awesome! Fingers crossed.

The film was so boring, I nearly slept at the cinema.

The visual effects were, IMO, absolutely stunning, however they didn’t really contribute anything new so I doubt OOTP will win that one.

i liked the movie but i think it could’ve been better. i dont like the actor who portrays dumbledore, i dont think he fits the, idk profile of w/e. he;s just not my dumbledore. but over all the movie was ok, im hoping HBP is better, its one of my favorite books =]

I was so hoping Imelda Staunton would get nominated for Supporting Actress given the praise she has received. But only two? The lowest number of noms any Potter film has got so far….. Its the second best film (the first is POA) and had it been better scripted (IE the lack of much exposition is just lazy, can’ tWB get a decent writer for a change, who is actually English, it would solve the writers strike problem :)) it would have been the best.
