Now that 2008 is here, many media outlets continue to look back at 2007. Here is a brief round up of some of the latest in this group of lists:

AOL Moviefone has released the poll results of their The Best and Worst of 2007. It is not a surprise that the Harry Potter films and actors placed at the top in many of these categories. Actor Ralph Fiennes, who pays Dark Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter films, was chosen as their ‘Best Male Villain’ with 34% of the vote while “Order of the Phoenix” also made it on their ‘Best Movie Sequel of 2007’ list; the voters put the fifth film in third place with 16%. Films were not the only aspect of Harry Potter included in Moviefone’s ranking. The news of Albus Dumbledore’s sexuality ranked as the forth ‘Biggest News Story of the Year.’ Moviefone looks into the future as well, naming the upcoming “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” one of the movies voters are most excited to see in 2008.

In a similar fashion, Yahoo released a number of related lists. Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) are both among the site’s list of the ‘Most Popular Movie Stars of 2007.’ Coming in at 3rd and 10th place, respectively, the actors joined such break out actors as Shia LaBeouf (“Transformers”) and popular Hollywood actresses as Angelina Jolie (“A Mighty Heart”) on the list. “Order of the Phoenix” ranked fifth in the Top 10 Movies of 2007, according to Yahoo as well.

In case you missed it when we first reported it this past November when the UK Film Council made the first announcement, the BBC has an article online placing “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” in first place at the UK box office this year. Including the latest box office totals, the fifth Potter film has grossed more than £49.4 million.

Thanks to all who mailed!
