You see in the video speech, do ya think that’s a Harry costume? never really thought of Harry as a checked shirt man, he’s back to his Dudley hand me down days

But OOTP is classed as favourite drama film. Whilst Pirates wins Favourite Movie. I thought Pirates was slaughtered by audience and critics whislt OOTP was praised, yet it didnt even come in the top 3. I dont understand how these categories are defined and who is voting. Other categories have extremely shocking results too. Oh well, personally OOTP is my favourite film of the year anyway ;)

Congratulations Harry Potter Crew! Absolutely fantastic and well deserved! Also, thanks to all the “People” that voiced their opinion!

What is absolutely amazing is how mature, courteous, gracious, unpretentious, well-spoken, NORMAL, etc. Dan is, also Rupert and Emma! This is a real testimony to their parents! They are so NOT little Hollywood Brats! Thank Goodness Jo insisted on an English cast, I am so glad that she has kept such a tight rein on her creation!

Avatar Image says:

sweet going… i thought the film was mildly boring, but that’s awesome nonetheless. congratulations!

Avatar Image says:

cool deal, I’m glad they got that award and Dan was very gracious in his speech.

Avatar Image says:

You can definitely tell that it’s an internet vote. Sure, good movie, but look at the competition. No Country for Old Men isn’t even considered.

Avatar Image says:

Congratulations to all of the OotP cast, crew and JKR. You deserve each and every honor bestowed upon you.

Dan is such an excellent speaker and the fact that he takes the time out from his schedule to say thanks says a great deal about the kind of person he is. Now for the biased part of my post…. there is just something about him…

kanedax, i couldn’t agree more! i don’t think people’s choice awards are all that important when you consider it…

Avatar Image says:

je veux qu’il m’envois des méssages:harry potter

Avatar Image says:

Did anyone actually watch the ceremony? I could not stop laughing… Queen Latifah certainly looked like she was having a ball.

Avatar Image says:

Totally agree kanedax these awards aren’t taken that seriously. They are like the MTV Movie Awards rather than the Oscars.

But I’m glad HP won something =)

Avatar Image says:

Ooooh, Congratulations to everyone who worked on the Order of the Phoenix film! :D

Avatar Image says:

lets not dumb down the fact that it one an award no matter what it was. Congratulations to all the cast , this is after all voted for by the people of america- that is saying something , and I for one think that the movie s keep getting better with every installment, which is why Im on pins and needles to see the Half blood prince this year.

I just wanted to say congratulations to the OooP crew for the People’s Choice Award. My son and I have watched the film at least 10 times. We even traveled seven hours this summer to watch it on IMAX in 3D! We can’t wait for “Half-Blood Prince” this fall!!

Congrats OOTP ! But I am SOOOOO FREAKING MAD because I watched only up until they had 20 minutes left, thinking “Oh, since they haven’t even MENTIONED Harry Potter, I might as well leave and go to sleep!” But noo, now I’m reading this and I’m frustrated ! breathes in and out , breathes in and out And Pirates of the Caribbean won for … best movie or w/e!? Um … how about NOT, and change it to Harry Potter – which should have gotten every award during this award show. :) The nominees for some of these awards were really weird , like they just plopped in some movies or actors / actresses thinking “Oh yeah, that’ll just do.” O_o

@Amy S: I really wish I had! I don’t get “network TV”out here. I used to LOVE watching that ceremony! I am so glad that the fans did such a bang-up job, this year! And, yes, the “competition” WAS pretty good. Gemma: These awards are “serious” because they are voted on by the fans…not a bunch of suits who are getting paid really good to “vote for “my” candidate”....THIS award (like many others) is from those who actually saw the movies! What’s more, almost every acceptance speech (INCLUDING the one Dan gave) includes the words ‘It’s YOU the fans, that make this award so special”.
