As we reported earlier, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has been nominated for two awards at the British Academy of Film and Television Awards, with recognition in the “Special Visual Effects,” and “Production Design” categories. Those awards were presented tonight in London, England, with actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in attendance (shown here with acclaimed actor Daniel Day – Lewis). UPDATE: Dan was set to present an award tonight, and news reports say the “Harry Potter star Radcliffe got one of the biggest cheers of the night from the crowd.” He said: “I’m very excited. I’ve never been to the Bafta’s before. This is great, even better than the Oscars because it’s British. I’m so excited about all these amazing people that turn up.” UPDATE 2: The awards have now been completed, however there is disappointing news, as OotP lost out on both their nominations, with wins going to The Golden Compass for Visual Effects and Atonement for Production Design. UPDATE 3: Thanks to our Order partner DanRadcliffe.com, you can now see video of Dan at the ceremony tonight. You can see more of Dan at this event, as well as nominated actress Julie Christie (Madam Rosmerta) here in our galleries.

The awards are being broadcast in the UK on the BBC, with the US to see the broadcast of the show on cable channel BBC America tonight at 8pm (ET). Actor Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) is also among those due to attend, as he will be presenting an award. Anyone who can capture video of the ceremony, please send it in!
