I knew Gleeson and Fiennes were going to be in it but seeing Poesy turn up was an awesome suprise. It was a wicked hilarious film and I'm going to buy the dvd when it comes out. I hope it wins!Avatar ImageDances with Dobby says: Yay!!! Congrats to everyone!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Congratulations to all of the nominations!Avatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: Yeah, my future husband is nominated! lol, jk. But i love Rob. Congrats to all the nomines.Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I really hope the ceremony isn't as boring as last year. The highlight was Emma Watson presenting one the rest of the tie was just really bad jokes and drunk actors. Not fun to watch. Hope Wall-E wins a few easily my favourite film of last yearAvatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: Go Robert!!!! Or Spunk Ransom. They should call him that. LOL.Avatar ImageFlourishandBlotts says: I love Robert! Good for him : )Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: I love Sweeney Todd! :) Good movie, good plot, GREAT acting. (Not to mention singing from Alan Rickman's part. Oh dear, he's amazing.)Avatar ImagePureblood-Slytherin says: Congrats Rob.. I hope he wins.. he's an incredible actor.. I actually heard about this on earlier today... i'm listening to him right now.. "I'll be your lover too".. best song ever!!!Avatar Imagecocoeple says: Congratulation everyone! :DAvatar ImageErinM says: Congrats, Congrats!Avatar ImageMiss Smarticle says: Congratulations to everyone, but I must say that I didn't care for Rob's acting in his newest movie, Twilight. =\ On another note, Sweeney Todd has to win! That film was simply amazing!Avatar ImageCatherine says: congrats!Avatar Imagerebel says: congrats!Avatar ImageVioletPhoenix says: Wow congrats all! Well done!Avatar Imagekbicprez says: I'm really squeamish about violence on-screen. But I still went to see "Sweeney Todd" because Johnny Depp is one of my favorite actors. It is the GORIEST film I have ever seen. I knew the basic story, but I had no idea there would be so much blood. VERY NAIVE of me.Avatar ImageSidish_black6 says: I hope every1 win. . . . the only loser is me. . . . (but thats not possible)Avatar ImageHarryfan24 says: Everyone is so good, and all really deserve it! Congratulations!Avatar ImageMatea says: Rob is a great guy,and he totally deserves this award. He really is the best newcomer.Avatar ImageTimeTurnerFanx says: I think all the people in Harry Potter should win, excluding Rob. I mean, he's only in there for his Edward role in Twilight, not because he's a good Cedric, like he was. I hope they all win, though, especially Mad Eye. He's just a really good actor, and so is Helen Bonham Carter. And, I'm surprised they haven't reconized Ralph Fiennes yet. He plays a REALLY awesomely twisted Lord Voldemort, which seems really hard to play. Good luck to all of our favorite movie cast who were nominated, good luck and best wishes! Avatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: I still can't belive Rob went over to the dark side... Avatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: Good for them!Avatar Imagesofiag says: Ppl! Please vote on Helena Bonham Carter!!!! She deserves it!Avatar Imagesofiag says: Ppl! Please vote on Helena Bonham Carter!!!! She deserves it!Avatar Imagesofiag says: Ppl! Please vote on Helena Bonham Carter!!!! She deserves it!Avatar Imagesofiag says: Ppl! Please vote on Helena Bonham Carter!!!! She deserves it!Avatar Imagesofiag says: Ppl! Please vote on Helena Bonham Carter!!!! She deserves it!Avatar Imagesofiag says: Ppl! Please vote on Helena Bonham Carter!!!! She deserves it!Avatar Imageselene21 says: good for himAvatar ImageArithmancer says: I loved 'In Bruges' so much. It's just my kind of movie. :)Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: Congrats to all! Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: Why is Rob considered a newcomer? Is it because he was one of the main stars instead of supporting actor?Avatar Imageangelac123 says: Woah! Congrats to everyone! :DAvatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Congratulations Rob! :)Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: well good for him.Avatar Imagefirekeeper says: Congratulation Rob on your nomination!Avatar Imagecallicott3 says: COOL! Congrats, Mr Pattinson! Your Gryffindor Buddy Confederate LadyAvatar ImageKanedaX says: In Bruges is a brilliant film. Period. VOTE FOR IT.Avatar Imagemiriam the wounded says: I really hope he doesn't win. He hasn't made as many films or played as many varied chracters as either of the other nominees. Hayley Atwell was terrific in Brideshead Revisited and the Duchess last year. Jim Sturgess has been in a musical, thriller, IRA biopic and period film alongside Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson. Gemma Arterton (not the best actress but working along well) has done a Bond film, headed teen comedy, starred in a Hardy adaptation and played Elizabeth Bennet - all in the past 18 months. Toby Kebbel broke through in the excellent Dead Man's Shoes, headed a crime film and played in Control - one of the best films in 2007. I'm sorry, but Pattinson shouldn't be nominated against them. He'll probably win because I'm sure the Twilighters will come out to vote - but I don't think he deserves it. Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Congrats everybody! XDAvatar ImageZoeyLuna says: CONGRATS, ROB!!@! Is he being nominated for his performance as Cedric, or just as Edward? Or both? That would be pretty cool, too. They should just include everything he's done, methinks.Avatar ImageChantyBabez says: Awesome!! Go him :D xAvatar ImageBradyboy says: Congrats Rob, I think he did a fantastic job of potraying Edward in Twilight!Avatar Imagekelseycrucio says: Rob's great, but personally I would like to see Jim Sturgess take this one; I just loved him in Across the Universe and 21. Sweeney Todd was a great movie as well. Helena Bonham Carter is my hero, she's amazing at any role.Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: Squee!! Yeah Pattinson!Avatar Imagecleber says: good luck, robert!Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Congratulations to them all! I hope "In Bruges" and "Sweeney Todd" win. They are both amazing movies and are both very well acted. They totally deserve any awards they get.Avatar ImageMahayana says: I'm happy for him that he got nominated, but it's still a little weird since we've known him since GoF. :-)Avatar ImageHopelaa93 says: I hope you all win in your specfic category. Go Rob!Avatar ImageNayNay3782 says: Yay! He's a cool bean:DAvatar ImageAccioCloak says: Go Cedric!!!Avatar Imagechoirgeek says: Wooo!
