“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” and the Harry, Ron and Hermione actors are among those nominated in the National Movie Awards 2010. The sixth film in the Harry Potter series has received a nod in the Family category and will face “A Christmas Carol,” “Alvin and the Chipmunks II,” Emma Thompson’s recent project “Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang” and Disney Pixar’s “Up” to compete for the public vote.

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) have also all been nominated for the Performance of the Year Award. Emma Thompson (Professor Sibyll Trelawney) is up for the same award for her role as Nanny McPhee in “Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang.” There are a total of 19 nominees for this award, including principal actors in “New Moon,” “Avatar” and “Sherlock Holmes.”

You can vote here on the National Movie Awards 2010 website, with voting closing on the 30th of April. The awards ceremony will take place in London’s Royal Festival Hall on the 26th of May and will air on ITV1.

Hope you win:DAvatar ImageLove is the greatest magic says: Voted! The Harry Potter vote is going to be split three ways in the last category which really isn't going to help their chances which is a shame.Avatar ImageLove is the greatest magic says: Why isn't my post showing? I said that it's a shame the Harry Potter vote will be split in the last category as it will reduce the chances of one of them winning. Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: Good Luck to Everybody, I have put my votes in!!!!! It will be exciting to see who wins!!!! lol GO GO HARRY POTTER (Daniel Radcliffe!!!!!)Avatar ImageWendelin the Weird says: Just voted. Go Harry!Avatar ImageEvagirl says: Just voted. I think it should be nominated for fantasy not family though...Avatar ImageMadam Snape says: I loved Emma Thompson in both Nanny McPhee movies! She's brilliant! And of course I'm very happy for Dan, Rupert and Emma and HBP for this much deserved honor. Congrats!!! I hope Harry Potter take home a few...Avatar Imagekiwimci says: um is this still going ahead, you know what with us not being allowed to fly in Europe? Remember volcano? Anyone? I've been stuck in Ireland for the past week. Can't get a flight back to London, so how's anyone else outside of GB gonna get there if this doesn't clean up by then?Avatar Imagehrhgnl says: You have to be a UK resident to win the tickets to attend. Bummer! I thought Rupert deserved the break through performance. His comedic(?) timing was great in the movie.Avatar Imageelys_hphg says: Just Voted!!!! Hope they win. Avatar Imagechanngalambeatrice says: Good luck, they are the best!Avatar ImageLove is the greatest magic says: Third time lucky. I can't see my posts so hopefully this one will work. The problem with the last category is that the Harry Potter vote will be split which will unfortunately mean that it will decrease the chances of Dan, Emma or Rupert winning. Avatar ImageLove is the greatest magic says: Yay, finally it worked! No idea what went wrong there. Avatar ImageBellatrixGranger says: pfff wheres the Slytherin nominations? Joke Congratulations to all nominated and good luck : DAvatar Imagecha_granger says: Good luck to everyone whose nominated. Good luck to all three of them.

Avatar ImageFifi says: I don't really think HP should be in the Family category though. More like the Fantasy. Oh well, hope it works out well for everyone in HP! :DAvatar Imagehermione97 says: Good luck, hope Harry Potter films win in every category they are nominated in.Avatar ImageFilmGirl27 says: Best of luck to Rupert, Dan and Emma!

You Rock. luv yah!Avatar ImageTotal-Eclipse014 says: Voted (Y) didn't who to vote for out of Dan, Emma and Rupert. It was tough! Avatar ImageSeidenschnabel says: I love Harry Potter, but I thought HBP was an appalling rendition of JKR's story and am casting my vote for UP. This is the part where some of you are supposed to tell me to enjoy the movies for what they are, which I generally do, except when half of the movie is too boring to watch. With that being said, I will admit that I thought Rupert Grint was funny and that Dan Radcliffe wasn't such a stiff when he was on Felix Felicious.Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: VOTED! so hard to choose the actor one.Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Good luck to them all... including Helena Bonham Carter for playing an awesome Red Queen!

Hope they win!Avatar Imageblue4t says: Harry Potter not in the family category? It's in the Family category and I'll take that, but it is fantasy. I'd also like to say woo-hoo to Rosi for putting the trio in alphabetical order thus having Grint's name first in the title. :p Avatar Imageblue4t says: Woops, I meant not in the fantasy category, since it most obviously is in the family category.
