HBP isn't even close.Avatar Imagetaoist1 says: Prisoner of Azkaban is still my favorite movie. I wish Tim Burton would have directed one of the movies. I would love to see his vision of the Hogwarts world. Tennis anyone = davidantczak.com :)Avatar Imageratorr2 says: Tim Burton would've been interesting to see. They should've used him instead of one of the directors they used. Congratulations Jo!Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: Congrats Rowling. Hp5 and 7 are my favourites.Avatar Imagedevilskinn says: Go Jo, go Jo, go, go Jo!Avatar ImageDaneM says: I really like the fact that Harry Potter won over Twilight in two of the categories XDAvatar ImageBless_the_children says: I can't really think of a better villain than Voldemort - maybe he comes in second to Hitler in my mind (even though they're practically the same person).Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Congrats, Jo! I'm so excited for ye.Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: CONGRATULATIONS JO! Well deserved. Avatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: YAY! GO JO!! You really deserve it x)Avatar ImageFresca says: Great news! Jo is my favorite author, although PD James is pretty close. I am glad that Jo 's work is being recognized. I think the HP stories will be read for a long, long time! I thought the ending of Half Blood Prince could have been a bit stronger, but liked the movie. I think that Deathly Hallows will surpass it easily though, as Warners are not going to cut out so much of the story.Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: Great news!!! :D JK Rowling deserves all the praise:)Avatar Imageiris lily says: i like no.5 but noone else in my family does..... but i love them all and think they're all amazing! Well done Jo!Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Looks like not enough Canadian teen readers are aware of the best fantasy author in their own midst, Guy Gavriel Kay. Maybe it's because most of his books aren't pitched specifically at the Young Adult market. But anybody who loves epic fantasy, especially with a historical context, should enjoy them.Avatar ImageLonewolf_ says: Hehe, Voldemort is a very good villain!;dAvatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: Well done i really like book 3 myself but i just can't stop listening and readying them all.

Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: I know that Indigo store! It's huge, I went there only once. But I could spend hours there. I can't believe I wasn't there!!!!

Rowling!Avatar ImageRavenclawGirl13 says: Yeah! Jo is my favorite author, so kudos to her!Avatar ImageJK.jr. says: I don't agree with the first award, i found the 1st or 2nd much better adaptaions, and Jo wouldn't get the award, the screen writers and directors should get it. But the 2nd award is well deserved.Avatar ImageJK.jr. says: I don't agree with the first award, i found the 1st or 2nd much better adaptaions, and Jo wouldn't get the award, the screen writers and directors should get it.

This is awesome :)Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: Congrats to Jo, very well deserved! Though i disagree whole-heartedly with the first award, HBP is my favourite book and i thought the film was terrible, didn't feel like HP at all and at one point i was actually bored!Avatar Imagejacket says: Awesome! I voted! I'm really glad HBP got best all time fave!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Congrats JK Rowling.Avatar ImagePygmyPuffPia says: Congratulations Jo, you really deserve it!Avatar Imagehermione198k says: She really deserves all the awards she gets!Avatar Imagemolly43 says: I agreePhoenix1946 I think "HPSS" should be at the top, followed by HPCS, HPPA and then HPGF they went downhill from there and I don't see the other movies as cutting it. Of course they all cut it in term of JKR'S books. CONGRATULATIONS TO MY FAVORITE AUTHJOR - JKR! The HPSS movie did the best in portraying the essence of her book HPCS and HPPA weren't bad either. She is such a genius in writing. Avatar ImageElphabaROCKS1 says: How could it NOT win? Congrats JKR!!!Avatar Imagepigwey says: Congrats, Jo!!truly, truly deserve itAvatar Imagepigwey says: Congrats, Jo!!truly, truly deserve itAvatar Imagehewy says: Congratulations to Jo and many more awards and recognition to come. I could not agree more with Phoenix1946 HBP was a complete disappointment as a movie to me. SS/PS, COS and PoA were still the best movies.Avatar Imagemystiqueminx says: Congrats Jo! We love you
