Yay! He really deserved it, he played an amazing Albus. Compared to his protrayal of Dumbeldore in the Fifth. Do you remember the part in the hearing when he put his hands on his hip?? That was so un-Dumbeldore. But anyways, Michael Gambon was awesome in HBP!

Well deserved!! I love Harris, but he lacked energy, not sure why so many people preferred him over Gambon. It said in more than one of the books how Dumbledore was always glowing and full of energy, extending his arms in welcome to his students as if nothing pleased him more…

Gambon always hit that description right on the head, and sadly I never thought Harris (R.I.P.) was capable of that. Maybe in an old man sort of way, but lacking all the warm energy that my mind’s eye Dumbledore always had in abundance.

Good for him! I just simply can’t imagine Richard Harris doing the battle scene with Voldemort in Order of the Phionex or him in the cave in Half-Blood Prince. I’m a little bit doubtful that his preformance is Award-Winning…

I’m always happy to see HP actors getting recognized for their work. I think Michael Gambon’s portrayal of Dumbledore was at it’s best in Half-Blood Prince.
