Congratulations to the film for being nominated! Delbonnel did a fantastic job with regard to the cinematography for the movie, for which work he certainly does deserve to be recognized.

I went straight the the Visual Effects category because that’s the only category I heard HBP was in the running for. I was a bit sad that HBP didn’t get in the top 3 (I thought there was a slim chance they would anyway), but then I found out the got into Best Cinematography! Made my day…anyway congrats and good luck!

I thought HBP was gorgeous, but, unfortunately, Avatar is the obvious victor. :(

It would be nice to see HBP win, but with the competition they have I don’t think they will. Hopefully the last film will be a clean sweep with the awards shows & get to take away some accolades.

Guess That Book

"Keep going!" said Harry sharply, because Ginny showed signs of wanting to stop and watch the egg's progress back into a bird.[br]"You dawdled enough by that old arch!" she said crossly, but followed him past the bell jar to the only door behind it.
