Avatar Imagerettophantom says: No Music for Deathly Hallows? I thought the music was incredible.Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Congratulations guys.Avatar ImageSrose says: That's so great, all though I feel like it could have won more :(Avatar ImageCDR says: Congratulations!! But i agree with Srose, "it could have won more".Avatar ImageFiliusMcGonagall says: I hope it wins at least 1. And congratulations to the filmakers and to helenaAvatar ImageHarryLoony says: I hate the fact that the series is getting almost no recognition for its brilliance! =( This really upsets me and makes me question the whole of the series! =(Avatar ImageGene L. says: The movie does not need awards to prove its fantasticalness, cause we've all seen it and love it. A price is just something to appreciate, but we all know how good the movie is even without these medals. Congrets guys!Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: Well done guys!! :) however, harry potter is the most successful movie franchise and is hardly getting any recognition!!! Harry potter should have also been in the original music and certainly best film !!, i also think that rupert could have been a contender for best actor, maybe thats because i'm biased towards harry potter though :PAvatar Imagefilmalicia says: It was nice to see Helena Bonham Carter play a non-skeezy character in "The King's Speech." It's been a while since she actually looked attractive in a movie. Avatar Imagecloethebelatrixlover says: Honestly, who wouldn't give DHP1 every award possible??Avatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: We all know the HP series deserves more than two nominations. I hope it gets recognized later this year after DH2Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: They deserved every award but still congrats on the ones they got!Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Congrats everyone!Avatar Imageksddancer says: Good job everyone!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Good job!Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: AWESOME!!!! and maybe with the 2nd Half of Deathly Hallows, they will get at least 4 more!!!!! Totally AWESOME indeed!!!!!Avatar ImageButterfly_Boy says: it almost smells of a scam; Harry Potter films getting so little recognition, in spite of its wonderful actors, good music, beautiful sets and magical props. It's always a pleasure to see the actors receive nominations or awards for their achievements elsewhere.Avatar ImageFresca says: Congratulations to the actors!Avatar Imagemolly43 says: HPDH PT 1 was much better than the last three HP movies and should get more nominations. I really enjoyed this film. I hope that as soon as they finish the series tht in a couple of years they will begin a new HP series of movies based on the books like they do spiderman, superman, etc. Avatar Imagesirius33 says: I just hope someone from Potter wins. I was disappointed that Potter wasn't even mentioned in the Golden Globes. Come on! It was a GREAT movie!Avatar ImageHarryPotterGirl (Hermione) says: Congratulations!!! Should be more I so agree.Avatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: and 2 academy awards now!!!Avatar Imagenitaro48 says: I commented about this after the Oscars post this morning but I think I will say it again. I really love the fact that Harry Potter is getting recognition but I'm worried that it will never win because of the competition. The competition are all movies people think are sophisticated and smart and there is this premonition that Harry Potter is merely an obsession. Which it isn't at all!!! The books were absolutely genius and everyone who made the movies did their very best so the movies need to get the attention they deserve... all in all I hope they win and aren't judged just because. Avatar Imagekiwimci says: You know they're nominated they haven't got them. I think everyone here is being pretty biased. Come on! Be a bit more objective people. Truth is adore these films but they don't deserve acting recognition. We can only hope DH2 arrives with a bang that no one was expecting, including all these academies and associations. It would be nice for HP to close with a couple of high profile awards on its back. After all the books have achieved them
