Avatar ImagePeverellForever says: First!! Who did Stephen Fry play in Alice and Wonderland?Avatar ImageHedwig2751 says: Yay, first. Deathly Hallows part 1 is very thrilling and I would have been surprised if it wasn't nominated for at least 1. Can't wait for part 2 to come out. I'm sure it's going to be even better.Avatar ImageHedwig2751 says: When I was writing my comment I was the first, so don't mind me.Avatar ImageWant to be a Weasley says: @PeverellForever - Stephen Fry portrayed Chessur, the Cheshire Cat. Congrats to DH1 and all of the wonderful actors and actresses nominated. I am a little surprised that DH1 did not have more nominations.Avatar Imagezoltan42 says: The one I like is Art Direction, primarily Stuart Craig.Avatar ImagePeverellForever says: @Want to be a Weasley. Thanks! I couldn't remember. I knew Alan Rickman played Absolam (sp?) and Helena Bonham Carter played the Red Queen, but i couldn't remember that one.Avatar ImageGene L. says: Keep it up! We are looking forward to see more progress in the future. Cheers!Avatar Imageshi suisen says: Congrats to all the actors and actresses nominated. :D Hope DH1 wins somethingAvatar ImageHarryLoony says: I am disappointed ='( Avatar Imageclpotter says: i really hope it wins the hp movies deserve more recognition and hope part 2 gets more nominations next year. i have a feeling that it willAvatar Imagetoughpygmypuffs says: yayy:)part 2 is going to be even better!Avatar ImageCDR says: DH1 could have won more..Avatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: great, it is time for the HP saga to get an oscar!Avatar Imagenitaro48 says: I know that it's been nominated and everything... which is great don't get me wrong. But the competition is really good and Harry Potter has this air of "just a teen fad", which anyone who has read the books can say is not true. My point is that I really hope they win but to me it seems quite unlikely.Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: That's awesome. Wish they one an Oscar.Avatar ImageMatea says: amazing! we'll see..Inception and Alice are some competition!Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: This is good but I am VERY DISAPPOINTED that it did not get a nomination for BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY. The camera choices, lighting and scene selection really made all of those 'apparate and hide' scenes flow so smoothly and hold my interest when they could have been really boring. Even the portrayal of the broken shard of mirror was brilliant.Avatar Imagevioletstory says: Stephen Fry played the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland :)Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: Great! I hope DH wins,it`d be about time that the academy recognises the HP films. and i agree with everyone else,it should have been nominated in more categories like in cinematography,etcAvatar ImageFiliusMcGonagall says: Congratulations ang good luck to the hp crew/staff.Avatar Imagecloethebelatrixlover says: All hp stuff should win everything! Avatar ImageTheGoldenSeeker says: OMG, this is soooooo fantastic!!!! :D I really wish the film wins at least one Oscar... Stuart Craig really does an amazing art job in every movie and I really think he desrves the Oscar!!! ;) But also, the visual effects are always brilliant so they should win, too. :P I think this is great considering that last year it was nominated for only one award. I'm sure the second part will get more nominations cause it'll be spectacular!! :D I think it could be nominated for picture of the year, too... ;)Avatar Imagehewy says: Best of luck with the nominations and winning. Seems remote but we will hope for the best!!!!!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Yay DH!! Good luck!!! Wow! Helena Bonham Carter was nominated for a lot/the movies she was in were. She is such a great actress!!Avatar ImagePotterParish says: Guys harry potter is awesome....But INCEPTION BLEW the visual catagory out of the water....Part 2 will get a lot next year...Avatar ImageCatherine says: Wow, its up against some serious competition! No offense, i love harry w/ all my heart and soul, but those other movies really deserve it! (the king's speach is epic!)Avatar ImageExpectoPatronum512 says: Sweet! XDAvatar Imagekbicprez says: Very Happy about the DH1 nominations, especially for Stuart Craig. His HP work has been BRILLIANT.Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I'd love Stuart Craig to win. He's the one person on that team who consistently betters my imagination and I wholly thank him for it! His designs will live with me through every reading of HP forever. And yeah... this is the 2nd last chance... just one oscar, please!Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I loved the cinematography too, was disappointed it wasn't nominated but to be fair HBP and Debonnel's (I think that was his name, Bruce Debonnel) cinematography was slighlty more innovative. But DH's was so much more engaging. Some of those camera movements and choices were simply stunning, couldn't believe I was HP. So I'm very disappointed with the cinematography snub tooAvatar ImageA Sluggish Memory says: Congrats! They did so well to deserve these nominations!Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: ExcellentAvatar Imageemigirl1013 says: YIPEE! Now they just have to win.... No biggy, right? Hmmph. They'd better... :)Avatar Imageakcorr says: God I cannot wait for part 2!!!!Avatar Imageakcorr says: God I cannot wait for part 2!!!!Avatar ImageGottaGetBackToHogwarts says: This is great. If not this film, the last one better rake in the Oscars! Avatar Imageksddancer says: I hope we do great but good luck to everyone!Avatar Imagemollypooh12347 says: This is amazing! :) :) :) :)Avatar Imagegreenfinch says: hell yeah! they definitely deserve it.Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: That’s awesome.Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: Congradulations to to ALL of the Actors and Actresses in Part 1, it was AWESOME and I know that Part 2 of Deathly Hallows is going to be even more AWESOME!!!!! Avatar ImageSohumdore says: Part two is going to win twice as much as Part 1!Avatar ImagePetra says: That's great! I really hope they'll win something cuz they definitely deserved it!Avatar Imagemew5645 says: yeah!!!!!!Avatar ImageFresca says: I hope that HP films win some award, especially when the series as a whole is completed. Some awards now would be great too! If you haven't seen the King's Speech, go! It has some amazing acting, and the story is very moving. Check up a bit on the history first, as it will make the film more enjoyable. Timothy Spall plays Churchill, and although you don't see him for very long in the movie, he is very good indeed. Avatar ImageRedbeard says: This film won't win the awards. The special effects and art direction weren't as grand as with films like Alice in Wonderland. I think the next one will get much more attention and probably deserve it. I'm just happy it wasn't nominated for razzies like Eclipse. At the razzies they love tackling populair franchises. That they didn't nominate an easy target like DH1, proves what a great film it was. Avatar ImageHogwartsHP says: Wonderful news !§!Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: Actually, I think Helena Bonham Carter's role as Bellatrix LeStrange was a bigger stretch than her portrayal as Queen Elizabeth. She is really good in everything I've seen her do.Avatar ImageSindi says: Thats great ^^ wish them good luck! :D Avatar Imagesirius33 says: WOW AWESOME! Thats great!Avatar Imagejackyfaber101 says: Can't wait for part 2!!!!!! Avatar Imagekatherine102678 says: It should have been nominated for more!Avatar Imagesampsongregory says: HP could be seen as a teens or (ouch!) a kid's film, which always hurts in the eyes of Academy voters. I remember 10 years ago when Sorcerer's Stone competed against Lord of the Rings for special effects or visual effects, and HP lost. I thought, and still do, that HP got robbed. I don't expect DH 1 to win because the Academy will think they can honor HP next year with DH 2--just like the Rings had to wait for the last picture to get the full recognition and honors. So next year's awards will be the time the Academy voters show their real feelings about the HP phenomenon.Avatar ImageSEHAL says: HP WILL GET OSCAR Avatar Imagedevilskinn says: I wish they would receive an Oscar... it's their finale chance with DH :-? @Want to be a Weasley I think these are the fields HP shines in. Even though I really like the actors, one has to accept that these are not "Oscar" - roles... Helena Bonham Carter did receive a nomination so hurray for that :-)Avatar Imagehandhrfan18 says: yay! it is great they are nominated an oscar! i hope they win <3, they would deserve itAvatar ImageFiniteincantatum says: I really wish that the HP movies would receive oscars, but nevertheless, the books are much much better. The movies add the wow factor to the books, in my opinion. But win or lose, HP movies are still the best!Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I knew it, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 would get a lot of awards, because, it's amazing. Amazing. =]
