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.

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… ;)

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!

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 too
