Congratulations to all!
That’s awesome, I’m glad DH is getting some critical recognition, it was the best by far out of all the movies … and hey, part 2’s bound to be awesome!
a couple people have been telling me they’ve heard part 2’s release date has changed to november… that’s utter rubbish, isn’t it? Just because I haven’t heard anything of the sort!
BewareoftheNargles: I hope that’s rubbish. I will cry a thousand tears if that happens. I may be in NYC in July, where I hope the premiere will be. I will be crushed.
Anyway, I’m happy there’s Oscar buzz. I hope Part 2 gets nominated for Best Film in 2012 because the series as a whole needs to be recognized and that will be the last chance.
Yay DH! They deserve it for everything in that list! Also, Helena Bonham Carter definitely deserves the best Supporting Actress for The King’s Speech! That movie was really, really, really good!
