The First Light Film of the Decade was voted on by the public, in association with the BAFTA Kids’ Vote. “Prisoner of Azkaban” was up against films such as “Shrek,” “Whale Rider,” “Happy Feet,” and “Up.”
Actress Clemence Poesy (Fleur Delacour) was in attendance at the ceremony in London. Photos of her can be seen via Getty Images.
Update: The BBC reported that Ms Poesy presented the award to producer David Heyman at the ceremony. In his acceptance speech, he is quoted as saying:
“It’s especially exciting and moving to be voted Film of the Decade by children aged five to 15.
“We made the film for children of all ages to 105
really, but clearly a core part of our audience is young people and to
be honoured is a privilege.”
