Clip from "Half-Blood Prince" Airs at End of Oscars

As promised, a very brief clip from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was broadcast tonight at the end of the Oscar awards. However, this was part of a montage segment of other films with no sound included, and most of the footage appeared to be taken from one of the earlier trailers. UPDATE: It is now on YouTube here, thanks to UHP!
 What we did see included brief shots of Quidditch, Draco on the Hogwarts Express, Harry looking in the Pensieve and Ron and Hermione looking upwards at something. One shot of interest showed Dumbledore and Harry in the cave, with Dumbledore grasping the chain to lift the Voldemort's old boat from the waters. We hope to have this video up in our galleries soon, and will update when we can.

So I hear the people in the Quiddich shot are actually Ginny and Ron. If you keep repeating the 2 sec’s over and over again you can see that one of them has much too long hair to be Harry, and the other is wearing Ron’s helmet.

Pretty disappointing; the footage they showed was muted – just repeat combination of clips from the trailers. I expected an entire clip of a scene…Oh, well. :-/

Also where I live (az) they did not show the credits after the oscars, just cut straight to the stupid news. it was an outrage, but apparently I didn’t miss much…
