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.

I was very disappointed. It was stuff we’ve already seen between the trailers and behind the scenes stuff that was out with the OOTP DVD. Between this and the MTV stuff I’m starting to get a little annoyed with the WB. I wanna see something juicy!

How measly. It’s literally like 6 seconds long. Just a few new shots rather than anything major.

I stayed up for that too, and skipped studying xD
But, at least we’ve got all that new stuff from Australia! It’s so good!

I wasn’t particularly impressed with the HBP footage (other than Dumbledore pulled on the chain, which was cool), but I really enjoyed the Oscars. They had talked about wanting to freshen things up and make the show entertaining again, and in my opinion, they succeeded. The show really was about celebrating all movies, not just the nominees. And I’m a huge musical fan, so I loved the musical numbers! :)
