His portrayal was good but i’m not sure if it is an award winning one. Best of luck though to Mr. Gambon!

I thought Gambon was very impressive in all the HP films, especially HBP! He really brought to life all the dimensions of Dumbledore’s character. I think Jim Broadbent also deserves some recognition for his role as Slughorn. He was pretty awesome too.

That is competition, but I think he has a very good chance.

Have they been watching the same Michael Gambon as I have? He was marginally sufficient in HBP but that’s because he had nowhere else to go but up from GOF & OOTP.

I know not everyone’s in love with his portrayal of Albus Dumbledore, but to me he truly pulled it off.
