I personally liked Avatar… it was a well-made movie. But I still root for HBP over anything so I hope it does well!

Avatar doesn’t have the award yet, people, honestly! I’m not counting HBP out anyway.

That’s great news. Avatar will probably win, but I loved the cinematography and VFX in HBP, most impressive one yet I’d say.
