Kiwi, two days ago. ProfessorCharms, sadly I don’t think we have a chance for either, but it’s very cool for HBP to be nominated with those films.

I’d be really surprised if Avatar doesn’t win in both categories. It was amazing. And I really liked Half-Blood Prince, but I don’t think it has a chance.

RE ravenseeker, it’s the British Academy Film and Television Awards, so ‘T’ is for Television.

Avatar will probably win because the critics are all over it right now and HP came out months ago. But HBP DESERVES to win! The special effects were amazing!!! I hope it gets another Oscar nomination!!

So, Leaky friends, any predictions? I think HBP has a better shot of winning production design than special visual effects – what do you think? It’s tough going up against Avatar in those two categories!!
