Early this morning in Los Angeles, the 82nd Annual Academy Award nominations were announced, and the "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" film received a nod for Best Cinematography. The sixth Potter film was nominated along side such other films in this category as "Avatar," "The Hurt Locker," "Inglourious Basterds," and "The White Ribbon."
The telecast o the 82nd Academy Awards will be broadcast live Sunday, March 7th starting at 8pm EST on ABC.
Congratulations to all at HBP!
It’s a tough competition! However, it DOES have chances. Avatar has 9 nominations and it can’t win in all of them. The academics can’t let this happen. Because there is competition, differencies, lobby and all sort of disagreements inside the Academy. So, it is possible that HP receives the award. Let’s hope! :D
Why can’t Avatar win 9 of 9? King won 11 of 11, after all.
As for the nomination, well, it is cool, but it also is quite telling how down the Academy is on HP that Prince did not get a nomination for anything else.
Well done, Harry! I don’t really think it should be awarded that though. No offence, but I never really thought of HBP as film thought could be nominated for “Best Cinematography”.
It definitely deserves it. I was hoping this movie would get a good amount more nominations. It is the only film in the series that has a heart really and it truly is magnificent. I don’t think the feeling I got from HBP will be duplicated in either of the next two films. I am keeping hope alive however that DH part 2 will have a heart as well. As for the chance of it winning this award I’d say there is a very good chance as It was truly incredible cinematography.
