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.

YAY for HBP!!!! I truly hope they win but sadly they are up against Avatar and a few others that are more popular…. so not sure it’ll win. I still have my fingers crossed!
