It’ll be so cool if HBP wins and all of us( the Fans) are gong to be prouder than EVER! Even if they don’t win, all we have to do is wait for Deathly Hallows Part 1 & 2, because the whole wide world knows that its going to be one film that they’ll NEVER be able to forget!

To be honest, I don’t think they’re going to win. What with Avatar being one of the other nominees. But being nominated for an Oscar—I believe this is Harry Potter’s 7th Oscar nomination—is the prize itself. :)

It fully deserves that nomination, and in my opinion a win as well. It is a stunning looking movie!

I hope that it wins this very high honor! : ) It would be very well deserved. Each movie is getting progressively better and better, with the 6th movie being the best by far, in my opinion.

Go, Harry Potter!!! :D

Being nominated is supposed to be quite an honor, however winning would be so much nicer! I agree that the academy does seem to have a bias against HP.
Good luck anyway and a pox upon the rest.
