"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" was awarded "Movie of the Year" at the annual RAAM Awards, which took place at a gala ceremony in London today at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square. Also nominated for "Movie of the Year" were "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" and "Up."

RAAM Award-winners are determined by box office data as well as by an advisory board comprised of representatives of the U.K. and Irish film distribution and exhibition industry. The Hollywood Reporter quotes Roger Pollock of Paramount Pictures on the success of the U.K. and Ireland at the box office in the past year:

For the first time the U.K market passed the £1 billion ($1.6 billion) mark. This is a major achievement and shows that despite the recession the U.K. and Irish cinema had a fantastic year. Box office figures confirm the public vote on the top movies released during the year.
More information on the awards can be found on the RAAM Awards website.

Glad they are recognized for the great film they created even if the pricks from the oscars don’t give them props.

I think my love for the books may have a lot to do with the disappointment in the HBP movie. I Don’t think it deserved an award. It was too dark. At one point the only way I recognized Mr. Weasley was by his sweater when he was in the room with Lupin. I kept squinting to see what was in some scenes. They added things to the movie where they could have put something in that actually happened in the book. When they showed Dumbledore’s funeral it was so short of a scene that if you blinked you missed it. The first three HP movies were Ideal. Those deserve awards.HIP! HIP! HORAY! FOR THE FIRST THREE HP MOVIES!
