"Half-Blood Prince" Wins Movie of the Year at RAAM Awards

Film Awards

"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.

@molly 43, I always hate when they change things from the books also. But, I am happy that HBP won! I always just try to look at the movies as an addition to the books, if I didn’t look at it that way, I probably wouldn’t watch any of the movies except for the first 2 and possibly PoA.

Way to go HBP :)
I thought Ice Age 3 was a pretty good movie altho, not in the same league as HPB but, it’s great to see HBP fight off some tough competition. woohoo HP as Movie of the Year, how cool is that :)
