"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" and the Harry, Ron and Hermione actors are among those nominated in the National Movie Awards 2010. The sixth film in the Harry Potter series has received a nod in the Family category and will face "A Christmas Carol," "Alvin and the Chipmunks II," Emma Thompson's recent project "Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang" and Disney Pixar's "Up" to compete for the public vote.

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) have also all been nominated for the Performance of the Year Award. Emma Thompson (Professor Sibyll Trelawney) is up for the same award for her role as Nanny McPhee in "Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang." There are a total of 19 nominees for this award, including principal actors in "New Moon," "Avatar" and "Sherlock Holmes."

You can vote here on the National Movie Awards 2010 website, with voting closing on the 30th of April. The awards ceremony will take place in London's Royal Festival Hall on the 26th of May and will air on ITV1.

I loved Emma Thompson in both Nanny McPhee movies! She’s brilliant! And of course I’m very happy for Dan, Rupert and Emma and HBP for this much deserved honor. Congrats!!! I hope Harry Potter take home a few…

um is this still going ahead, you know what with us not being allowed to fly in Europe? Remember volcano? Anyone? I’ve been stuck in Ireland for the past week. Can’t get a flight back to London, so how’s anyone else outside of GB gonna get there if this doesn’t clean up by then?

You have to be a UK resident to win the tickets to attend. Bummer! I thought Rupert deserved the break through performance. His comedic(?) timing was great in the movie.

Third time lucky. I can’t see my posts so hopefully this one will work. The problem with the last category is that the Harry Potter vote will be split which will unfortunately mean that it will decrease the chances of Dan, Emma or Rupert winning.
