"Half-Blood Prince" Wins at 2010 National Movie Awards

This evening, the 2010 National Movie Awards took place in London, and the "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" won in the Family category. The Harry Potter series was also honored in for a Special Recognition award. A number of images of actors Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Bonnie Wright, along with film producers David Baron and David Heyman and director David Yates, who were on hand to receive the award, can be seen right here.
I feel that all of the actors and actresses were great and deserved an award for their acting but I don’t feel the producers or directors deserved an award for the movie itself. The movie was so dark in some scenes that the only way I knew who was in the scene was by their clothes that I could almost see. I don’t feel they captured the essence of the book (did any of them even read the book?). The atmosphere is so drab. too much of the “good times” were left out. Unnecessary scenes were added in where they could have used more of what actually happened in the book. If we reward for what’s not well done then people have less incentive to do better. I believe this is why we don’t have better HP films. Are we voting just because they’ve produced a HP film or because they did it well? I bought the film because I enjoy HP and want to see as much of the book in production as possible but I don’t think the production deserved an award.
Did anyone notice the Deathly Hallows preview that was in the middle of the vignette of all the other Harry Potter films? Ollivander was talking over the top of the cut scenes about the Deathly Hallows, there was a chase through the woods and a fair number of other bits and pieces. I thought it would have been reported on here. It was the first clip I’ve seen of the Deathly Hallows.
when the video was showed for the recognition award it made me cry cus it’s just so near the endd !!!!
but i am so proud of themm !! :) :) :) :) :)
