No Music for Deathly Hallows? I thought the music was incredible.

I hate the fact that the series is getting almost no recognition for its brilliance! =( This really upsets me and makes me question the whole of the series! =(

The movie does not need awards to prove its fantasticalness, cause we’ve all seen it and love it. A price is just something to appreciate, but we all know how good the movie is even without these medals. Congrets guys!

Well done guys!! :)
however, harry potter is the most successful movie franchise and is hardly getting any recognition!!!
Harry potter should have also been in the original music and certainly best film !!, i also think that rupert could have been a contender for best actor, maybe thats because i’m biased towards harry potter though :P

It was nice to see Helena Bonham Carter play a non-skeezy character in “The King’s Speech.” It’s been a while since she actually looked attractive in a movie.

We all know the HP series deserves more than two nominations. I hope it gets recognized later this year after DH2

The Hog's Head bar comprised one small, dingy, and very dirty room that smelled strongly of something that might have been goats.
