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
