Yay, first.
Deathly Hallows part 1 is very thrilling and I would have been surprised if it wasn’t nominated for at least 1.
Can’t wait for part 2 to come out. I’m sure it’s going to be even better.

@PeverellForever – Stephen Fry portrayed Chessur, the Cheshire Cat.

Congrats to DH1 and all of the wonderful actors and actresses nominated. I am a little surprised that DH1 did not have more nominations.

The one I like is Art Direction, primarily Stuart Craig.

@Want to be a Weasley. Thanks! I couldn’t remember. I knew Alan Rickman played Absolam (sp?) and Helena Bonham Carter played the Red Queen, but i couldn’t remember that one.

I know that it’s been nominated and everything… which is great don’t get me wrong. But the competition is really good and Harry Potter has this air of “just a teen fad”, which anyone who has read the books can say is not true. My point is that I really hope they win but to me it seems quite unlikely.

"Want one, Granger?" said Malfoy, holding out a badge to Hermione. "I've got loads. But don't touch my hand, now. I've just washed it, you see; I don't want a Mudblood sliming it up."
