I hope that HP films win some award, especially when the series as a whole is completed. Some awards now would be great too! If you haven’t seen the King’s Speech, go! It has some amazing acting, and the story is very moving. Check up a bit on the history first, as it will make the film more enjoyable. Timothy Spall plays Churchill, and although you don’t see him for very long in the movie, he is very good indeed.

This film won’t win the awards. The special effects and art direction weren’t as grand as with films like Alice in Wonderland. I think the next one will get much more attention and probably deserve it.
I’m just happy it wasn’t nominated for razzies like Eclipse. At the razzies they love tackling populair franchises. That they didn’t nominate an easy target like DH1, proves what a great film it was.

Actually, I think Helena Bonham Carter’s role as Bellatrix LeStrange was a bigger stretch than her portrayal as Queen Elizabeth. She is really good in everything I’ve seen her do.
