"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" was named the First Light Film of the Decade, it was announced this afternoon at the First Light Awards in London.

The First Light Film of the Decade was voted on by the public, in association with the BAFTA Kids' Vote. "Prisoner of Azkaban" was up against films such as "Shrek," "Whale Rider," "Happy Feet," and "Up."

Actress Clemence Poesy (Fleur Delacour) was in attendance at the ceremony in London. Photos of her can be seen via Getty Images.

Update: The BBC reported that Ms Poesy presented the award to producer David Heyman at the ceremony. In his acceptance speech, he is quoted as saying:

"It's especially exciting and moving to be voted Film of the Decade by children aged five to 15.
"We made the film for children of all ages to 105 really, but clearly a core part of our audience is young people and to be honoured is a privilege."

Excellent that HP got the win for the decade!

That said, er…better choice of HP movies perhaps? One with at least the same characters as the books?

I loved DH1, but POA is still my favorite HP film. I expect it always will be.
