'Harry Potter' Cast Honored at the BAFTA Awards

After a long and successful ten year run, British cinema awarded the cast and crew of 'Harry Potter'.  Producer David Heyman and J.K Rowling accepted the award onstage with Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson.  They were later joined by Producer David Barron, and by Directors Alfonso Cuaron ('The Prisoner of Azkaban'), Mike Newell ('Goblet of Fire'), and David Yates ('Order of the Phoenix' 'Half-Blood Prince' and 'The Deathly Hallows pt 1 and 2').


Although 'Deathly Hallows' didn't win in either of its categories, fan favorite Helena Bonham Carter did win the award for Supporting Actress for 'The King's Speech'.


I really appreciate the BAFTA Awards for actually holding 'Harry Potter' on a pedestal and understanding what the series has done for the film industry.  American awards, like the Oscars, refuse to admit that 'Harry Potter' even exists, and what makes it even more sad, is that after ten years, 'Harry Potter' still hasn't won an Oscar.  I can only hope that the Oscars will let 'Harry Potter' have its moment to shine once 'Deathly Hallows Part 2' is released, and nominate for awards it deserves.  It shouldn't matter that it was based on a children's book, or that it's an all British cast (let's be honest, thats what makes Harry Potter, Harry Potter).  Even if the Oscar's refuse to give 'Harry Potter' the praise it deserves, we can always count on the BAFTAs to give awards to the rightful winners, not just films that deserve it for political reasons.  For Example: 'Shakespeare in Love' wins the Oscar for Best Picture over 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Chicago' beats 'Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers'.


Here are some pictures of the amazing and flawless cast and crew of 'Harry Potter'. 







Do you think the Oscar's are snubbing 'Harry Potter'?  Or do you think that 'Harry Potter' may pick up Oscar votes for 'Deathly Hallow Part 2'?

I love that they got this award and I almost got a little teary, I love that they are getting the praise that they deserve. and the jibe at Twilight at the end was awesome!
and Emma's hair is terrible, kim you are a crazy person, and do you really have someone from the hills as your icon? this is a science fiction blog, and i realize that the hills is fiction but if they ever put any science on that show they would probably mess up their lines because their too stupid to understand

haha, that is extremely true about the Hill's! I promise you'll never see a post on here about that show! And I agree, its about time someone give Harry Potter an award. We know how much the Oscars appreciates them....
