It was announced in December that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was on the long-list for movies being considered as potential nominees for the 82nd annual Academy Awards' Achievement in Visual Effects category. The list has been thus shortened to seven today, and Half-Blood Prince has made the cut yet again.

Fifteen minutes of each of the seven movies being considered - Half-Blood Prince, Avatar, 2012, District 9, Terminator Salvation, Star Trek, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - will be shown to Academy members, who will pick their favourites, thereby narrowing the list down to the final three nominees. The awards will be given out on Sunday, March 7, 2010.

Nominees will be announced Tuesday, February 2, 2010, at 5:30 a.m. PST. We will announce Half-Blood Prince's nomination if the film gets recognised for its achievement in VFX, so stay tuned.

Half-Blood Prince has been longlisted for nomination consideration for 7 BAFTA awards in the categories of; Make-Up & Hair, Special Visual Effects, Sound, Costume Design, Production Design, Cinematography and Supporting Actor (Alan Rickman as Severus Snape).

Nominations will be announced January 21st, when the finalists will be narrowed down from fifteen to five. The awards ceremony will take place at the Royal Opera House in London, England on February 21st.
