Jude Legislation has been nominated in Greatest Actor class of the Nationwide Movie Awards for his position as Albus Dumbledore, ginger wizard extraordinaire, in Unbelievable Beasts: The Secrets and techniques of Dumbledore.

He has been nominated within the Greatest Supporting Actor class and the collection has been tipped for the Greatest TV Drama Sequence class.
Another actors who appeared within the Harry Potter movies acquired nominations for his or her work in films which can be unrelated to the Potter franchise: For instance, Ciarán Hinds, who performed Aberforth Dumbledore, Albus’s youthful brother, goat charmer, and proprietor of the Hogs Head Inn & Pub, in Deathly Hallows Half 2, was nominated within the Greatest Supporting Actor class for his position in Belfast, a movie by Gilderoy Lockhart. Erm, we imply a movie by Kenneth Branagh, who performed that narcissistic wizard in Chamber of Secrets and techniques. Belfast relies on Branagh’s childhood in Northern Eire throughout the euphemistically-nicknamed “troubles” within the late 60s/early 70s. By the way, Hinds can also be a Belfast Native.
Different Potter actors amongst the nominees embrace Professor Horace Slughorn, in his Muggle guise as actor Jim Broadbent, within the class of World Contribution to Movement Photos, which appears like some kind of life-time achievement award, for his efficiency in The Duke, a movie a couple of taxi driver who steals a portray to ransom it for higher social companies from the federal government, a kind of modern-day Robin Hood escapade. The Duke has additionally been nominated for Greatest Comedy. Right here is the trailer, which is delightfully cheeky in a veddy British humour method:
Almost Headless Nick’s alter ego, John Cleese, is competing in opposition to Broadbent within the World Contribution to Movement Photos and Greatest Comedy classes for Father Christmas Is Again. Um, doesn’t he come again yearly, not like Sir Nicolas, who by no means left?
David Tennant, a perennial award winner, has been nominated for Greatest Actor in a TV Sequence for his work in Across the World in 80 Days. This collection can also be up for a Greatest Motion in a Movie/Sequence award. I’m wondering if he needed to take Polyjuice potion for his position or in the event that they did his wardrobe, hair, and make-up within the typical Muggle method?
Lastly, combining the Potter/Beasts movie worlds, Draco Malfoy’s doppelgänger Tom Felton and Samantha Morton, who performed dour anti-magic puritan Mary Lou Barebone each acquired nominations for his or her roles in Save the Cinema. Felton is up for Greatest Supporting Actor and Morton has been nominated for Greatest Actress. Save the Cinema (sure, please do!) has additionally been tipped within the Greatest Drama class.
