On occasion, we've been known to mouth off. For years, literally years, we've been whinging that no formal film body recognises the Potter films and their contribution to cinema. Sure, they're nothing like Amelie or even Oscar favourites such as The Hurt Locker or A Single Man, but they're funny, beautifully shot, emotionally resonant, and rarely over the top: a mean feat in films where most of the lead characters wear wizard robes 70% of the time. 

At last, Potter & Co are being honoured with a BAFTA for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema. 

Click through to BBC news to see series Producer David Heyman express what can most accurately be described as heartfelt gratitude for the last 14 years of his life. 

Hear hear!
