A few updates from MuggleNet...

- Ralph Fiennes, the actor who plays Lord Voldemort in the Potter films, has revealed in an interview with Ain't It Cool News that he won't be appearing in the sixth film. When asked about if he is signed for Deathly Hallows, he says "not yet."
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO REMUS LUPIN!! (according to JK Rowlings Website)

First appearance in the story: This (compartment) only had one occupant, a man sitting fast asleep next to the window... The stranger was wearing an extremely shabby set of wizard's robes which looked ill and exhausted. Though he seemed quite young, his light brown hair was flecked with grey."Who'd you reckon he is?" Ron hissed..."Professor R.J. Lupin," whispered Hermione at once.

Emma Watson was nominated for Best Actress, Dan Radcliffe for Best Actor, David Yates for Best Director, Nicholas Hooper (who composed the fifth film's soundtrack) for Best Soundtrack, and OOTP itself for Best Film and Best Sci-fi/Fantasy at the Empire awards.
Congratulations to David Yates who earned the Best Director award for his work on Order of the Phoenix.
