Harry Potter wins a ShockWaves NME Award

The wizard picks up the Best Film gong

Jarvis Cocker was on hand at the ShockWaves NME Awards 2006 to pick up the award for Best Film.

This year’s Best Film award goes to ‘Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire’.

Cocker, who makes a cameo appearance as a musician in the film, made a rare public appearance in London.


The film is the fourth in the Harry Potter series, and beat off competition from ‘Batman Begins’, ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’, ‘King Kong’ and ‘Sin City’.

Cocker, who proclaimed himself “magic”, was given the award by last year’s ShockWaves NME Awards presenters Nick Frost and Simon Pegg.

Carl Barat‘s new band Dirty Pretty Things have now played, while Sugababes have performed a cover of Arctic Monkeys‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’.
