J.K. Rowling and Peter Mullan nominated for Spirit of Scotland awards!

J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter actor Peter Mullan, who portrayed Yaxley in the films, have been nominated for the 2013 Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland awards.

The Spirit of Scotland honor celebrates native Scottish people in multiple categories. Both have won the award before, Rowling in 2001 in the Top Scot category and Mullan in 1999 in the Film category. This year, Rowling has been nominated in the Writing category and Peter in Screen. The winners will be announced later this year.

Congratulations to you both on your nominations!

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
