The credits on the final instalment of the Harry Potter saga might have rolled, but the awards are still coming in. Sunday saw "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" scoop two trophies at the British Academy Children's Awards.

The wizard-filled adventure won the Feature Film prize, ahead of "Kung Fu Panda 2" and "Tangled." It also took home the BAFTA Kid's Vote, ahead of nine other competitors, including "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1".

Collecting the awards was Warwick Davis, who plays Professor Flintwick and Grimlock the goblin in the Potter films.

Warwick Davis said, "It's a huge honor just as one of the actors from these films to be up here to receive this on behalf of what is quite an amazing production team. Starting with JK Rowling of course, who created the material, through to David Yates, the director, and the producers, David Barron and David Heyman. And then the amazing cast that consisted of everyone in British acting. And also to the fans, thank you for supporting the films through the past ten years and onwards. Thank you very much."

Davis confessed that by the end of the eighth film, they'd exhausted the pool of UK talent.
