  JK Rowling wins top movie award
Updated 27 October 2004, 18.01
JK Rowling
JK Rowling has won a top award. She's won the Variety UK personality prize at the British Independent Film Awards, for her contribution to movies.

A spokesperson for JK told CBBC Newsround that she was sure the author would be "delighted".

As well as writing the Potter books, JK has always worked closely with the production team of the Potter films.

Award bosses said her books had led to the UK's film community playing a huge part in the Potter movie phenomenon.

The organisers said: "To celebrate Rowling is to also celebrate the vitality of this magic-making community."

The awards ceremony will be held on 30 November in London. It's not yet known if JK Rowling, who is due to give birth to her third child early next year, will be attending.
