'Skyfall' wins big at Empire Film Awards

Mar 24 2013, 6:26pm CDT | by

'Skyfall' and Sam Mendes were the big winners at the Jameson Empire Film Awards in London on Sunday (24.03.13).

The latest James Bond movie - which led the nominations and was recently crowned the highest-grossing film in British box office history - won Best Film and its director Sam won Best Director as well as the Empire Inspiration Award.

'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' star Martin Freeman won the Jameson Best Actor gong, while Jennifer Lawrence, 22, was named Best Actress for her portrayal of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games'.

The modest 41-year-old British actor admitted he was surprised to come out on top in the public vote ahead of Daniel Craig, Robert Downey Jr., Daniel Day-Lewis and Christoph Waltz in the prestigious category.

He said: "It's possible that my performance was not the best of the year, but I'll take it."

The adventure movie also won the Best Science-Fiction/Fantasy award.

Dame Helen Mirren, 67, was named Empire Legend at the ceremony in the Grosvenor House Hotel.

Accepting the accolade, she said: "I feel more of a leg-over than a legend. I have been more in my career."

Daniel Radcliffe was awarded Empire Hero.

Other big winners included the movie 'Ted', which was named Best Comedy, while newly single director Danny Boyle was honored with the Empire Outstanding Contribution award.

Comic-Con: ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ And Oh Yeah, ‘Ant-Man,’ I Guess

Jul 28 2014 10:42am CDT | Source: The Superficial

Considering they have no less than 20 movies coming out at a time, Marvel gets the prime time-slot in Comic-Con‘s Hall H where this year they wheeled out the entire cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron – minus pregnant ScarJo – after an awkwardly brief Ant-Man panel. And if you’re wondering how to tell the two apart in the gallery, one has people sitting there with no clue what they’re doing because the director quit and they stil ...

Jeff Bridges' Best AMA Answers: On 'The Big Lebowski,' 'Iron Man,' Bagels and Love

Jul 25 2014 2:42pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Reddit AMAs with actors can be a mixed bag: The quick-response format can reveal some satisfying answers, but leave you desperate for a follow-up answer that never comes. And sometimes the subject does not play ball at all, failing to give even the illusion of caring. (Witness the great Woody Harrelson AMA debacle of 2012.) But it is rare that you get a session as rewarding as yesterday’s back and forth with Jeff Bridges, there to promote his upcomi ...
