'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.

Aug 28 2014 12:34pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Going back to 2008, Robert Downey Jr. has been the face of the Marvel Studios franchise. It was his performance as Tony Stark in Jon Favreau's Iron Man that lit the powder keg that wound up becoming the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he has been a key player and figure ever since. As important as both Downey Jr. and Iron Man have been to the success of Marvel, however, the actor will now admit that it's actually not one of his movies that represents the bes ...

By now, I’m sure all of the Dragonflies have seen this and already collapsed into a damp dragonfly pile. But for the rest of you, Tom Hiddleston accepted Nathan Fillion’s “nomination” to do the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money and awareness for ALS (although Tommy is a little dyslexic so he hashtagged #ASL – American Sign Language, huzzah!). Yesterday, Tommy joined Chris Pratt, Robert Downey Jr. and others by taping h ...
