Empire Awards Shortlist

The shortlist is in for The Jameson Empire Awards and you can now cast your vote until Friday. Here is a run down of the nominees with our picks and a link to the voting site:



BEST MALE NEWCOMER

John Boyega (Attack The Block)

Asa Butterfield (Hugo)

Sam Claflin (Pirates Of The Caribbean 4)

Tom Hiddleston (Thor)

Jeremy Irvine (War Horse)

Craig Roberts (Submarine)


And the Amateur review vote goes to Tom Hiddleston for his performance in Thor. We also loved him in War Horse and after missing out on the BAFTA Rising Star this only seems fair!






BEST FEMALE NEWCOMER

Celine Buckens (War Horse)

Elle Fanning (Super 8)

Laura Haddock (The Inbetweeners Movie)

Felicity Jones (Like Crazy)

Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit)

Bonnie Wright (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows- Part 2)



Hailee Steinfeld has walked this category for us! Her courageous performance in True Grit was impressive given her young age - looking forward to seeing her in Romeo and Juliet.




BEST COMEDY

Attack The Block

Bridesmaids

Crazy Stupid Love

The Inbetweeners Movie

Midnight In Paris


The vote has to go to Woody Allen’s quirky rom-com set in the most beautiful city in the world. Owen Wilson provides some genuinely funny moments – well worth a watch.




BEST HORROR

Attack The Block

Insidious

Kill List

Paranormal Activity 3

Troll Hunter

It's gotta be Paranormal Activity - terrifying!





BEST THRILLER

Drive

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Hanna

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy


The toughest category in my opinion as Dragon Tattoo and TTSS have been two of the best films of recent years, however our loyalty remains with the British bunch – the Cold War spies all the way!





BEST SCI-FI/FANTASY

Captain America: The First Avenger

Rise of The Planet Of The Apes

Super 8

Thor

X-Men: First Class


The X-Men have it I’m afraid. Although I will say that James McAvoy is NEVER a young Professor X – with or without the hair!





THE ART OF 3D

The Adventures of Tintin

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows – Part 2

Hugo

Thor

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon


Supporting the Brits again! The final instalment of Harry Potter did unbelievable justice to the books of a generation. Sheer class.





JAMESON BEST ACTOR
Daniel Craig (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo)

Ryan Gosling (Drive)

Gary Oldman (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy)

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows- Part 2)

Andy Serkis (Rise Of the Planet Of The Apes)


Hard choice! But it has to be Gary Oldman – anyone who said he couldn’t give Alec Guiness as run for his money was wrong – Gary was George Smiley.





BEST ACTRESS

Olivia Colman (Tyrannosaur)

Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo)

Carey Mulligan (Drive)

Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady)

Michelle Williams (My Week With Marilyn)


A career defining performance for Rooney Mara. The transformation she went through to play Lisbeth was quite phenomenal.





BEST DIRECTOR

Tomas Alfredson (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy)

Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive)

Steven Spielberg (War Horse)

Rupert Wyatt (Rise of The Planet Of The Apes)

David Yates (harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows – Part 2)


Well done Tomas Alfredson, your espionage thriller was quietly brilliant. You showed the world spies don’t need to be like James Bond!





BEST BRITISH FILM

Attack The Block

The Inbetweeners Movie

Submarine

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Tyrannosaur


I needn’t bother – but Tinker Tailor by a mile…





BEST FILM

Drive

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows – Part 2

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy


All fantastic films… however no real surprise where the Amateur Review's allegiance lies!
