Jameson Empire Awards: The Winners

Best Male Newcomer 

Domhnall Gleeson (Anna Karenina)
Rafe Spall (Life Of Pi)
Steve Oram (Sightseers)
Suraj Sharma (Life Of Pi)
WINNER Tom Holland (The Impossible)

Extremely worthy winner, I had voted for him after the short list was released in that post.

Best Female Newcomer

Alice Lowe (Sightseers)
Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina)
Holliday Grainger (Great Expectations)
Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts Of The Southern Wild)
WINNER Samantha Barks (Les Miserables)

Two out of two so far, as predicted!

Best Comedy 

21 Jump Street
Moonrise Kingdom 
WINNER Ted
The Pirates! In an Adventure With Scientists 
Silver Linings Playbook 

There's no disputing Ted was hilarious. Maybe 21 Jump Street was funnier...




Best Horror 

WINNER The Woman In Black 
The Cabin In The Woods 
Sinister 
Sightseers 
Dark Shadows

Happy this won, this was my pick for the category 




Best Thriller

Argo 
Skyfall
Zero Dark Thirty 
The Raid 
WINNER Jo Nesbo's Headhunters

Definitely a tough category, I had chosen Argo for this - Headhunters definitely bucks the previous award season trend.


Best Sci-FI/Fantasy 

Prometheus 
Looper 
Avengers Assemble 
Dredd 3D 
WINNER The Hobbit

I had chosen Avengers for this nod, but The Hobbit makes for a very worthy winner 

The Art Of 3D

Avengers Assemble 
WINNER Dredd 3D
Life Of Pi
Prometheus 
The Hobbit

Had predicted the Hobbit, but there wasn't much in it 

Jameson Best Actor

Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained)
Daniel Craig (Skyfall)
Daniel Day Lewis (Lincoln)
WINNER Martin Freeman (The Hobbit)
Robert Downey Jr. (Avengers Assemble)

I threatened to eat my hat if Daniel Day-Lewis didn't win. I'll let you know how it tastes...


Best Actress

Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises)
Naomi Watts (The Impossible)
Dame Judi Dench (Skyfall)
Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty)
WINNER Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games)

Thought Watts deserved this, but happy to see J-Law's winning streak continue. 


Best Director 

Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises)
Joss Whedon (Avengers Assemble)
WINNING Sam Mendes (Skyfall)
Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained)
Peter Jackson (The Hobbit)

Unsurprisingly I had wanted this one to go to Nolan, but Mendes is definitely a hugely talented director, no qualms here.



Best British Film 

Dredd 3D
Les Miserables 
WINNER Sightseers 
Skyfall 
The Woman In Black

Bit of a curve ball don't you think? Over Les Mis and Skyfall though, really?!


Best Film 

Django Unchained
Avengers Assemble
WINNER Skyfall
The Dark Knight Rises
The Hobbit 

I wanted The Dark Knight Rises, but it sort of had to be Skyfall didn't it?

Check out Amateur Review's prediction post and also the Red Carpet post still to come.
