2012 Jameson Empire Film Awards – Nominations

Well, the people have spoken (the readers of Empire, that is) and chosen who they think worthy of making the shortlist for the 2012 Jameson Empire Awards. I have to be honest and say I’m more than a little surprised at the inclusion of Sam Claflin (after he was so fabulous in Any Human Heart) and Bonnie Wright (is she technically a newcomer after eight Potter movies?!), as well as Troll Hunter being considered a horror, but the lines have to blur somewhere I guess.

What the Empire Awards have the ability to do is nominate a massive mixture of films, allowing far more mainstream flicks the opportunity to walk away with the prizes. This is also clearly evident when noticing how The Artist and The Descendants are nowhere to be seen (because they were ineligible due to UK release dates, to be fair!), but Harry Potter, Attack The Block and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes are the clear frontrunners.

  1. Well Elle Fanning isn’t a newcomer either and last year Chloe Moretz won for that category and also isn’t a newcomer when she won either. So the name doesn’t quiet fit. A more fitting title for that category is newcomer/up and coming actor/actress.

    • It’s a tough category and obviously really relates to their mainstream, breakout roles. It’s like Tom Hardy winning the Rising Star Award at the BAFTAs last year. All about the public consciousness, unfortunately!

  2. Yeah pretty much. lol sighs
