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.

The AWFJ have obviously had a lot of fun with their Actress Most In Need Of A New Agent and Hall Of Shame categories, but aside from that their choices aren’t particularly exciting (although they have opted for both Rickman and Serkis in the Best Supporting slot). Sacrilege occurs further down when naming Drive as a Movie You Wanted To Love But Just Couldn’t, but the Most Egregious Age Difference category is rather amusing. Check out these rather unconventional nominations below: Continue reading
