VIDEO ACCEPTANCE SPEECH
Thank you, thank you. Thank you very, very much for this award. I'm so sorry that I can't be there, it always seems so weird to do these taped things when I would much rather be there in that room with all of you having a wonderful time and enjoying a drink. Thank you to Empire Magazine and the readers. I know it's the 10th anniversary of the awards this year so just congratulations on doing so well and keeping going and staying true to movies because they are important and I just feel so blessed to be a part of this crazy business. This award really means so much to me. Eternal Sunshine was so much fun to shoot and so hard at the same time. And I would like to acknowledge the other cast members and Michel Gondry, who directed this film. It really was a team effort and none of this would have happened really and the film wouldn't have become this great thing that it has. And I think it's so cool and this is so cool and thank you and have a drink on me. Goodbye.

WHAT EMPIRE SAID
Once Joels subconscious decides that the procedure is a bad idea and enlists the memory of Clementine (Winslet at her most winning) in a daring escape plan, the movie picks up pace and starts to explore comic areas teenage humiliation, suppressed trauma that play to Carreys obvious strengths and best showcase the undoubted visual verve of Gondry.
