THE ACCEPTANCE SPEECH
Simon Pegg: Thank you very much indeed, this is wonderful. Thank you very much to Working Title for getting the film made. Thanks to my pimp. To everyone who worked on the film, to all our zombies that came along and did their stumbling for free. To everyone here I'm slightly overwhelmed Edgar?
Edgar Wright: I'd like to thank obviously the Empire readers
Simon Pegg: Yes, Empire readers, thanks!
Edgar Wright: It's very nice, I've got every single issue of Empire except number one, though I did read it in WH Smith. So, I didn't have quite the foresight to buy it at the time. Sorry about that but thank you for this award.

WHAT EMPIRE SAID
A surprisingly good TV transfer for the Spaced crew. It may not exactly be Ealing, but its funny for long stretches. Even when in danger of self-destructing, it cadges laughs with smart lines, silly observations or blokish inside jokes about zombie movies, video games and pub nibbles.

ALSO NOMINATED
Enduring Love
Dead Man's Shoes
Layer Cake
Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason
