The Acceptance Speech
(Christopher Nolan on tape from LA): "Thank you very much. I'm sorry I can't be there this evening, I really wish I could but this is a great honour. Thank you very much to all the readers of Empire magazine and everyone who voted. When you make a film like The Dark Knight on a grand scale you really hope it reaches a lot of people and Empire magazine and its readers really represent a very excellent demonstration of how that film got out there and its audience. We're thrilled with the reception and this is really a great honour so thank you very much."
