Ron Howard | Empire Inspiration | Jameson Empire Awards 2012
Ron Howard

What we said...  "Howard comes up trumps, managing to keep the domestic drama pretty much in check, never losing sight of the gripping story unfolding in space." Read Empire's Apollo 13 review

"One of the key elements of Morgan’s play was the birth of the TV close-up — that the camera can divine the truth even as words tie knots — and Howard lets his camera become a participant, closing in on its quarry. It’s something that elevates the movie far above the stage-play — we can see their faces." Read Empire's Frost/Nixon review

"Like Howard’s Apollo 13, this pugilistic powerhouse is a beautifully modulated showcase for the director’s ability to take a yarn where the outcome is a given and spin the inevitable into dramatic gold." Read Empire's Cinderella Man review

Watch Ron Howard's acceptance speech - Coming shortly...
