I agree with most of the winners, with the exeption of soundtrack going to Control instead of Hairspray, and David Yates winning Best Director.

Well it seems the public are just as clueless as the academy and The Assassination of Jesse James gets a grand total of nothing.

Glad to see Atonement getting something for once.

Glad to see James McAvoy getting recognition. Woop woop for that. Regards to the soundtrack I agree with film_fan. And also...Stardust as best sci-fi?
Last but not least HURRAH for Bourne winning Best Film

Are you really serious? Almost half of the winners were completely wrong! How could the Bourne Ultimatum be the Best Film, but not the Best Thriller? How it should have gone was for Jesse James to win Best Film and for Bourne to get the Thriller award. Another thing, every other soundtrack on the list was better than Control's, Saoirse Ronan was by far the Best Newcomer and in fairness, David Yates? I ask you. Will Joe Wright ever get any recognition?

Very pleased with 28 weeks later and bourne and very very pleased with Stardust, at last recognition. American Gangster: NOOO! and also not sure about the Icon, but again, we voted for this, so must be some truth in here. Again: Stardust jeej!

good over all, although American Gangster? Really? There were FAR superior films out there, it only won thanks to you star fuckers out there thinking if you vote for a Ridley Scott film staring Washington and Crowe they'll come round and blow you! Good to see McAvoy getting some recognition at last.

I assume that a lot of the films that dominated the awards season didn't count on this list because they weren't released in the UK in 2007 - if that's the case, why don't Empire move their awards show to January, so it doesn't seem to neglect the oscar-lauded films? It just seems wrong that in one of the best years for cinema, a lot of the great films aren't included. We all know they're not going to make the cut for next year's awardshow when everyone's forgotten about them .

WHAT THE?! I'm sorry but that is all wrong, why on earth should Keria Knightley win best actress and Sam Riley as best newcomer? I voted for Shia Labeouf and Cate Blanclett, they are the best and why on earth is the Bourne movie win best film?! Bad pickings, I have to say. If it went my way, everyone would agree. Someone must have bad taste!

This just shows that just because you read a film magazine doesn't mean you have any taste, or know anything about film. People who voted for anything to do with Atonement, American Gangster, Stardust and Harry Potter - Shame on you!!
