I can't believe POTTER won the two main prizes. David Yates is a f***ing moron. He only directed these as a quick way to enter the film business. I really hate him. His direction on the POTTER films was dull. Where you people smoking on high?!

Come on guys, Harry Potter? Seriously? I've nothing against it, but our one chance to recognize Drive and we give it to Harry-freakin'-Potter instead? That's an insult. Also not quite sure how Hugo didn't get best 3D, but hey ho, I'm pretty surprised by all of the results...

Lots of Potter fans block-voting as usual. Very annoying. I'm willing to bet the big winner next year will be The Hunger Games...

Why the fucking fuck did harry potter get best director- why!!! surely the guy who directed Drive should be recognised for his talents- i agree with the two other guys who commented- the results were a let down why harry potter you fucking twat- I wish you were the boy who died"!!!!!
I was rooting for Voldermort in the boring parts of your final film!! Which was a teeny bit of a let down- you fuck!!!!

I'll start by saying I don't mind that that none of the winners, other than Gary Oldman and Tom Hiddleston, where what I picked. What really stunned me was that you managed to pick some of the worst damn winners out of the nominees. It's quite clear that most ( not all by any means) of the voters were so up themselves that they felt they just had to pick as many BRITISH nominees as they could bear. Harry Potter should not have been within a mile of these awards, I think we can agree with that. And yet again DRIVE did not get a look in because most people think they are better than voting for simple yet emotionally engaging film making and acting. I think I'm right in saying that you all thought that Tinker and Potter were robbed at the Awards shows, so you did exactly what they did and voted for them based not on quality but trivial details, thereby robbing all the other nominees that actually deserved it. You are all entitled to your own choices, I just hope you all see that you aren't making them based on which film actually DESERVES an award.

I'm a massive fan of the HP books and have generally been pleased with the adaptations. However, I was thoroughly disappointed with the final film and thought it really under-played the sadness of the final book, had too many Death Eaters (too many gripes to mention). Cannot believe that it won Best Film. I don't think it's been a particularly classic year for film. Not yet seen Drive but expect that will be my film of the year. ATM I am with Planet Of The Apes! On a separate note, am I the only one who didn't enjoy The Inbetweeners film? Loved the TV show though

Considering how many people called it film of the year and voted for it I find it very odd that it lost to Potter.

Are the Empire readers even film fans anymore?! Where on earth was the love for Drive?! Loved it - the best film i've seen for years. A pretty average Harry Potter episode, and the hugely disappointing Tinker Taylor wipe the floor with it?! The world has gone mad. I honestly thought that after the joke that was this year's oscars, the injustice done to Drive would be put right. Everyone who didn't vote for it deserves to be spoon fed franchise friendly, happy meal packaged movies for the rest of their sad little lives. Then the rest of us can get on with the business of appreciating real cinema...

See you next year folks for the future joke that is the Empire Awards 2013, featuring Men in Black 3, Battleship and GI Joe 2 all battling it out for best film...Going on this year's results, just don't expect to see Prometheus or the Hobbit win anything...

I've pretty much lost faith in all awards ceremonies, except maybe the Kermode's.

Potter didn't deserve any of the spotlight for me. No Drive wins, another travesty. No Dragon Tattoo love, I'm glad Gary Oldman won something though. I don't think this award show really reinstated any of the necessary validity for the right films this year. Let's hope next year is better.

I didn't vote but I'm happy that Potter won, it was a great end to a brilliant series of films. Really glad Felicity Jones won too. I thought Drive was completely overrated.

So because you don't like something it doesn't deserve to win? Block-voting, where's the proof?

And on a separate note, Tim Burton = legend.

Always enjoyed the Empire awards due to their ability to reward movies that other ceremonies didn't, and the fact they rewarded the best movies of the year.

But seriously - Harry Potter? An exceptionally mediocre movie in a field of stand-outs (Drive got my vote!). You've obviously been hit up by a few Harry Potter fan sites, and unfortunately lost a lot of credibility as a result.

Once again, how have they lost credibility? They offered four / five films and people voted, now there's a winner.

The Harry Potter films are British, with a British cast and a British director, they've made a lot of money and brought worldwide attention to this country (in a good way.) They've made eight films over ten years, eight damn impressive films from difficult source material. Sounds like a worthy winner to me.
