Jameson Empire Awards 2014: The Winners

Schwarzenegger! Cruise! McAvoy! Jackman! More!

Tom Cruise and Roasmund Pike at the Jameson Empire Awards 2014

The gongs have been handed over, the speeches have been given and host James Nesbitt has wrapped up the ceremony. Yes, the Jameson Empire Awards are, as we write this slowly winding down except for a few diehard party animals still keeping the flame alive. It was indeed a night to remember, even if some of the participants may not be able to do so. To jog any foggy memories, then, a quick listing of the winners from Sunday night.

To say that this was our biggest Awards ever is an understatement. We had Tom Cruise, Hugh Jackman, Simon Pegg, Paul Greengrass, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emma Thompson and a wealth of other talent from across the film and telly spectrum in the room. Well-deserved awards went to the likes of Sally Hawkins, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, and even though he probably needs to build an extension to hold his awards haul, Alfonso Cuarón won two, accepting via video message and through his effects cohort Neil Corbould.

Here is the full list of all last night's winners.
