Skyfall Wins The Jameson Empire Awards

Also love for The Hobbit & Danny Boyle

Sam Mendes, Kevin Spacey

The name's Winner, Big Winner. Skyfall picked up Best Film at the Jameson Empire Award tonight in London, with director Sam Mendes also winning Best Director and a special Empire Inspiration award for good measure. The awards, voted for by the most enthusiastic film fans and most discerning cineastes in the world (that'd be you, Empire readers), also saw The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey take Best SCi-Fi/Fantasy and Best Actor for Martin Freeman, while Jennifer Lawrence was voted Best Actress for The Hunger Games.

Elsewhere, Sightseers won Best British Film and Headhunters took Best Thriller, while Best Comedy went to Ted. Hammer's The Woman In Black was Best Horror, and its star Daniel Radcliffe won an Empire Hero prize. Best Male Newcomer was The Impossible's Tom Holland, while Samantha Barks was Best Female Newcomer following her turn in Les Miserables.

Danny Boyle took our Outstanding Contribution award with typical modesty, saying that the biggest contribution he made was with that Bond-starring "Skyfall trailer" at the Olympics Opening Ceremony.

Helen Mirren, meanwhile, was dubbed an Empire Legend, while laughing that she was "more of a leg-over".

The full list of winners is below - and you can read a blow-by-blow account of the awards right over here. Check back tomorrow morning for video and more pics from the night.
