|Empire Awards Are the Best|
|I am from the United States and I agree with the Empire readership about the winners. My favorite TV shows, movie, and music are from the UK. I plan to subscribe to your magazine. I hate Hollywood blockbuster movies with a passion. I am so glad James McAvoy won Best Actor. He is so talented and deserves to win. I was really upset about Joe Wright gettting snubbed at the Oscars. They are a joke anyway. Atonement is by far my favorite drama movie. I am also glad that "Hot Fuzz" won be More|

|Titanic? With the paper boat?!|
|Those guys must have a lot of friends, cos they sure didn't have the best film.
Speed was awesome and should definitely have won - and Dambusters should have been a finalist. More|

| RE: Who reads Empire then????|
| Rob Brydon this time round.
I have to say the way the awards were presented were a bit strange. Showing the films/actors up for the said award and then having the person to read out the winner get up out of their seat and move through the crowd.

|Seriously who reads Empire nowadays if these are the winners that have been voted for? Best acting awards to Atonement? Best directing for Harry Potter?
I'm waiting to be told this is all some sick joke being played on me More|

| RE: Get your own opinion!|
| C'mon 'hughjass', we all know that "Ikea Knightley" is Mark Kermode's phrase which is only funny when he says it and isn't even true. I'll admit that many things she does are rubbish, but she can act when properly directed, as Joe Wright has showed us twice now. More|

|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! More|

|Not released in '07: disqualified! - fit with the awards season!|
|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 . More|

|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? More|
