Empire Awards: The Horror! The Horror!

Thought the awards season was over? Well yesterday Empire Magazine held their own awards ceremony and the results are mostly horrible.

Avatar won both best film and best director with Zoe Saldana picking up best actress. Another major mistake was Sherlock Holmes winning Best Thriller. Without getting into a debate about what constitutes a thriller I dispute Holmes being a better film than Inglourious Basterds.

On the plus side In The Loop finally won something as it acheived Best Comedy beating out a four more successful, but less brilliant films. Sadly Moon and District 9 were again overlooked in favour of the more flashy Star Trek, at least Cameron didn’t get this one. The full list of winners can be seen here.

What happened Empire? You used to be cool man!

It makes me wonder when the Mild Concern awards are.
