Thank Fuck for the Empire Film Awards. For once an awards ceremony that does justice to the medium. Considering only film buffs really read it, i think its a true representation of what ARE the best films, before the whole eurovision-style media politics kicks in.
I’m especially pleased about:
Shaun of the Dead winning Best British Film
Kate Winslet winning best British Actress for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Kevin Smith winning the Independant Award
The Balloon Scene in Enduring Love winning best scene
Quentin Tarrantino winning Icon of a Decade
you can listen to all the speeches online!
