Tom Cruise is a Legend and Michael Fassbender is Supportive at The Empire Movie Awards
Tom Cruise gets legendary status

The Jameson Empire Awards are a slightly strange affair, mainly because they're actually an accurate representation of what actual humans like rather than the politics and gladhanding of some more high profile awards.

[cough - Oscars - cough]

That populist attitude is reflected in the fact that the massive galaxy of stars showed up for the awards ceremony this year including the likes ofArnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Cruise and Hugh Jackman who were all there to pick up special achivement awards for being legends in their own right. And they gave awesome speeches, including Arnie talking about not ever listening to people who tell you you can't do something.

Voted for by the public, by real movie fans, the regular film awards were also refreshingly realistic. Gravity won a couple of big gongs and The Conjuring deservedly got Best Horror. James McAvoy finally gets some recognition for his blistering role in Filth and Michael Fassbender gets Best Supporting for 12 Years a Slave.

Check out the full list here.
