The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey wins Best SciFi/Fantasy film at Jameson Empire Awards Can't Post

Martin Freeman Jameson Empire Awards 2013Whilst most of us were busy being excited about Peter Jackson's 'sneak peek' going on live today, over in the UK our friends at Empire were busy with their very own movie awards! The Jameson Empire Awards 2013 were held tonight at the Grosvenor House Hotel, in a cold and snowy London.  These awards are voted for by movie fans themselves - and in a demonstration of the impeccable taste of fans everywhere, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was awarded Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Film. Sir Ian McKellen was there to collect the award, and he gave a shout out from the stage to his two cast mates who also attended the ceremony, Martin Freeman and Adam Brown.

Freeman soon had his own moment in the spotlight, as he beat nominees including Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln to win the award for Best Actor! In typically tongue-in-cheek style, Freeman commented, 'I always wondered if it was possible to quantify the best actor, and now I realise that it is, and it's me! What a load of old rubbish I was in with...'  He later went on to say, modest as ever, 'It's possible that my performance was not the best of the year, but I'll take it!'  What a charming chap he is; ever ready with a wink and a smile, as Empire's picture of him shows!

Empire's blog of the awards ceremony can be read here; check back to their homepage later for more pics and reports from the night, and to find out who the other winners were.  Many congratulations on their awards, to Martin Freeman and to all our friends involved with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!
