empireaward300x210Now that all the hoo-ha of the BAFTA’s has died down and while we’re waiting patiently for the Oscars, we can still get a movie award fix with the Jameson Empire Awards.

Aside from the usual prizes being doled out, Empire also like to pick out the best genre films of the season including thriller, comedy and sci-fi/fantasy movies.

They also do something a little different to the BAFTAs and Oscars which is that they look at short movies that the general public have made. Wondered what Jerry Maguire would like if it was only a minute long? Click here and you’ll see last year’s winning entry in the ‘Done In 60 Seconds’ category.

We looked at some videos earlier this week too in our own Guide To Movies In A Minute.

Unlike the bigger award ceremonies, you can vote for the winners over at the official Empire site. Here’s a rundown of the nominees:
