On hosting this year’s awards, Nesbitt comments, “Last year’s Jameson Empire Awards were an incredible experience. Hollywood legends like Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emma Thompson were rubbing shoulders with the next generation of acting talent and the atmosphere was electric. They really do celebrate the true voice of the movie-going public and I’m looking forward to March 29!”

Commenting on this year’s shortlist, Empire’s Editor-In-Chief, Morgan Rees, adds, “The Jameson Empire Awards 2015, powered by the savviest film-loving readership on the planet, are a huge celebration of the best cinema has to offer. 2014 gave us films that tackle the big questions of the universe and movies about walking trees and talking bears. It promises to be a fantastic night.”
