Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars: The Force Awakens lead the nominations for this year’s Jameson Empire Awards.

Picking up 10 and 9 nominations respectively, both films look set to pick up a handful of awards each at this year’s ceremony in March. The Martian follows with six nominations and The Revenant picked up five.

The public will continue to cast their votes at www.empireonline.com/awards2016 ahead of next month’s ceremony.

Commenting on this year’s shortlist, Empire’s Editor-In-Chief, Terri White, concludes: “2015 was an absolutely cracking year for film and entertainment, evidenced by the strength of the actors, filmmakers, movies and TV shows fighting it out for gongs this year. With Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars: The Force Awakens going head to head with awards favourite so far The Revenant, I can’t wait to see who walks away with the Empire trophies on the night. It’d take a braver woman than me to bet against any of them.”
