Rogue One: A Star Wars Story wins Best Film at Empire Awards

The Star Wars prequel looked like it would be the big victor after earning the most nominations, with nine, and while it didn't earn the most prizes at Empire film magazine's annual fan-voted prizegiving ceremony, it scored the most coveted, including Best Film.

British film veteran Ken Loach is on the list for best director for his hard-hitting social commentary in I, Daniel Blake.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them picked up the most awards including Best Actor going to Eddie Redmayne, as well as Best Production Design, Best Costume Design and Best Make-Up And Hairstyling.

The 36-year-old heart-throb, who has been flying around the globe with his new film Kong: Skull Island, was honoured with the Empire hero award, as screen stars Hugh Laurie, Dame Joan Collins, Sir Ian McKellen and Dan Stevens watched on.

Other winners included Deadpool for Best Screenplay, Jason Bourne for Best Thriller, A Monster Calls for Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and The Greasy Strangler for Best Comedy.

Among titles in line for best film are Arrival and La La Land, while best TV series nominations include Sherlock and The Night Manager, starring Tom Hiddleston.
