The Dark Knight Rises Anne Hathaway and The Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence Face Off for an Empire
Oscar-winners Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence go head-to-head for their roles in different films from their recent awards success - 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'The Hunger Games' respectively to compete for the 'Best Actress' Empire Award at the Jameson Empire Film Awards nominations, held later this month.
Meanwhile 'Skyfall' leads the way in nominations, scooping up a half-dozen.
The latest James Bond installment - which was recently crowned the highest-grossing film in British box office history - has scored an impressive six nominations for Best Thriller, Best British Film, Best Director (Sam Mendes), Jameson Best Actor (Daniel Craig), Best Actress (Dame Judi Dench) and Best Film.
Daniel will face stiff competition in the public vote from fellow leading men Robert Downey Jr., Martin Freeman, Daniel Day-Lewis and Christoph Waltz in the Jameson Best Actor category.
For the aforementioned 'Best Actress' category, Anne and Jennifer will compete against Dame Judi Dench ('Skyfall'), Golden Globe-winner Jessica Chastain ('Zero Dark Thirty') and Naomi Watts ('The Impossible').
Meanwhile, blockbusters 'Avengers Assemble' and 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' are up for five categories including Best Science-Fiction, The Art Of 3D, Best Director and Best Film.
Independent British flick 'Sightseers' has four nominations, namely one each for actors and co-writers Steve Oram and Alice Lowe in the Best Male and Female Newcomer categories.
The nominations line-up - chosen solely by the cinemagoing public - also feature movies from the last year which were not recognised in the industry-voted awards season, including box-office hits 'The Woman in Black', 'Dredd 3D' and 'Looper'.
