'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows - Part 2' won the top prize at the Empire Awards 2012 last night (25.03.12).
The final instalment of the wizard franchise took home Best Film and Best Director for David Yates at the event at London's Grosvenor House Hotel, which saw 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' pick up a trio of accolades.
Gary Oldman beat off completion from Daniel Craig, Ryan Gosling, Daniel Radcliffe and Andy Serkis to scoop the Best Actor prize for his role as espionage veteran George Smiley in the movie, which was awarded Best British Film and Best Thriller.
British movies continued to dominate the night with 'The Inbetweeners' taking home Best Comedy and Olivia Colman winning Best Actress for her breakthrough performance in 2011 motion picture 'Tyrannosaur', while Tom Hiddleston and Felicity Jones were presented with Best Newcomer prizes for 'Thor' and 'Like Crazy' respectively.
Mark Dinning, Empire magazine's editor, said: ''British movies have ruled the world in the past year, and we are delighted to see them rule the roost here tonight, too.
''The readers of Empire are the smartest academy out there and this year they have picked the very best winners from a terrific 12 months. With the Olympics and Euro 2012 just around the corner, our homegrown movie heroes have tonight kicked off a year we hope is packed with British triumph.''
