Kick-Ass and Chloe Moretz awarded by Empire

Last night’s Empire Magazine annual awards saw Chloe Moretz receive the Best Newcomer award for her role as Hit-Girl in Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass, Kick-Ass itself scooped best British film and Chris Morris’ brilliant satire Four Lions pick up best comedy.

Elsewhere Inception bagged Best Film and Keira Knightley walked away with the patronisingly titled ‘Hero Award’. Answers in the comments section if anyone knows what this dubious prize is actually awarded for; apparently Jude Law won it last year…
