I had a smashing time and saw lots of people off of the films and that, but professionalism and very strict rules prevented me from photographing any of them. Therefore, in an attempt to convey the excitement of the evening in blogular format, I'm just going to have to resort to a few images I've scraped off the bottom of the internet and a bit of lacklustre photoshopping.
Here, then, are just some of the sights I witnessed at the Jameson Empire Jameson Awards Jameson 2012 sponsored by Jameson, almost exactly as they happened:
Dexter Fletcher and Tim Burton at the same event
A well-known TV personality having a serious-looking conversation with a well-known actress
Danny DeVito making a big job out of putting his glasses on to get a better look at me
The back of Alex Zane as I wandered into the background of one of his Sky Movies reports
A lady with enormous breasts
The same well-known TV personality having another serious-looking conversation, this time with a well-known film directorFor all I know they were talking about the lady with enormous breasts, but maybe - just maybe - they were "in talks" to collaborate on the world's most amazing film or TV show ever. Because believe me it would be off the flipping chain.
Chris Hemsworth looking nowhere near as buff as I expected
An old lady who looked exactly like Danny DeVito looking confusedly at Danny DeVito
Olivia Colman being unspeakably delightful
Mad dancing at the aftershow party at Café de Paris
Fifteen megatons of thanks to the Empire team, all at Romley Davies and of course Jameson Irish Whiskey for a lovely day. Next year I would like to meet Daniel Craig plskthks.
