The Empire Awards 2018

Welcome back to the Creative Awards London blog where we showcase the very best in bespoke award design and trophies. In today's blog post we hurriedly straighten our ties, flatten down our unkempt hair and don our very best as we avidly look towards the Empire Film Awards 2018.

The 23rd Empire Film Awards 2018, sponsored by Rakuten, take place this coming Saturday at the illustrious Roundhouse in Camden, a venue we have had the pleasure to attend whilst seeing some pretty damn good gigs. Since 1996 The Empire Film Awards have been one of the highlights of the film calendar. Celebrating the best films of the previous year, the Empire Awards bring together the biggest names in the world of cinema to celebrate, free drinks included, and reward the actors, actresses, directors and those from behind the scenes who make the films we all love. 

This year is no exception as blockbuster films dominate the nominations. It's a battle between sci-fi and fantasy for the most nominations this year as Star Wars: The Force Awakens (9) goes head to head with Thor: Ragnarok (8) followed by Baby Driver, Call Me By Your Name and Get Out with 5 nominations respectfully. 

Household names and global franchises compete this year to win the famed awards. Amongst the nominees, there is a slew of British actors including John Boyega for his role as swashbuckling Finn in Star Wars, Monkey man Andy Serkis for Planet of the Apes and Emma Watson for her portrayal of Belle in Beauty and the Beast.

The Empire Awards 2018The award itself is one of our most iconic designs. Sticking with the philosophy of simplicity, the Empire Award is made from  a single piece of aircraft grade aluminium and is coated in an secret zinc mix to create a lavish and shiny exterior. Overlaid on the silver body of the award is custom cut red and black acrylic lettering of the famous award. Finished with a high res graphic of the award winner's details and the sponsor, the clean and modern design captures the importance of the ceremony and brand. We simply love this design and certainly feel that is as at home on the red carpet as it is in a glittering awards cabinet.
