Last Sunday was a big night for Gemma Arterton, who was recognised as the best newcomer at the Jameson Empire Awards. “I’m going to put it next to my only other award, which I won for a short play festival when I was 14. This is a proper one.”

Mackenzie Crook, of Pirates of the Caribbean fame and Miss Arterton’s love interest in Three and Out, presented the award.

Mackenzie Crook: “I was once nominated for this award. Didn’t win: I lost out to Martine McCutcheon. And here I am triumphantly back again to present the nominees.”

AND THE WINNER WAS… Gemma Arterton. Who danced her way to the stage, pausing only to hug fellow Quantum of Solace Bond girl Olga Kurylenko.

Arterton: “I’m completely winging this. I never prepare for anything. Watching that I realise how wonderful all the nominees are, really and truly, especially Toby [Kebbell] who’s a good friend of mine. But thank you all very much, it does mean a lot. Have a great night everyone!”

She beat strong competition from Robert Pattinson (Twilight), Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe), Hayley Atwell (The Duchess) and RocknRolla co-star Toby Kebbell. In 2007 the best newcomer award went to Casino Royale Bond girl Eva Green (Vesper Lynd).

The 23-year-old actress chose an elegant cream off-the-shoulder negligee-style dress from Halston which stood out amidst a sea of black.

“Gemma’s skin was glowing and her hair and make-up looked great,” an onlooker said.

We hope this is only the first of many awards yet to come! Congratulations, Gemma! :) :heart:
