03-29-09: Gerard Attends the Jameson Empire Awards


Gerard attended the 2009 Jameson Empire Awards in London this evening (March 29), where RockNRolla took home the prize for Best British Film! Director Guy Ritchie, along with Mark Strong and Gerry, accepted the award on behalf of the cast and crew of the film.  Below is an excerpt of their remarks which were posted on the Empire Awards blog:

Guy Ritchie: “Thank you very much. I won’t say much more because Gerry Butler is the eloquent one among us. But thank you very much for this.”

Butler: “This was supposed to be Guy speaking but as usual he dumped it on me. Listen, I want to thank Guy who really wrote all the words and directed all the stuff and did a great job and it’s about time he got SOMETHING right…”

Ritchie: (chases Butler away from the mike)”That’s quite enough out of you Gerry.”

Mark Strong: “It’s great that people who know about movies and love movies decided to vote this Best British Film; thank you very much.”

Watch the Empire Awards website tomorrow for videos of the speeches, the red carpet and all the winners!  Congratulations to RockNRolla!!   Visit the gallery for more pictures…
