The nominations for the 2012 Empire Awards have been released, with Drive, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Rise of the Planet of the Apes all receiving several nods each. The biggest surprise, however, comes in the form of no less than 5 nominations for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Potter received noms in Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor (Daniel Radcliffe), Best 3D Film and Best Newcomer for Bonnie Wright.
