Aidan Turner and Michael Fassbender nominated for Empire Awards

IRISH actor Aidan Turner has been nominated for a Jameson Empire Awards, as chosen by the readers of the popular movie mag.

Turner, who starred in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, is up for Best Male Newcomer.

The 30-year-old Dublin actor from Clondalkin first sprang to fame in RTÉ medical drama, The Clinic before going to star in Being Human for the BBC, and has seen his stock rise following the two Hobbit movies to date.

His fellow Irishman Michael Fassbender is up for Best Supporting actor for his role in 12 Years A Slave, a category which he will also contest at the Sunday’s Oscar awards.
