Star Wars beats Mad Max at Empire awards.

Sci-fi blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens trumped Mad Max: Fury Road at this year's Empire Awards, winning five awards to Mad Max: Fury Roads four.

The Force Awakens was named best sci-fi/fantasy and was also honoured for its visual effects, director J.J. Abrams and stars John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.

Fury Road was recognised for its make-up, costumes, soundtrack and production design at the central London event.
But neither title took home the best film award, which went to The Revenant.

Matt Damon was on hand to accept his best actor award for The Martian, while Sweden's Alicia Vikander won best actress for The Danish Girl.
