Hugh Jackman Wins "Empire Icon" At Jameson Empire Awards

Of course Jackman has played a number of memorable roles over the years, but there's no doubt that he's best known for portraying Wolverine -- which he will do so for a record setting seventh time in X-Men: DOFP. A well deserved award indeed. See the full list of winners after the jump.

Great nominations. Happy to see The World's End and James McAvoy get some love (can't wait to see Filth). The only thing I would have changed was the Horror category, I much preferred Evil Dead to The Conjuring (I liked both movies, but Evil Dead is undeniably the scariest of the bunch if you ask me).
dinkinflicka - 3/31/2014, 8:07 AM
This is why I like Hugh Jackman he's always loved being the Wolverine, it always felt like some actors (Tobey McGuire) lamented playing iconic characters. And now they are basically nothing.
freebirdink843 - 3/31/2014, 8:11 AM
Hell yeah. Hugh IS wolverine. When he is done playing him we will all feel the same way. And i agree, evil dead is way better than conjouring.
rubbish78 - 3/31/2014, 8:13 AM
He deserves =D
MrNiklander - 3/31/2014, 8:15 AM
Guy deserves it.I see he is getting for Blackbeard for that movie Pan.

Wolverine is supposed to be from Canada , know what is funny . I am from Canada and have never in my life heard anyone call someone else bub . Has anyone else ? I am just curious where that came from.
Nomis - 3/31/2014, 8:21 AM
Well, I DIDN'T vote for him!
MrReese - 3/31/2014, 8:57 AM
A humble actor is a lovable actor.He does seem like a really nice guy.

@Thunderforce ........the comics




GOOD FOR JACKMAN
Destined - 3/31/2014, 9:59 AM
Best thriller should've went to Prisoners, but overall decent winners.
pointman - 3/31/2014, 10:28 AM
Of course he loves playing wolverine. It is his cash cow.
sKeemAn - 3/31/2014, 10:28 AM
I despise award shows. A bunch of actors measuring and praising their cocks.

I'm living out my Grif moments
nowtheresaBATman - 3/31/2014, 10:41 AM
He's best known for Wolverine because its been jammed down our throats for the last 15yrs.
BANEofExistence - 3/31/2014, 10:55 AM
3 X-Men actors winning for roles (And no, Jennifer Lawrence or Halle Berry were a part of that list :p)
Shamo - 3/31/2014, 11:41 AM
Stil the best superhero casting to date.
FerFogs - 3/31/2014, 12:21 PM
I like him. I guess Reeves, Jackman and Downey Jr. are the most memorable CBM actors.
GUNSMITH - 3/31/2014, 1:25 PM
THE GUY WORKS FOR HIS CRAFT AN FOR FANS...



THE MUSCLE THIS GUY PACKS ON IS RIDICULOUS....THAT'S NOT EASY TO DO.
