Michael Fassbender in X-Men: First Class

This must just be Michael Fassbender's year. It's one thing to be sexy in a film where you play a sexy sex addict who has sexy sex with all kinds of sexy sex-women. It's another to pull it off in a film where you a) have no sex and b) are also required to wear this ridiculous helmet. (Granted, Fassbender doesn't actually have to put the thing on until act three, but you knew it was coming the whole time, didn't you?) Never mind. Fassbender commits fully to the part, and his tragic friendship — more than friendship? — with James McAvoy's Professor X has a libidinal intensity that no actual mutant-on-mutant coupling could match. — Peter Smith

Runners-up: George Clooney in The Ides of March, Lea Seydoux in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Alexander Skarsgard in Straw Dogs, Jennifer Aniston in Horrible Bosses, Jon Hamm in Sucker Punch, Charlize Theron in Young Adult

The Third Annual Nerve Awards for Love & Sex on Film

A look back at 2011's most — and least — impassioned moments in cinema.
by Nerve

Each year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences gives out a bunch of awards. Here at Nerve, we also have an annual award show, more modestly confined to matters of the heart/loins. Welcome to the third annual Nerve Awards for Love & Sex on Film.


Michael Fassbender and Keira Knightley in A Dangerous Method

Psychoanalysis was once considered scandalous, subversive, and, as the title here says, "dangerous," but more than 150 years after the birth of Sigmund Freud, it's now widely seen as musty, cranky, and even outdated. Praises be to David Cronenberg for making it feel gloriously filthy again. The casting helps: if Carl Jung and his patient/protegee/lover Sabina Spielrein had really looked like Michael Fassbender and Keira Knightley, they should have dropped what they were doing and devoted their scientific curiosity to inventing the homemade sex tape. And when he ties her up and spanks her, the guilt and passion and frustration and release are so hot that you appreciate how exciting it must have been to go into forbidden territory back when the disapproval of polite society actually counted for something. — Phil Nugent

Runners-up: Aaron Eckhart and Amber Heard in The Rum Diary, Svetlana Khodchenkova and Tom Hardy in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Michael Fassbender, DeeDee Luxe, and Calamity Chang in Shame, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in Crazy, Stupid, Love

Michael Fassbender wins best actor at Standard film awards
By Tim Masters Entertainment and arts correspondent, BBC News
Michael Fassbender Michael Fassbender is also up for best actor at Sunday's Baftas

Michael Fassbender has won the best actor prize at the Evening Standard British film awards for his roles in sex addiction drama Shame and Jane Eyre.

His win comes less than a week before the Baftas, where Fassbender is up for best actor.

Olivia Colman won the best actress prize for her performance in brutal drama Tyrannosaur.

Lynne Ramsay's We Need To Talk About Kevin won best film.

John Hurt picked up the Alexander Walker special award for his contribution to cinema.

The veteran actor is due to collect the outstanding British contribution to cinema award at the Baftas on Sunday.

Monday's ceremony, at the London Film Museum, was delayed after a fire alarm during the champagne reception meant that all the guests - including Tom Hiddleston, Birdsong's Clemence Poesy and Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown-Findlay - were evacuated outside.

Fassbender's best actor win was for both his portrayal of a sex addict in Shame and his brooding Mr Rochester in Jane Eyre.

His award was collected on his behalf by Shame writer Abi Morgan who read a message from Fassbender in which he said he was "truly honoured and delighted" to receive the award.

Colman beat three Oscar winners - Vanessa Redgrave, Rachel Weisz and Tilda Swinton - to take the best actress prize for her role as a Christian charity shop worker in Paddy Considine's Tyrannosaur.

Presented with her prize by Doctor Who actor Matt Smith, the tearful actress said: "This film will be thing I'm most proud of until I die - apart from my husband."

Accepting the prize for We Need To Talk About Kevin, director Lynne Ramsay said she was "pretty overwhelmed".

She admitted: "It was such a struggle making this movie, a lot of times I thought I'd give up."

Irish comedy The Guard beat summer hit The Inbetweeners Movie to win the Peter Sellers comedy award.

Written and directed by John Michael McDonagh, it features Brendan Gleeson as a foul-mouthed Irish police sergeant.

The award was picked up by actor Mark Strong, who read a suitably irreverent message from McDonagh: "I'm shocked to win the Peter sellers Prize for comedy - I thought Tyrannosaur would win it."

Hurt's award for his contribution to cinema was presented by My Beautiful Laundrette director Stephen Frears.

Hurt, whose career spans four decades and includes the recent role of Control in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, said he was "enormously grateful".

He said the late Evening Standard film critic Alexander Walker, after whom the award is named, had once described him as "the nation's favourite victim".

Hurt added: "Well I don't feel a victim tonight."

The Evening Standard British film awards have been presented annually since 1973.

No shame in short

Poor Michael Fassbender. The actor's scintillating turn in Shame was overlooked at the Baftas, but he didn't leave entirely empty-handed on Sunday. Pitch Black Heist, a black-and-white movie which he co-wrote and in which he stars, won the Best Short Film award. In the 13-minute caper, Fassbender plays a criminal who plots to break into a safe whose alarm is triggered by light. In a unique twist, the climactic heist unfolds in three minutes of total darkness. "Someone told me that the rule is never have more than 30 seconds of black in a film," says director John Maclean. "I thought, 'that's a good rule to break'." The scene was filmed "at a friend's house, with the lights switched off". The rest of the film, made for under £30,000, was shot in three days at The Dolphin pub in Hackney.
