The Empire Award for Best Newcomer (formerly known as Best Debut) is one of the Empire Awards presented annually by Empire magazine to actors and directors for a debut or breakthrough performance in a feature film. The Empire Award for Best Newcomer is one of six ongoing awards that have been handed out since the establishment of the Empire Awards in 1996 (the others being Best Film, Best British Film, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Director). The winners are chosen each year by readers of Empire magazine.
