The Empire Award for Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy is one of the Empire Awards presented annually by Empire magazine to the best sci-fi, fantasy or superhero film of the previous year. The Empire Award for Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy was one of four new Best Film ongoing awards first introduced at the 11th Empire Awards in 2006 (along with Best Comedy, Best Horror and Best Thriller). These new awards did not replace the existing Best Film and Best British Film awards. The winners are chosen each year by readers of Empire magazine.
