The Empire Award for Best Supporting Actor is an Empire Award presented annually by the British film magazine Empire to honor an actor who has delivered an outstanding performance in a supporting role while working within the film industry. The Empire Award for Best Supporting Actor is one of two ongoing awards which were first introduced at the 19th Empire Awards ceremony in 2014 (along with Best Supporting Actress) with Michael Fassbender receiving the award for his role in 12 Years a Slave. Winners are voted by the readers of Empire magazine.
