London: Rihanna has been crowned best pop star performance for `Battleship` in the first Empire Cinema Alternative Movie Awards.

The film, also starring Liam Neeson, was Rihanna`s first big part and featured the singer running around shooting aliens, reported Contactmusic.

`Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2` emerged a big winner at the first Empire Cinema Awards, voted by Empire customers, scooping best on-screen couple for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, best on-screen kiss, best film villain, best fight scene and best male body.

"The awards season is such a talking point in the film and cinema industry. We`ve created The Empire Cinemas Alternative Movie Awards to help celebrate film even more, but to also give film fans a voice and pick the winners of awards not generally seen at the big ceremonies.

"`Twilight` was a huge success for Empire Cinemas and it`s clear to see our cinemagoers agree, voting it the winner of five awards," said Jon Nutton, marketing director of Empire Cinemas.
