News: BAFTA Rising Star nominations announced


With awards season on the horizon, the nominees have been announced for BAFTA’s EE Rising Star Award.

The five nominees have had a remarkable year between them, and with huge films ahead of them the future sets to be even brighter for them.

Leading the pack is home-grown talent Jack O’Connell. Star of cult TV teen drama Skins, and more recently the lead in the Angelina Jolie directed film Unbroken, O’Connell has gone from the small screen to appearing in huge blockbusters, also appearing in last year’s 300: Rise of An Empire.

Up next is Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who is probably most known as the titular character from 2013 period drama Belle. We’ll see her next in sci-fi flick Jupiter Ascending.

Miles Teller, star of the critically acclaimed, but yet to be released in the UK, Whiplash has also received a well-earned nomination. Teller will star as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) in the upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four.

Margot Robbie is next in the shortlist, most recognisable from her recent role as Naomi Lapaglia in The Wolf Of Wall Street. Robbie has certainly come a long way from her role as Donna Freedman in Australian soap Neighbours, and has been recently cast as two iconic characters in upcoming films; Jane in Tarzan, and Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad.

Finally, rounding off the pack is Shailene Woodley, star of the Divergent series and last year’s blub-fest, The Fault In Our Stars.

I don’t know about you, but my money is on Miles Teller to win. The winner of the EE Rising Star award is selected by public vote, so it really is anyone’s award!

The BAFTA ceremony is on February 8th.
