The full nominations for the BAFTAs aren’t out until next week, but this morning the nominees for the Orange Rising Star Award were announced, so that the public can vote for the winner. So who’s up for the gong? Take a look below to find out…
Adam Deacon (Anuvahood, Kidulthood)
Chris Hemsworth (Thor)
Eddie Redmayne (My Week With Marilyn)
Tom Hiddleston (Thor)
Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids)
The nominees were whittled down from a longlist that also included Jessica Chastain, Felicity Jones and Jennifer Lawrence. It’s already been noted that it’s an all male list this year, and it does seem slightly odd that the three people on the longlist who aren’t in the final nominees are the women, especially in the case of Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence, who’ve had incredible years.
What’s less noted is that for the first time, there are absolutely no Americans amongst the nominees.
The winner is picked by the public, so once you’ve decided who you want to walk away with the award, click here to vote. The winner will be announced on February 12th.
