BAFTA Watch - The Potential Rising Stars Are Revealed

BAFTA have just announced the contenders for this year’s Rising Star Award, the only award in their ceremony that is voted for by the public.

And this year’s contenders are –

Tom Holland (he’s Spider-Man, you know)

Ruth Negga (Loving)

Anya Taylor-Joy (she’s a Witch, you know)

Laia Costa (one-take Victoria.)

The Rising Star will be revealed on the night of this year’s BAFTA Film Awards ceremony, February 12, and you can vote by going to –
