The five nominees have been announced for BAFTA 2017’s Rising Star award.
And they are as follows:
The Spanish actress Laia Costa is the star of ‘Victoria’ – a German crime thriller shot all in one take.
Ruth Negga is nominated for her impressive turn in ‘Loving’ from director Jeff Nichols.
Anya Taylor-Joy impressed with ‘The Witch’ in 2015 and received a nomination this year for her performances in ‘Morgan’ and ‘Split’.
Wes Anderson is a known fan of Lucas Hedges, and the young man could sneak a BAFTA from his role in ‘Manchester by the Sea’.
Tom Holland made a great impact in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ as Peter Parker and his standalone film ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ is now not far away.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ John Boyega won the award last year. And we’ll find out this year’s winner on February 12th.
