2012's contest for BAFTA Rising Star was all about the boys with a line-up that included our own Chris O'Dowd, but this year it's a different kettle of fish because four ladies and one lad are among the contenders.
Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises, Atonement) and Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) lead the female line-up which also features Andrea Riseborough (Brighton Rock) and Anna Karenina actress Alicia Vikander. Suraj Sharma is doing it for the boys thanks to his starring turn in Ang Lee's Life of Pi.
Hundreds of finalists were whittled down to just five by a jury featuring none other than Sherlock himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Kermode and director Kevin Macdonald. The final decision lies with the public.
Elizabeth Olsen was understandably delighted with her nomination, saying that it was an honour. "So many actors whom I admire have been recognised in this category and I'm very thankful to BAFTA and the jury for selecting me" she said. Andrea Riseborough was rather chuffed too, saying "BAFTA nurtures new talent throughout the international film community so I am so very grateful to be given this fantastic opportunity."
The public vote is open on the BAFTA website until February 8th and the winner will be revealed at the awards ceremony later in the month.
