No chances of an Adam Deacon this year! The BAFTA Rising Star committee has wise up this year and selected five bona fide A-listers of tomorrow to compete for the award. The public votes on this award, making it a unique accolade among major awards season ceremonies, though also making its consistency level over the years somewhat spotty. But, by picking a talented crop of international names, some of whom have already risen to near-superstar status (and hardly qualify for this award, but meh), BAFTA has ensured a respectable winner gracing their stage on the 8th of February. Here are the nominees:

Rising Star
Gugu Mbatha-Raw
Jack O’Connell
Margot Robbie
Miles Teller
Shailene Woodley
