BAFTA has released their nominees for Rising Star and they are:
These are voted on by the public, so the winners can be as random as hell or as popular and obvious as you expect them to be. They are mostly undeserved too (like, Kristen Stewart winning over Carey Mulligan in 2009) but whatever. These nominees are pretty good. I have not seen any of Vikander’s films, but I hear she’s incredible in both her releases this year, but I’ve seen some of the rest. Riseborough was exceptional in ‘W.E.’ and we all know how incredible Elizabeth Olsen was in ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’. Temple has been in a few films over the past couple of years, and she’s decent (although always upstaged). I’m baffled by the Sharma nomination. I actually found him one note and somewhat dull in ‘Life of Pi’. Samantha Barks should have been nominated, but she’s a stage actress and so I didn’t expect her to land here.
