BAFTA – EE Rising Star Award 2019


The EE Rising Star Award at the BAFTAs is a very special award as we get to vote for the winner and they always manage to pick some fantastic nominees and that is no different this year!

Jessie Buckley EE Rising Star 2019 Jessie Buckley
I can remember watching a very young Jessie take part in the talent show ‘I’d Do Anything’ which was the search for a new Nancy for Oliver! She came second in that show and it s not great to see she has worked so hard in recent years and been nominated for this award.

Lakeith Stanfield EE Rising Star 2019 Lakeith Stanfield
Yes, this is the same actor you will remember from ‘Get Out’ last year in his very haunting performance. I am still waiting to catch ‘Sorry To Bother you’ so looking forward to it more now he has been nominated for this award.

Letitia Wright EE Rising Star 2019 Letitia Wright
A true standout in the brilliant ‘Black Panther’ film and she was very impressive in that as well as Avengers: Infinity War which was brilliant to see. She has more films coming out this year and I am sure this nomination will give her more attention.

Barry Keoghan EE Rising Star 2019 Barry Keoghan
This seems to be an actor I have missed the films of recently, although I did see ‘Dunkirk’. He has also starred in ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’ and ‘American Animals’.

Cynthia Erivo EE Rising Star 2019 Cynthia Erivo
She was very impressive in the thought provoking ‘Widows’ and unfortunately I missed ‘Bad Times at the El Royale’. She has previously won Tony Award, Emmy Award and Grammy awards.

  1. I would go with Letita, her Black Mirror episode is wonderful too,

    Barry is a year too late, a bit like how Tessa Thompson was on last years list.

    Cythia is a nice pick though because she was brilliant in two stand alone films.
