BAFTA Rising Star Award: A History

2020 is the 15th anniversary of the BAFTA having the Rising Star Award which is voted for by the public. Starting in 2006 known as the Orange Rising Star Award and then since 2013 the EE Rising Star Award, this is due to sponsorship and pretty much helps the award with publicity and getting the public involved in the voting for the winner. 

Over the years as I have become more and more obsessed with films I know more about the nominees which in all honesty makes me feel very special and at times very geeky. Which I personally love and am very proud of, I felt coming up to the 15th year it was very important to take a look back at not only the winners from each year but the other nominees as well. The list is very impressive and it feels as though someone at BAFTA can certainly pick out rising stars in the best possible way, the nominees are chosen regardless of gender, nationality and whether they have made a breakthrough in television, film or both.

Screening Type: 2D, Unlimited Preview
Date/time: Tuesday 13th March 2018 at 20:00
Runtime: 90 mins
Rating: TBC

Remember that it does not have adverts and only trailers so if you leave it 20-30 minutes you will miss the start of the film!

As usual I thought I would attempt to guess the possible films it would be, not going to look at the time or anything this time as Molly’s Game showed that it really didn’t matter at all. I am determined to have the film in my guesses at least once! Again they have put down 90 minutes, which we know doesn’t really matter at all! The rating caused problems last year when it was announced the film was a 15 so some people couldn’t take their kids!

Anyway let’s have a look at the possible film we could be watching . . .
