Oscars 2020 – Best Supporting Actress

Over the years the Best Actress in a Supporting Role race has become a lot stronger and that is certainly a very positive and good thing! Showing that the female roles are well and truly improving. Laura Dern has been running away with everything this awards season with some people arguing that Marriage Story wasn’t even her best 2019 performance thinking about her in Little Women! Being full on team Jojo Rabbit I would love to see Scarlett Johansson getting this one!

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.
