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.

Since Thor: Ragnarok has been on Sky Cinema the past few weeks I have found myself watching it over and over again. I am actually very annoyed with myself for not including it in my top 10 films of 2017. I have no idea at all why I didn’t put it on the list as it really is a truly fantastic Marvel film!

 

I have actually lost count how many times I have watched it since it appeared on Sky Cinema. I will eventually buy it on 4K Blu-ray I promise!

Everything is about to fall apart for Thor when Asgard is threatened with Ragnarok. The reappearance of Loki and the revelation of Hela the Goddess of Death who just happens to be their sister, nothing is going to be straight forward. Especially when Thor is captured and must fight the current champion Hulk!
