Celebrating some of the most loved shows, films, and people to hit our screens in 2019 the the British Academy Film and TV Awards on Feb. 2 promise to be fabulous. And it’s not just a celebration of those who’ve been in the industry for years, as the BAFTA Rising Star Award and its 2020 nominees prove. Rising star insinuates that these actors are relatively new to the scene but they’re all super recognisable. Some even already have Golden Globes under their belt.
From acting alongside Tom Hardy and Rihanna, to starring in some of the most well-loved films from the past few years it takes a lot to be nominated for the BAFTA Rising Star Award. In 2020 the list is made up of five super talented actors who not only impressed critics but the audience too. AWKWAFINA, Kaitlyn Dever, Kelvin Harrison Jr, Jack Lowden, and Micheal Ward are this year's nominations and their combined CV and showbiz connections are out of this world. Unlike any of the other awards the public votes for the winner and you can have your say now. The winner will be announced at the 73rd awards show on Feb. 2.
