What is the EE Rising Star Award?

The EE Rising Star Award is the only award at the British Academy Film Awards chosen by the public.

Now in its fourteenth year, the award honours an emerging actor or actress who has demonstrated exceptional talent and ambition and has begun to capture the imagination of the British public.

The latest winner will be revealed at the EE BAFTAs ceremony, which takes place on Sunday 10 February 2019.

EE Rising Star Award nominees Jessie Buckley, Cynthia Erivo and Letitia Wright feature in an all-female episode of Edith Bowman's Soundtracking podcast ahead of the EE BAFTAs.

In this unique podcast, the nominees discuss the music that inspired them and how they use music in their films.
