The EE Rising
Star Award

The Rising Star is our very own award at the British Academy Film Awards, which recognises outstanding achievement by upcoming actors, and is the only award voted solely by the public.

Each year, a jury of film industry experts select five nominees who they feel have demonstrated exceptional talent and are deserving of the EE Rising Star Award.
