Rising Star nominations announced

BAFTAs to go ahead as planned

Shia LaBeouf (“Transformers”), Ellen Page (“Juno”), Sienna Miller (“Stardust”), Sam Riley (“Control”) and Tang Wei (“Lust, Caution”) have been nominated for the Orange Rising Star prize at this year’s British Academy Film Awards.

The nominees, selected by a jury of filmmakers, execs and journalists, were announced by last year’s winner, Eva Green, at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ London HQ on Tuesday. The winner will be chosen by public vote.

BAFTA hopes its Feb. 10 film awards ceremony will be unaffected by the WGA strike, following the cancellation of the Golden Globes.

“Neither BAFTA nor our broadcaster (BBC America) is in dispute with the Writers Guild of America; whilst we hope, for the sake of the whole international industry, that the dispute is resolved, we look forward to rewarding and recognizing great filmmaking talent from around the world at our ceremony,” the org said in a statement.

The awards, which will take place at London’s Royal Opera House, attract a strong contingent of American stars as nominees and presenters.
