Gemma Arterton Leads The Race To Be Bafta 2011’s Rising Star

The nominees for this year’s Orange Rising Star Award at the Baftas (voted for by the public) have just been announced, and it’s one hot line-up! Homegrown talent Gemma Arterton, Tom Hardy and Aaron Johnson are flying the British film flag as they go head-to-head for this year’s sought-after award. Andrew Garfield (who played Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network) and Easy-A star Emma Stone are also competing to steal the crown from last year’s Rising Star winner, Kristen Stewart – the competition is fierce! The winner will be announced at the Baftas ceremony on Sunday 13 February, so don’t forget to come back on 14 February to see all the red-carpet pictures.
