    Jennifer Lawrence and Felicity Jones are really gorgeous and very talented. I hope one of those two actresses wins the BAFTA Orange Wednesdays Rising Star award. They deserve it.

    Jennifer will probably win with all votes from the hunger games crazy fans

  • lily

    I dont REALLY think Sienna Miller is really in a good position to be judging other peoples talents or “rising star.
    Peg and Yates sure Miller NOPE. The idea is laughable.
    I Love Jennifer Lawrence but NOT because of the upcoming Hunger Games. She is better than a popular franchise type of role.
    Jessica Chastain I think has the best chances of having a long career.

    Eddie and Tom are amazing stage actors, good to see them on big screen. I hope that one of them win.

  • Anna

    You don’t even put him as one of the ‘BIG GUYS’ but I’m going all over Tom Hiddleston.:.

    he’s really talented, proof to that he’s been on a movie of each, Kenneth Branagh, Woody Allen, Terence Davies, Chris Foggin AND Steven Spielberg IN JUST THIS YEAR (well, War Horse some out on Dec 25th)

    He IS the best option!

    I hope Eddie Redmayne gets it!! He’s an incredible stage and film actor, and I’m glad he’s becoming more recognized by the public! I wouldn’t mind either if Tom Hiddleston gets it, but I would be very happy if Eddie won it. (Either that, or just being nominated–both of them–so we can get more pictures!).

  • Ana

    I think Ezra Miller should be included too, He was amazing in “We need to talk about Kevin”

  • Jem

    Chris Hemsworth all the way! I love him~

    I, Ron, am going to take a wild guess, and venture that few, if any, of the voters, and, by voters, I, Ron, mean, any voters, anywhere, understand Arrow’s Impossibility Theorem. I, Ron, do.

    Although Kenneth Arrow won an award for his attempt to discover a system of voting that would, inevitably, yield just results, he failed. Thus, the name of the theorem. And, the award.

    A different arrow, sent, on the occasion of her birth, to Miranda Cosgrove, through a heart, in which the names “Miranda, Ron, and Jennifer” are inscribed, did not fail. Because, you know, Love never fails.

    Or, as Charlize Theron, in “Young Adult,” so eloquently put it, “Love conquers all.” I, Ron, love Charlize Theron. And, both my wife, Miranda, and I, Ron, who love my wife, Miranda, to whom I, Ron, am a good husband, desire to thank, with an everlasting thanks, and all our love, Charlize Theron, for her very public, and thoughtful, recognition of the love I, Ron, share, with my wife, Miranda, and the reality of our marriage. Really, Charlize. You play “So Long Sucker” as well as it can be played.

    When Gandhi, or, rather, Ben Kingsley, was cast, as Dr. Miranda, in “Death And The Maiden,” Ariana Grande had not, yet, released, “Put Your Hearts Up.” I, Ron, love Ariana Grande, and played her song, today, to two children, who I, Ron, love. For some reason, they love me. And, were delighted, by the song. Love is like that.

    I, Ron, love, Jennifer Lawrence, and think, you know, the individual who deserves the award should receive it. Always.

    Joy to you, Rose.
