“Black Panther” actress Letitia Wright and “Dunkirk” actor Barry Keoghan are among the five nominees for the 2019 EE Rising Star Award, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) said on Thursday.

The annual prize, the sole award voted for by the public at the glitzy BAFTAs ceremony in London, recognizes “outstanding achievement by upcoming actors”. Past winners include “Get Out” star Daniel Kaluuya, “Star Wars” actor John Boyega and Oscar nominee Tom Hardy.
