Frequent co-stars Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller are among the young actors up for the BAFTA’s EE Rising Star Award. Their fellow nominees include Unbroken star Jack O’Connell, Belle star Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie. 

The British public votes for the winner of the award, and last year’s prize went to Will Poulter of We’re the Millers. The award, according to BAFTA, is not considered a “true ‘beginner’s award.'” Watch Stephen Fry introduce this year’s nominees below—and wonder why they chose to show a clip of Mbatha-Raw in Larry Crowne rather than, say, Beyond the Lights.
