Five nominees for Orange Rising Star Award

Only Brit Academy Film award to be publicly voted

LONDON -- Michael Cera, Noel Clarke, Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Hall and Toby Kebbell will put themselves at the mercy of a public poll to secure this year's Orange Rising Star Award, dished out during the upcoming Orange British Academy Film Awards.

Created in honor of casting director Mary Selway after her death in 2004, the award is the only Orange BAFA award to be voted on by the public.

A jury including actors James McAvoy and Kelly Macdonald and chaired by BAFTA chairman David Parfitt chose five nominees from a long list of recommendations put forward by the film industry and BAFTA membership.

Previous winners include McAvoy, Eva Green and last year's winner, Shia LaBeouf.
