The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has released its full list of nominees for their Rising Stars award today, and among them is Tom Holland, the actor portraying Spider-Man in the upcoming Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures film “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
Although fans may only know him as the kid who plays Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Holland has actually been acting for some time now, on screen and stage. He’s had roles in films such as “In the Heart of the Sea” and “Locke,” and was featured in a leading role in “Billy Elliot the Musical.” Holland will also star in a bunch of 2017 films aside from “Spider-Man: Homecoming”.
Other nominees include Lucas Hedges (“Manchester by the Sea”), Ruth Negga (“Loving”), Laia Costa (“Victoria”), and Anya Taylor-Joy (“The Witch,” “Split”). Past winners of the award include James McCoy, Kristen Stewart, Eva Green, Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Juno Temple, Jack O’Connell, and John Boyega.
The nominees are selected by a panel of jurors that include esteemed actor Will Poulter, casting director Lucy Bevan, and producer Marc Samuelson. The winner will be determined with a public vote (voting has yet to go live), and announced at the British Academy Film Awards on February 12.
