Orange Rising Star McAvoy Joins Jury
Wanted star judges 2009 BAFTA nominees

17 November 2008  |  Written by Emily Phillips  

submit to reddit

First ever winner of the Orange Rising Star Award, James McAvoy has flipped to the other side of the coin by judging this year's nominees. Following his win in 2006, his Hollywood career has gone from strength to strength, seeing him take the lead in Atonement and Wanted.

Now in its fourth year, the award went to Eva Green in 2007 and last time to Shia LaBeouf. It was set up in memory of BAFTA-winning casting director Mary Selway, who launched many careers during her long and distinguished career, working on films such as Gosford Park, Master And Commander and Withnail & I.

This award is the only BAFTA voted for by the public, but today the panel, including McAvoy and Empire's very own Editor At Large Nev Pierce, cast their votes to select the shortlist. Pick your favourite of the final five from January 8 at:  www.orange.co.uk/bafta.
