Kristen Stewart Nominated for BAFTA Award

COPIED AND PASTED





Time to let your fingers do the talking, Twilighters! "New Moon" star Kristen Stewart has been nominated for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Orange Rising Star Award (the BAFTAs are often considered the U.K.'s equivalent to the Oscars). But unlike the Academy Awards, fans get to cast their vote for the Rising Star winner.

The award "recognizes five international actors and actresses who have demonstrated exceptional talent and have begun to capture the imagination of the public as a star in the making." Though KStew certainly fits the bill, she's got some undeniably tough competition in the category. Among them is Kristen's "Adventureland" costar Jesse Eisenberg for his work in the creepy-crawly horror flick "Zombieland."


Other nominees include Nicholas Hoult who you may remember as the titular boy in the Hugh Grant movie "About a Boy" and more recently as manipulative Tony on the BBC drama "Skins." His latest project for which he is nominated is the Tom Ford-directed "A Single Man." "Wall Street 2" actress (and 2008 Rising Star winner Shia LaBeouf's girlfriend) Carey Mulligan is also nominated for her role in "An Education," as is Tahar Rahim for the French movie "Un Prophete (A Prophet)."

The winner will be announced at the Orange British Academy Film Awards on Sunday, February 21. Check out

Tobey, who played action hero and his alter-ego Peter Parker in three films, announced his departure earlier this week.

He said he had enjoyed starring as the comic book hero but that it was time to move on.

"Beyond the films themselves, I have formed some deep and lasting friendships,” he said. “I am excited to see the next chapter unfold in this incredible story."

His decision to bow out has led to speculation over who should replace the actor, with Twilight star Rob emerging as a potential candidate.

The 23-year-old British actor's current schedule includes Bel Ami, which begins shooting in February, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

However, Rob faces competition for the role from Michael Cera, according to the Daily Record.

Meanwhile, Sam Raimi, who directed the first three Spider-Man films, has also quit the franchise.

At present, it's not clear when Spider-Man 4 is due to be released
