The 2016 BAFTA Rising Star winner is so hard to pick

BAFTA

As the only BAFTA category open to public vote, I always feel like it is my duty as a U.K. fan film to vote for the Rising Star Award and I have done in recent years, but my choice has never scooped the award (not even once!) So perhaps I shouldn’t and then my favourite would win.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer – My thoughts

star3

Today everyone is talking about Star Wars and the latest trailer for The Force Awakens. The marketing people behind these movie have been doing a terrific job – they know how to tease, keep fans excited, hint at potential reveals without actually giving away anything. That’s incredibly hard to do – but they’ve managed it.
