9pm Sunday 22nd January on BBC1 – unmissable.
Yesterday I was writing about the Golden Globes in the US, today I’m much closer to home with the news that the BAFTA nominations are out.
My colleague Jess Alford sent an email at about 8am this morning with the full list – I’ll put together the UA clients who have been nominated when I’ve had a chance to plough through it properly.
In the meantime, I can tell you that Eddie Redmayne has been shortlisted for the Orange Rising Star Award.
I talked about Eddie after seeing MY WEEK WITH MARILYN. Not only has Eddie shone in that film; he can currently be seen on the stage playing the title role in Michael Grandage’s sell-out production of RICHARD II at the Donmar Warehouse (The Independent said A thrilling lead role… Eddie Redmayne’s brilliant Richard); he also plays Steven Wraysford in the upcoming adaptation of the Sebastian Faulks’ novel BIRDSONG which starts on BBC1 at 9pm this Sunday; and if that wasn’t enough, he is set to play Marius in Tom Hooper’s film adaptation of LES MISERABLES.
A rising star indeed, and you can vote for Eddie here.
