Ever since Sienna became a household name for dating Jude Law (and being cheated on, and pioneering boho chic, oh, and partying a lot), she’s had trouble winning recognition for her actual profession: acting. But no more! Sienna’s just been nominated for the highly prestigious Orange Rising Star Award, which is handed out each year at the BAFTA Film Awards. James McAvoy won it two years ago, and last year he presented the prize to Casino Royale’s Eva Green. Eva just announced the five nominees at London’s BAFTA HQ; Sienna is joined by Transformers’ Shia LaBeouf, Ellen Page (excellent new film Juno), Sam Riley (Control) and Tang Wei (Lust Caution). Paddy Power have surprisingly named Sam as favourite to win with odds of 7/4, with Sienna (5/2) ahead of our tip, Shia (11/4). Ellen (4/1) and Tang (10/1) are less favoured by the bookies. The public decides who wins, so to vote for your favourite, and enter our competition to win tickets to the BAFTAs ceremony on 10 Feb, see this week’s issue of heat.
