Actress Juno Temple last night won the EE Rising Star Award, the only BAFTA awarded by the British public.
Her work includes roles in Notes on a Scandal, Atonement and Killer Joe.
The award was created in honour of Mary Selway, the highly respected BAFTA-winning casting director, and recognises emerging talent.
It is sponsored by mobile network EE, the UK’s first 4G network which also operates the Orange and T-Mobile brands in the UK.
Past winners include Noel Clarke, Kristen Stewart, Shia LeBeouf, Eva Green and James McAvoy.
Temple beat Andrea Riseborough, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Olsen and Suraj Sharma to the accolade which was presented at last night’s BAFTA awards at London’s Royal Opera House.
In her acceptance speech Temple described the award as a “huge, huge honour” and thanked “all of the voters” and her “wonderful family and friends” for their support.
After the show Spencer McHugh, Director of Brand at EE, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that the British public has chosen Juno as their winner.
“With the award now in its 8th year the continued support of the voting public has helped us build on its great reputation as a credible accolade in the film industry. Congratulations to Juno, a much-deserved winner.”
