This is the only award at the Orange British Academy Film Awards to be voted for by the public. Tom says, “This is such an important award in that it supports the new generation of actors and actresses and also reflects the tastes of the cinema going public—who ultimately are the best ones to judge who they want to see more of on their screens.” 

Voting opens when the nominees are announced on 10 January 2011.
