Tom Hardy, best-known to Star Trek fans for his role of Shinzon in Star Trek: Nemesis, is one of five nominees for the Orange Wednesdays Rising Star Award for 2011.

The other four nominees for the award include: Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans), Andrew Garfield (The Social Network), Aaron Johnson (Nowhere Boy) and Emma Stone (Superbad).
“It is so important to involve the general public in helping us determine the stars of the future, which is why the Orange Wednesdays Rising Star Award is such a fantastic initiative, said Finola Dwyer, chair of BAFTA’s Film Committee. “Our final five are truly representative of the rising stars who are capturing film fans’ hearts and minds, and I look forward to congratulating our winner on the night!”
