“Atlanta” star Stanfield has more recently been seen in Boots Riley’s acclaimed “Sorry to Bother You,” alongside Tessa Thompson, who was nominated for the Rising Star Award last year.

The list of five nominees was announced Thursday, about a week ahead of next Wednesday’s release of the full slate of actors, directors and others who will vie for a trophy from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Joining Wright and Stanfield in the Rising Star lineup are Jessie Buckley, Barry Keoghan and Cynthia Erivo. The winner will be unveiled Feb. 10 at the BAFTA gala ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

“It means a lot that my work has been recognized, especially in the country I’ve grown up in, and that I get to share this recognition with so many talented actors,” Wright said.

British star Buckley was most recently seen in British crime drama “Beast,” which saw her win most promising newcomer at the British Independent Film Awards in December, where she was also nominated as best actress.

Following a breakout year in 2017 with roles in Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” and Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” Irish actor Keoghan more recently starred in Bart Layton’s “American Animals” and Irish box office hit “Black ’47.”
