Noel Clarke Picks Up BAFTA Orange Rising Star Award

Noel Clarke, the director, writer and actor beat of stiff competition from Michael Cera, Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Hall and Toby Kebell to pick up the Rising Star Award at BAFTA. In a shout out to all those who have hopes and dreams he dedicated Obama's campaign slogan 'Yes We Can' before walking of stage.

I hope we get to see more British talent from all different walks of life rising up to fulfill their true potential. I'm behind Noel Clarke all the way and I'm sure we will be seeing much more great things to come from him.
Kate Winslet won a Leading Actress gong for The Reader, as Slumdog Millionaire won seven gongs including Best Film. I went to watch Slumdog and loved it for it's authenticity and gritty story telling. And the child actors/actress in the beginning were the cutest!
