4 out of 5 BAFTA Rising Star Nominees are Female in 2013

BAFTA (which is decided by public vote, so feel free to make that happen) has nominated more women than men (man) this year for it's Rising Star award. Nice to see ladies getting recognition. Hopefully this, combined with the recent numbers at film festivals, are indicative of a trend.

At minimum it's aspirational and maybe in 10 years we won't have to care so much, because attitudes will have changed, gender will balance naturally in these things and we'll all be over it.
