Both Timothée Chalamet the star of Call Me By Your Name and Josh O’Connor who starred in God’s Own Country have been nominated for the EE BAFTA Rising Star Award for 2018. The good news is that the public gets to choose the winner, but the bad news is that we have no idea which one to vote for as they both gave equally brilliant performances as young men struggling with their sexuality.
