While the nominees do not have to be newcomers, the award recognises those who “have demonstrated exceptional talent, and are destined to be bright stars in the future of cinema.” For all five nominees 2014 was the break out year in their career, with each giving at least one star making performance.

Despite making her big screen debut in 2011 alongside George Clooney in The Descendants, 2014 was arguably the year Shailene Woodley hit the big time.
