    Jewish actor Andrew Garfield has been nominated for this year's Bafta rising star award.

    The half-British star, chosen as the next star of the Spiderman franchise, will soon be on screen alongside Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan in the film version of the Kazuo Ishiguro novel Never Let Me Go.

    Last month Mr Garfield was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in The Social Network, about the founding of Facebook.

    The film, written by Aaron Sorkin, has also been placed on the long-list of potential nominees for the 2011 Baftas.

    Other films tipped for Bafta nominations include Darren Aronofsky’s ballet thriller Black Swan, which stars Jerusalem-born actress Natalie Portman, and The King's Speech, written by David Seidler.

    Mr Garfield, 27, is up against Bond girl Gemma Arterton and three other British and American actors for the Bafta award.

    The winner will be named on February 13 at the Bafta ceremony.
