Elizabeth Olsen has been busy climbing up the A-list ladder, and the starlet's hardworking efforts have not gone unnoticed.

The little sis to twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen is one of the five nominees for the 2013 BAFTA EE Rising Star Award, which aims to identify up-and-coming talent that will presumably be the film stars of the future.

The additional nominees for the prestigious honor include Andrea Riseborough (W.E.), Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises) and Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina).

Selected by the British public, the honor will be presented during the British Academy Film Awards ceremony on Feb. 10.
