Congratulations are in order for Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence — she has a spot on the coveted British Academy of Film and Television Arts Orange Rising Star list!

The award, given out every year, acknowledges some of the film industry’s most promising stars.

So, who is her competition?

Thor’s Chris Hemsworth, Bridesmaids star Chris O’Dowd, and The Help’s Jessica Chastain are just a few who are up for the prestigous award.

According to Deadline, the list came from a judging panel that includes Sienna Miller, Star Trek actor Simon Pegg and Harry Potter director David Yates. The Brtish public will narrow down the list to 5 finalists who’ll be announced Jan 11, then another vote will follow with the winner announced at the BAFTA ceremony on Feb 12.

The special prize has previously gone to actors such as Tom Hardy, Kristen Stewart, Shia LaBeouf and James McAvoy.

Congrats!
