Debuted at last year's BAFTA Awards, the honor is set up in honor of the late Mary Selway, a lauded BAFTA Award-winning casting director.

Announced by "The Last King of Scotland" star James McAvoy, who won the prize last year, the finalists were "The Wind That Shakes the Barley" star Cillian Murphy, "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" star Ben Whisaw, "Casino Royale" star Eva Green, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" star Naomie Harris, and "The Devil Wears Prada" star Emily Blunt.

The winner will be chosen based on public vote and announced during the award ceremony slated to be held on February 11, 2007.
