John Boyega Snags The Honor Of Rising Star At The 2016 BAFTA Awards!

Star Wars is getting its recognition!

John Boyega shot into stardom with his role in the hit film, and now he’s run away with the Rising Star Award at the 2016 BAFTA Awards.

Not only did he snag the win, but he beat out some majorly talented competition in the form of Brie Larson, Taron Egerton, Dakota Johnson, and Bel Powley.

Boyega gave an incredible speech as he joked about his win being a fluke, thanked his friends and family, and dedicated the award to those young dreamers out there. Awww!
