List RulesVote up the celebrities who hit the scene in 2019 and you think deserve more than 15 minutes of fame.

Unfamiliar famous faces show up across your screens on a daily basis, strangers until they're stars, and in 2019 there seem to be even more ways than before to steal the spotlight. From the breakout stars of 2019's best films to the voices behind 2019's greatest albums, these rising stars are making their names known to a wide audience and starting to claim some of the celebrity they deserve.

Whether they're someone you felt was being slept on, or on a clear and unencumbered path to the top, each fresh generation of popular, cool new celebrities bring an invigorating twist to the well-worn conventions of stardom. Some of these celebs have been working hard for years and are just now getting mainstream traction. Others are already names because they're cast on star-makers like the Game Of Thrones prequel. Maybe they finally released an album, worked their way up the cinematic ladder, or are the name on all the jerseys you see fans wear this year. However they earned it, these fresh faces and young names are ushering in a new era of talent and setting the bar for the stars of future generations who will someday follow in their footsteps.

Who do you think are the best new celebrities of 2019? Who has got the staying power to remain among the most interesting and the most talented names? Vote up the stars who are most deserving of the Best New Celebrity title!
