The 23-year-old actress walked away with the prize - the only accolade at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards to be voted for by the public - at the ceremony at London's Royal Opera House and admitted she wanted to enjoy her victory with her parents, producer Amanda Pirie and film director Julien Temple, because without their support she wouldn't have been able to launch her career.
She said: ''I've got a lot of amazing people that help me make the right decisions, they're my family and friends. It doesn't always go your way ... It's definitely hard. It's definitely lonely. But it is the most rewarding thing and I am so lucky to have the job I have ... I'm going to make sure I am with people that I love and drink loads of champagne.''
She told the Metro newspaper: ''They were very supportive of me going to LA because they have known it. I am enjoying it. It's really great for work. You have a lot of auditions. It really benefits you being in the room there.''
Juno beat Andrea Riseborough, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Olsen and Suraj Sharma to the prize, which recognises the hottest new talent in cinema and was created in honour of the late Mary Selway, the highly respected BAFTA-winning casting director.
Pippa Harris - Deputy Chair of BAFTA's Film Committee and Chair of the Jury for the EE Rising Star Award - congratulated the young starlet on her win and hopes her victory will signal an exciting time in her career.
Pippa said: ''It has been a fantastic year for emerging film talent and all the nominees clearly have star quality. Congratulations to Juno I hope this award marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter in her career.''
