Nominations for 2015 Oliviers - Best Supporting Actor/Best Supporting Actress in a Musical

Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical 

Rolan Bell in Memphis – ShaftesburyGeorge Maguire in Sunny Afternoon – Hampstead / Harold Pinter
Ian McIntosh in Beautiful – Aldwych
Jason Pennycooke in Memphis – Shaftesbury
Nice to see Memphis getting much love here, I suspect Kinks fans are better represented in the panel though to sneak the day for Sunny Afternoon.

Should win: Jason Pennycooke

Will win: George Maguire

Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Musical

Samantha Bond in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels – Savoy
Haydn Gwynne in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown – Playhouse
Nicole Scherzinger in Cats – London Palladium
Lorna Want in Beautiful – Aldwych

You're kidding me right? Scherzinger??!! I've a horrible feeling she might walk off with it too. Want is excellent and Bond and Gwynne both give sterling accounts of older women roles that might otherwise have seemed flimsy but we all know what gets headlines...
Should win: Samantha Bond

Will win: Nicole Scherzinger
