Richard Armitage in The Crucible – Old Vic
James McAvoy in The Ruling Class – Trafalgar Studio 1
Tim Pigott-Smith in King Charles III – Almeida / Wyndham's
Mark Strong in A View from the Bridge – Young Vic / Wyndham's
A strong category surely with a Strong winner (badumtish).
Should win: Mark Strong
Will win: Mark Strong
Gillian Anderson in A Streetcar Named Desire – Young Vic
Kristin Scott Thomas in Electra – Old Vic
Imelda Staunton in Good People – Hampstead / Noël Coward
Penelope Wilton in Taken at Midnight – Theatre Royal Haymarket
I missed Wilton's performance but of the others, I think Anderson was my favourite. I'd happily see either of the others win though, Staunton particularly strong this year, as she is every year!
Should win: Gillian Anderson
Will win: Imelda Staunton
