Nominations for 2016 Oliviers - Best Actor/Best Actress in a musical

Best Actor in a Musical

Matt Henry in Kinky Boots – Adelphi
Ian Bartholomew in Mrs Henderson Presents – Noël Coward
Killian Donnelly in Kinky Boots – Adelphi
David Haig in Guys and Dolls – Savoy
Jamie Parker in Guys and Dolls – Savoy

Best Actress in a Musical

Imelda Staunton in Gypsy – Savoy
Tracie Bennett in Mrs Henderson Presents – Noël Coward
Natalie Dew in Bend It Like Beckham – Phoenix
Laura Pitt-Pulford in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers – Regent's Park Open Air
Sophie Thompson in Guys and Dolls – Savoy


Dame Imelda will surely sweep all before her but it would be nice to see Natalie Dew sneak in for the much-maligned Bend It..., and I suspect Matt Henry will take the Best Actor crown and I'm entirely OK with that.
