Nominations for 2017 Oliviers - Best Supporting Actor/Best Supporting Actress

Best Supporting Actor


Anthony Boyle - Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Freddie Fox - Travesties
Brian J Smith - The Glass Menagerie
Rafe Spall - Hedda Gabler


I was thoroughly enchanted by Brian J Smith in TGM but Anthony Boyle's perfectly played Scorpius is surely nailed on to justifyiably add to his collection of awards here.

Should win
: Anthony Boyle
Will win: Anthony Boyle

Best Supporting Actress

Melissa Allan, Caroline Deyga, Kirsty Findlay, Karen Fishwick, Kirsty MacLaren, Frances Mayli McCann, Joanne McGuinness, and Dawn Sievewright - Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour
Noma Dumezweni - Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Clare Foster - Travesties
Kate O'Flynn - The Glass Menagerie


I loved Our Ladies but nominating them in the play rather than the musical category?! Noma is all YAAS KWEEN (and HP might well steamroller the night) and I've yet to see Travesties but to my mind, O'Flynn is one of our most exciting young actor and thoroughly deserving of the win.

Should win
: Kate O'Flynn
Will win: Noma Dumezweni
