lauraxxtennant asked: This is such bullshit, why isn't dt nominated???????????? allll the papers thought that he would be. He was like the first one mentioned in so many articles about the Oliviers. Why. Whyyy. I'm so irrationally pissed off.
But not only DT but the whole play got exactly ZERO nominations. I don’t understand. Ok they don’t like David (
idiots) but Olivier Ford Davies (prince of York) was like 10000% more awesome than Gattiss.
And the costumes. And music. And light and sound. NOTHING.
I just don’t understand.
I want to go home and get drunk
Are you SERIOUS?
FAIL. Also: FAIL.
Is it because there’s a rule that the plays have to have originated in London? (I’m guessing here, because I don’t recall the Hamlet transfer winning anything either…)
Ok from the site, only productions that opened “in a theatre represented in membership of Society of London Theatre is eligible for consideration for the 2014 Olivier Awards with MasterCard, provided it has at least 30 performances.”
So any publication mentioning DT as a front runner has not done its homework.
Ugh. This is a terrible rule. I do not approve.
But Barbican is in SOLT. I mean we know Richard was opened in Sua but it was transferred to Barbican and had its London premiere and press night etc….
RICHARD II WAS GREAT GIVE IT ALL THE FUCKING AWARDS FUCKING WHAT
so it begins again.
