2012 BWW:UK Awards: SWEENEY TODD And MATILDA Continue To Lead The Way!

2012 BWW:UK Awards: SWEENEY TODD And MATILDA Continue To Lead The Way!

After a weekend of frenzied Twitter chat about the 2012 BWW:UK Awards, voting has been boosted by fans getting their votes in for their favourites as we enter the last weeks of polling!

Michael Ball, Imelda Staunton, Lucy May Barker and Peter Polycarpou still head their categories for their performances in Sweeney Todd - but the stars of Matilda, including Broadway-bound Bertie Carvel, are pushing them close.

For the long-runners, Les Miserables - preparing for the cinema release of the silver screen version starring Hugh Jackman - leads in the Best West End Show category, with Rock of Ages hot on its heels.

Rock of Ages and Les Mis are battling it out in the Understudies category as well, with Jonny Purchase and Ian McIntosh in the top two slots at the moment.

But the voting could still all change!

Other high-profile performers who are nominated but not currently leading their categories include One Man Two Guvnors' Owain Arthur and Gemma Whelan, Top Hat's Tom Chambers, Sheridan Smith (who closed this weekend in Hedda Gabler), Kiss Me Kate's Adam Garcia, Taboo's Niamh Perry, and Soho Cinders' Michael Xavier, Jenna Russell and Amy Lennox.

So your vote can make a difference - if you've not got your choices in yet, now's the time!
