OLIVIERS 2014: Preview - Best Supporting Performance in a Musical
It's hard to believe Josefina Gabrielle has never won an Olivier Award. With a string of marvellous performances in the West End, she really should have a trophy cabinet full of silverware, like the very best football clubs.
Still, she's in with a chance again this year: nominated for her performance as Gussie in the Menier's production of Merrily We Roll Along.
Colman Domingo adds an Olivier nod to his Tony nomination for his role in The Scottsboro Boys, and Nigel Planer is nominated for his turn as Grandpa Joe in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
The final nominee is Stephen Ashfield, Elder McKinley in The Book of Mormon - possibly the most overtly crowd-pleasing performance overall.
Keep up-to-date on Oliviers night (Sunday 13th April) with BWW:UK's live coverage!
