In a number of categories, the person I'd have voted for wasn't even in the list of nominees LOL. But here's a selection of some categories where my choice was nominated, so I could vote:
Best Musical: Spring Awakening
Best Actress In A Musical: Kathryn Evans
Best Actor In A Musical: Aneurin Barnard
Best Supp. Actress in a Musical: Julia Sutton
Best Supp. Actor in a Musical: Iwan Rheon
Best Regional Production: Spend Spend Spend
Best West End Musical: Billy Elliot

Last year only 1 of the people/shows I voted for actually won the award - so I guess all those above are f****d then LOL.

"There's noway that any show other than Spring Awakening could win Best Lighting!!"

I totally agree - it should be a no-brainer that Kevin Adams should win for his SA lighting. Unfortunately when public voting decides the outcome, there's no way to predict how the results will go.

I completely agree with both Bob and Sam, Kevin Adams lighting design went against the norm, which was refreshing.

Can anyone still see the voting percentages? I used to be able to see it, but can't see them anymore. It would make sense for us not to see them anymore?

Also, vote Julia Sutton for Best Supporting Actor!

I thought that would be the most likely reason. Has anyone been to the awards ceremony before?
