Best Actress - Nancy Carroll
Best Actor - oh god, such a choice. Not Rylance because the play was...well, it was La Bete. I'd go with Suchet because I don't think he's won before?
Best Supporting Actress - picking Gina McKee because I wuv her
Best Supporting Actor - Adrian Scarborough, he was great plus it's good press for Betty Blue Eyes
Best New Play - Clybourne Park, nice juicy now-commercial success
Best Musical Revival - Passion
Best New Musical - I'm with Weez on this one, Love Story SHOULD win by virtue of being quite good and home grown but it'll mean more for Legally to win.
Best Entertainment - Ghost Stories
Best Musical Actress - I think Sheridan will win it, again it's more important for Legally to win the award, but Emma Williams was absolutely brilliant so I'd rather she won.
Best Musical Actor - Thaxton or Xavier. What a weak year, though (no disrespect to either of those two).
Best Supporting Musical - Josefina Gabrielle because everyone loves her. Although Jill Halfpenny might half-inch it?
Best Director - Howard Davies
Best Revival - King Lear (All My Sons was a full-on revival, at least Lear is a new production)
Best Choreographer - the Sucker Punch guy, because the Oliviers like to reward choreography in plays
Best Lighting - PAULE CONSTABLE
Best Set Design - The White Guard
Best Costume Design - London Assurance
Best Sound Design - interesting category, all the designs are intriguing uses of small spaces or unconventional designs. I'd go with Railway Children personally.
Affiliate Theatre - Lyric Hammersmith
Best New Opera - La Boheme (heard this is/was fantastic)
Best Opera Performance - dunno
Best New Dance - Babel (WHY is Cinderella, which is basically a revival, nominated?)
Outstanding Achievement in Dance - Anthony Gormley
Audience Award - Les Mis (Wicked isn't eligible this year, after all)

I'm very excited at the prospect of Josefina Gabrielle actually winning the Supporting Role in a Musical award.

Jill Halfpenny - not a strong enough role
Summer Strallen - again probably not strong enough
Michael Xavier - nyeh...
Josefina Gabrielle - what a sumptuous role in a show - great dancing, singing, comedic part, takes really triple threat talent to kick this character into gear.

I think Gabrielle will get it!!!

Honestly, I just want to see Legally Blonde and Sheridan Smith win. If that happens, I'll be thrilled.
