None of these are really surprises, but a lot of them match what I voted for - and I certainly saw plenty of non-celebs as well. Meera Syal's win was totally valid, as her performance in Shirley Valentine was one of the best nights I had in the theatre in 2010.

No real complaints, just a couple of mino grumbles.

Very pleased for Legally Blonde, Into the Woods and All My Sons and Les Miserables tour, got something and much deserved.

Also good to hear that Chess won the regional, makes me more determined to see this now.

Some random thoughts on this:

No surprises in the sense that the mega-shows are always going to figure prominently in awards based on audience votes - the more people who see a show, the more people there are to vote for that show and its performers etc. I'm really pleased for Ramin - his vocal performance in LND is awesome. But IMO the Best Performance By an Actor In A Musical this year did not even make the list of WOS nominees!!!!!

I was really hoping Victoria would win!

Over the moon for Rachel - she's fantastic.

Also, much as I like Les Mis - and I have friends who were in the tour who I'm chuffed for - how can a production of a show that has not stopped running for 25 years be a REVIVAL?!!!! That's more than just a little silly.

And how is Tamsin Greig a Supporting Actress in The Little Dog Laughed? She totally ran the show - everyone else was supporting her.

I would have thought Clybourne Park & After the Dance were far superior to the shows that won those categories. I know David Suchet was good but you sort of get the feeling people were just voting for Poiret!

People go for things they've heard of. Whether it's "what shall I book to see?" or "what shall I vote for?", they're going to go for things or people with the most recognition factor. Not so bad in the case of All My Sons, which was absolutely sterling in addition to starring "Poirot!!!" and "her off My Family!!!", but a little baffling in the case of things like The Little Dog Laughed, which was good not great but seems to have benefitted from some very recognisable faces.

The only vaguely surprising outcome I think is Timothy Sheader's Best Director award.

Because it wasn't the production that's been running for 25 years that won the award, it was the new re-directed, re-designed, re-orchestrated etc tour. These awards can often get a bit hamstrung by their own rules - Merrily We Roll Along won Best NEW Musical at the 2001 Olivier's despite the fact it was 20 years old at the time!

But Merrily had never been done in the West End before so it was a new show in that sense - plus it was a vastly rewritten version to the show that opened on Broadway in 1979.

And I know the Les Mis tour has different orchestrations and different staging and I'm delighted for the incredible cast and the brilliant work they put into the production - but, by definition, a show has to close before it can be "revived" lol. Its semantics, I know. I'm just being a devil's advocate.

Was it the "masses" who picked Nigel Lindsey as Best Supporting Actor? I thought he well deserved it - as Adrian Scarborough would have - but I wonder how many people actually saw him in Broken Glass at the Tricycle Theatre?

I remain happy and unsurprised with the exception being,

I could have accepted Into the woods losing out in Best Revival, despite the stroke of genius in location, original direction and strong cast, if the award hadn't gone to Les Miserables. It is NOT a revival! I get how it can be a technicality but people have voted for this as part of London's Les Mis anyway, probably not as its own production.

Also, I wish Donmar's Sondheim at 80 concerts could have had some recognition, but I might just still be bitter about having too much homework on the day of the Les Mis cinema broadcast!

At least with most awards, the panel has actually had the decency to watch the productions in question.

You can be sure that the majority of the voters haven't remotely seen all the actors/ creatives in a category. It's absurd.

Have no real issues with Best Actor/Actress. David Suchet and Zoe Wannamker were both brilliant but otherwise all very populist and lacking any real serious thought. Am with Weez on this sorry
