Nominated: Richard Armitage for The Crucible, James McAvoy for The Ruling Class, Tim Pigott-Smith for King Charles III, Mark Strong for A View from the Bridge
Should win: Tim Pigott-Smith
Will win: Anyone’s guess
This category is simply too close to call. Every single candidate would be a worthy winner. Pigott-Smith (pictured) takes it for me simply for showing this most sturdy and reliable of all actors in a brand-new light: more than an impersonation, a 3D portrayal of the future king.
Thanks to Micra for sending this along.
