This makes two years in a row that Richard Armitage has been nominated for Audie Awards ( two nominations, last year).
It tickles me that the article cited ( and perhaps, the Audible press release) listed Richard Armitage among the highlights:
- Stage and screen actor Richard Armitage’s swoon-worthy performance of Classic Love Poems in the “Best Male Narrator” category.
Not a word about Thorin Oakenshield or The Hobbit – just stage and screen actor, is the description given, oh, and swoon-worthy – well, yes.
Also rewarding is the fact that he’s nominated for reading poetry, and not some best-seller or classic that might have a leg up in sales because of its popularity.
And it was FREE! That particular audiobook came to fans of Armitage and Audible as a wonderful Valentine’s present, wrapped up in a swoon-worthy interview, both for its content and how fresh and stunning our guy looked that day.
Congratulations, Audible and Armitage. You appear to be a winning combination.
Maybe they can make it three in a row, after 2016’s David Copperfield. (more about that later)
