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)

It’s neat that he is nominated for something that probably was a couple days’ work. I like that he keeps being nominated for awards. Eventually he is bound to win one.
If he can get the roles, I think he’ll win a good one eventually.
So happy for him. The more good publicity and exposure he get the better!
When presenting him, name of Thorin Oakenshield should be always up there. Fingers crossed for another reward! ❤
i like that too and like the ‘stage and screen’ especially 🙂 he’ll get one, very good to be nominated again and again as well 🙂
I love all the promotion that Audible are giving him – they seem to appreciate what a gem they have on board!
Good for them. Good for him. Good for us.
