Rich Award Recognition, But Will He Get the Big Nomination?

I feel like breaking my rule and boycott against using the dreaded “atige” suffix, i.e. beardatige, thumbatige, and a bunch of others – and just screaming – AWARDITAGE!

It is just so thrilling and affirming that in a short span of time, Richard Armitage has been recognized, at least at the nomination stage, but also the awards stage, for recognition of his work – all his work – every genre.

For his audio work, His Hamlet Audio book won  the Earphones Award for Best Fiction, and he has been nominated  in the Solo Narration category for an Audie Award, also for Hamlet. ( Voice Work). The Audie Award is the Oscar for Audiobooks.

He’s been nominated as Best Supporting Actor for The Hobbit: BOTFA, by the Saturn Awards people.

He’s been nominated for Best Actor for BOTFA by the  Jameson Empire awards. (voting still happening here.)

He was nominated in the Best Actor category for the What’s on Stage Awards for The Crucible ( Theater)

And now, we wait for the big one – in my opinion, the most prestigious for him – and that’s a nomination for an Olivier Award, recognizing his astounding performance as John Proctor in The Crucible.

Fingers crossed. Nominations will be announced in a few short days, on March 9. After all I’ve heard and read, I will be flabbergasted if he doesn’t receive a nomination for his Proctor.

And some of this means we will likely have a chance to see him live, soon, at least at some of these awards shows.

SO We DO know where @RCArmitage is, and Congrats on his Empire Award Nom for Best Actor
