So at 7pm as the show started, just as I was sitting down to an evening with Twitter and the WOS website to follow the news from the ceremony (I *know* how to have a good time ;) ) @guardianstage posted a link to an article listing all the winners, and a few minutes later @whatsonstage post a link to the Whatsonstage news page, with an article listing all the winners.

WHY?!?!

Couldn't the press embargo have been later on, for example, say AFTER the ceremony had finished?

I'd be interested to hear what possible reasoning there was behind this decision which makes the whole ceremony seem utterly pointless.

Though I suppose it's up to the individual whether to actually follow those links?

Did the winners also know they had won before the awards ceremony started, as Sierra Boggess wrote on her twitter page 2 hours ago she was watching superman on tv. Surely if she was nominated she would have attended the ceremony in case she won.

These awards are a bit of a joke anyway. Whoever takes over in Wicked will win best takeover... Year after year. And Ramin Karimloo winning for Paint never Dries? Purlease.  

Still glad to see Legally Blonde win for best musical and Sheridan.. And the railway children for best design. That Flashdance was nominated for design shows how little these awards relate to quality.

I thought this too. Sheridans brother didn't even know she'd won until he read loads of messages on his twitter/facebook. So spoilt it for him aswell.
