Last year was frustrating enough with Gambo talking cobblers when we were missing things. This year it's even more frustrating!  COME ON BBC. SHOW US THE PICTURES! Why talk to Gok Wan about anything even if it is a show he hasn't seen when we're missing the best actress's acceptance????????

This is so, unbelievably boring. If you're not watching the Olivier's tonight, don't feel bad about it, neither is the rest of the world. I don't want to watch interviews in a dressing room backstage, I want to watch the awards.
[West End] Wicked x7 . The Phantom Of The Opera x4 . Les Miserables x4 . Oliver! x3 .The Lion King x2 . We Will Rock You x2 . Sister Act x2 . Blood Brothers x2 . Hair x2 . War Horse x2 .

First off who told Jodie to wear that dress, she may as well gone topless


I think the performance show itself at Drury lane seems to be good (except cringy cheesy dancers at the start) but the interrupting with the Radio 2 commentary is SO annoying and also pretentious (what theatre needs to get away from in the public eye) I am on the verge of switching off. Its droning on and on.

Also highly amused how they commented on Sheridan Smiths performance and how she must win the Oliver (seriously enough with the Sheridan love) and she hadnt even performed, it was Susan who performed as Elle.
