Upset to see no performance from Michael and Imelda of Sweeney. Act 2 Broadcast better than Act 1... why interrupt Nancy Carroll's acceptance speeech with fffing Gok Wan!!????
Sad to see no awards for Love Story and Love Never Dies. Feel sad for Suchet who has been nominated 9 times and has never won, but no grudge to Roger Allam. V pleased for David Thaxton. Didn't like tacky dancing at beginning. Also delighted for White Guard but SO annoyed we didn't see the awards for the technicals, and also awards like Best Entertainment. Personally I think it's plain rude. I know it may no interest your run of the mill BBC viewer, but it is an incredibly important part of theatre. Anyway.. rant over.

The Railway Children deserved the Entertainment Award.
At least King Lear won the sound award. I was suprised by the storm scene; though I'm not a one for loud sounds, and it was a change from the thunder and rain. I even found the moments when the storm disapeered as Derek spoke his lines interesting; it sounded as if I was listening into Lear's fragile mind, a change from listening to Lear shouting the lines

Feel sorry for both Love Never Dies and Love Story, I think they both deserved something!

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.
They weren't commenting on the Olivier performance, they were commenting generally on Sheridan's performance in Legally Blonde, having seen the show with Sheridan in it.

Because I had a ticket for Leny Henry in Richmond.
Came home and found out that LND didn't win anything....... But well done D. Thaxton.
Will watch the recorded 2nd half tomorrow.
