‘Hamilton’ receives record number of Olivier nominations
    2018-03-08  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

HIT hip-hop musical “Hamilton” has made Olivier awards history by receiving a record 13 nominations.

The West End show received two more nominations than the 11 “Hairspray” and “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” received in 2008 and 2017 respectively.

Two of its nominations are in the best actor in a musical category, where Giles Terera and Jamael Westman are both recognized.

“The Ferryman” gets eight nominations, including one for best new play.

Catherine Tate will host this year’s awards, to be held at the Royal Albert Hall in London on April 8.

“Hamilton” uses rap and hip-hop to tell the story of U.S. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, played by Jamael Westman in London.

Three of the show’s Olivier nominations come in the same category — best supporting actor in a musical — meaning that the most awards it can actually win is 10.

The National Theater’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s “Follies” has also performed strongly, having landed 10 nominations.

Named after Laurence Olivier, the Olivier Awards were established in 1976 by the Society of London Theater and are billed as Britain’s most prestigious stage honors. A full list of nominations can be found on the Olivier Awards website.
