Olivier Awards 2017: See all the actresses up for top honours

Now the whirl of Best Dressed lists and Nicole Kidman clapping memes have faded from internet memory, you’d be forgiven for thinking awards season was finished for another year. Far from it; the build-up to theatre’s biggest night, the Olivier Awards, is only just beginning. Nominations were announced this week and surprise! There’s a wealth of female talent up for the top honours, 

From Billie Piper’s barnstorming turn as the tragic ‘Her’ in Yerma, to Noma Dumezweni bringing adult Hermione Granger to sparkling life in Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress categories are stuffed with fearsome performances. Catch up on the nominees ahead of the official ceremony, broadcasting from the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 7th April.
