From Jodie Comer To Sir Derek Jacobi – Here Are All The Stars Who Won Awards At The Oliviers

Sir Derek Jacobi, Jodie Comer, Paul Mescal and Beverley Knight were among the performers who picked up awards at this year’s Oliviers.

On Sunday night, Sir Derek – who previously won two Oliviers in 1983 and 2009, respectively – received a Lifetime Achievement accolade for his contribution to the world of theatre.

Choreographer and former Strictly Come Dancing judge Dame Arlene Phillips was also recognised with a Special Award for her career-spanning work.

Meanwhile, Jodie picked up Best Actress and Paul was awarded Best Actor for their respective performances in the plays Prima Facie and A Streetcar Named Desire.

“One thing I would like to say to any kids who haven’t been to drama school, who can’t afford to go to drama school, who have been rejected from drama school, don’t let anyone tell you that it isn’t possible,” an “overwhelmed” Jodie said during her acceptance speech.

“It might take the stars to align and you to be met with generous, kind, patient people, but it is possible.”

During his speech, Paul took a moment to pay tribute to his mum, who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer.

And after two previous nominations, Beverley finally scooped a much-deserved Olivier in the Best Supporting Actress In A Musical category, thanks to her performance as suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst in the show Sylvia.

“Big up Wolverhampton youth theatre – who gave me a chance when I was an 11-year-old,” the three-time Brit Award nominee said at the end of her speech.
