Law and Weisz scoop theatre awards
Jude Law, Rachel Weisz, Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart, Rowan Atkinson and X-Factor star Diana Vickers have scooped prestigious theatre awards, voted for by the public in record numbers.
Law and Weisz won best acting in a play gongs at the Whatsonstage.com Awards, Law for his title role in Hamlet and Oscar winner Weisz for playing fading beauty Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire.
A Streetcar Named Desire also took home the award for best play revival.
Both Hollywood stars already received a series of awards for the roles.
Law described the award for Hamlet, which transferred to Broadway, as "a real thrill".
He said in his pre-recorded speech: "It's a very important award for me because it's voted for by the theatregoers.
"Thank you very, very much. And I look forward to seeing you all again soon, on the stage."
The Royal Shakespeare Company's rival production of Hamlet, headed by former Doctor Who star David Tennant, was also a winner, with Sir Patrick named best supporting actor in a play for playing scheming ruler Claudius.
Sir Patrick also took home the theatre event of the year award - sharing the prize with his X-Men co-star Sir Ian, for their pairing in Waiting For Godot.
Atkinson, well known for his TV roles as Blackadder and Mr Bean, was named best actor in a musical for his portrayal of the money-grabbing Fagin in Oliver! while his co-star, I'd Do Anything winner Jodie Prenger, received the best supporting actress in a musical award for playing Nancy.
