Tom Hiddleston, Jude Law: Stars compete for Olivier Awards

UPDATED 10 MARCH 2014 02:02 PM

Tom Hiddleston and Jude Law will compete for the best actor honour at this year's Olivier Awards, but there is no room for fellow Hollywood star Daniel Radcliffe on the shortlist.

Other nominees for the prestigious theatre awards include Dame Judi Dench who is shortlisted for best actress and Sherlock star Mark Gatiss whose performance in Coriolanus at the Donmar Warehouse sees him nominated for best supporting actor.

Dame Judi is nominated for Peter And Alice in which she starred opposite fellow Bond cast member Ben Whishaw.

Sam Mendes' musical of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and the revival of Stephen Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along lead the field with seven nominations each.

Law and Hiddleston, nominated for the title roles in Henry V and Coriolanus respectively, face competition from Henry Goodman and another of Dame Judi's 007 co-stars Rory Kinnear.

Goodman is recognised for his performance in The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui at the Duchess Theatre, while Kinnear's Iago in the National Theatre production of Othello sees him shortlisted.

Radcliffe, who won best actor at the What's On Stage Awards for The Cripple of Inishmaan, is not shortlisted.
