Jude Law and Rachel Weisz win at the Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards

Jude Law and Rachel Weisz brought a touch of Hollywood glamour to the Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards today, when they both won gongs for roles on the London stage.

Law, who recently starred as Dr Watson in Guy Ritchie’s film Sherlock Holmes, won the award for Best Shakespearean Performance for his role as Hamlet in Michael Grandage’s West End production, which later transferred to Broadway.

Weisz picked up the Best Actress gong for her role as Blanche DuBois in a new production of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire. The award comes 16 years after Weisz first graced the London Awards ceremony, having picked up the award for Most Promising Newcomer back in 1994 for Design For Living.
