Whatsonstage.com: Vote Benedict for Best Actor

It is neck and neck between Benedict Cumberbatch and David Tennant for Best Actor in the Whatsonstage.com Awards, with David just slightly ahead at the moment (David is on 28%, compared to Benedict's 27%). These are the latest stats:

Best Actor in a Play

1. Benedict Cumberbatch – Frankenstein at the National, Olivier

2. Jude Law – Anna Christie at the Donmar Warehouse

3. Kevin Spacey – Richard III at the Old Vic

4. David Tennant – Much Ado About Nothing at Wyndham’s

5. James Earl Jones – Driving Miss Daisy at Wyndham’s

6. James Corden – One Man, Two Guvnors at the National, Olivier & Adelphi

Obviously, we want Benedict to win so VOTE BENEDICT NOW! I am saying this because I saw both performances live. There is no competition. Benedict as the Creature in Frankenstein was outstanding and, without a doubt, one of the best performances I have seen on the London stage EVER.
