Helpmann Nominations 2010 -Who made it and who didn’t will always be contentious
The Helpmann Awards 2010 nominations were announced by Live Performance Australia at the Utzon Room in Sydney’s Opera House on a night when media and theatrical guests arrived in the suitably dramatic weather that was swirling around the Harbour City.
The nominations span a formidable 42 categories for this the 10th anniversary year of the Helpmann Awards which are designed to recognize and celebrate excellence and achievement in Australian live performance. Whatever the inevitable arguments about inclusions and exclusions the nominations certainly reflect the energy and creativity that goes into an increasing number of theatre, musicals, contemporary musical, opera and ballet productions throughout Australia.
Ceremony MC, David Campbell, did a great job in steering through the nominations with humour and efficiency, allowing time for guests to discuss the nominations over drinks and nibbles as the wind continued its own breezy commentary outside.
The 2010 Helpmann Awards Ceremony will be held on Monday 6 September 2010 at the Opera Theatre, Sydney Opera House..
