West End show The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time looks set to dominate Britain's upcoming Olivier Awards after landing eight nominations.
The production, an adaptation of Mark Haddon's best-selling novel about a teenage mathematician with behavioural difficulties, has been tipped for Best New Play and Best Actor for its lead Luke Treadaway, among other categories.
Treadaway faces tough competition from Rupert Everett (The Judas Kiss), James MCAvoy (MACbeth), Mark Rylance (Twelfth Night) and Rafe Spall (Constellations).
Dame Helen Mirren has been named in the Best Actress category for her turn as Queen Elizabeth Ii in The Audience, and will fight it out with Billie Piper (The Effect), Kristin Scott Thomas (Old Times), and Hattie Morahan (A Doll's House).
Stephen Daldry is in the running for Best Director for The Audience, and he goes up against Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Jeremy Herrin (This House) and Simon MCBurney (The Master and Margarita).
New musical Top Hat is also a big contender with seven nominations, while Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street has six.
The winners will be revealed during a prizegiving in London on 28 April (13).
