The 18th Annual Lawscars

The Academy (3L)

Cave of Wonders – try Cave of Talent. That’s what U of A Law is, yup. Alawddin featured Jafar, Iago, and minions (what?!?). The Academy announces its winners for Law Show 2014.

Best Actor in a Leading Role (Male): Cobi Dayan. Killed it again. It was the perfect amount of ASS: awkwardness, sweetness, and sass.

Best Actor in Another Leading Role (Male): Keerit Jutla. Nuff said.

Best Surprise Breakout Actor: Iwan Davies. He dedicated himself to Spiderman – the guy wore spandex on stage for gawd’s sake. He deserves a shout-out.

Honourable mentions: The three elves: Paul Kolida, Jon Watson, and Luke Johnson. Hi-ho indeed.

Best Actor in a Lead Role (Female): Andrea “VOLUME” Steen as Jasmine. Jasmine has never looked better as a blonde!
