|Helen Mirren Nominated for British Theatre Olivier Award|
The 67-year-old actress is in the running for Best Actress at next month's annual British theatre awards for her role as the queen in the popular play, 'The Audience.'
The talented actress - who won Best Actress at the Oscars and a BAFTA for her portrayal of Elizabeth II in the film 'The Queen' in 2007 - faces stiff competition from rivals Hattie Morahan for her role in 'A Doll's House,' singer-turned-actress Billie Piper for 'The Effect' and Kristin Scott Thomas for 'Old Times'.
Helen has played three different queens during her career and is the only actress to ever portray both Queen Elizabeth's on screen.
The Best Actor nominees include Rupert Everett for 'The Judas Kiss', James McAvoy for 'Macbeth', Mark Rylance for 'Twelfth Night', Rafe Spall for 'Constellations' and Luke Treadaway for 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.'
A panel of theatre professionals will choose most of the winners of the Olivier Awards, who will be announced during a black-tie ceremony at London's Royal Opera House on April 28.
The winner of the Audience Award will be decided by a public vote, the nominees for which include 'Billy Elliot', 'Matilda: The Musical', 'The Phantom of the Opera' and 'Wicked'.
