Best Actress 

Martha Wilkinson

It wasn't a prolific year for Wilkinson as far as quantity was concerned, but her brilliant performance in Tennessee Rep's production of Sweeney Todd once more stamped her as a local treasure. She's an incredibly versatile actress, and her turn as Mrs. Lovett brought lushness to a somewhat cartoonish character—delivering jokes with coquettish charm, ratcheting up the drama when pertinent and singing with high class. It was quite possibly the apex of her already distinguished Nashville career—so far. MARTIN BRADY
