Olivier Awards: Could Hamilton get a record haul?

Hip-hop musical Hamilton could set a new record when it rocks up at the Olivier Awards on Sunday night.

Terera plays Hamilton's nemesis Aaron Burr in the show, which opened in London last year after enjoying huge success in New York.

Three of the show's Olivier nominations come in the same category - best supporting actor in a musical - meaning that the most awards it can actually win is 10.

Stephen Sondheim's Follies, performed at the National Theatre, has 10 nominations. These include two nods in the best actress in a musical category, where Imelda Staunton and Janie Dee go head to head.

Four-time Olivier winner Staunton gets another nomination in the best actress category for her role in Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?

Her competition includes Lesley Manville, for Long Day's Journey into Night, Audra McDonald for Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill, and Laura Donnelly for The Ferryman.

Jez Butterworth's The Ferryman has a handful of nominations, including one for best new play - in which it competes against Ink, Network and Oslo.

Paddy Considine is nominated for best actor for the Royal Court play, which transferred to the Gielgud, alongside Bryan Cranston for Network, Andrew Scott for Hamlet and Andrew Garfield for Angels in America.

Catherine Tate is hosting the awards at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Sunday's event will see David Lan receive a special award for his artistic directorship of the Young Vic.
