Ane Dahl Torp won The Hedda Award 2012 in the category of best leading actress for the role of Shen Te inThe Good Person of Szechwan, directed by Philip Tiedemann, The Norwegian Theatre.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"This year's winner has during the past ten years interpreted highly diverse roles, serious, less serious, classic and modern. Outside of her regular theatre she has taken part in an unabashed farce, but also in a sombre documentary drama, and in addition she has found the time to become a prize-awarded movie actress. She gets the award for her nuanced, credible and thorough performance of a warm, naïve and goodhearted woman who in meeting with the harsh reality of life sees no other alternative than changing her gender. The award she gets for her excellent, convincing interpretation of Szechwan's good person Shen-Te, and her tough cousin Shui-Ta at The Norwegian Theatre.

The best leading actress award goes to Ane Dahl Torp."

Ane Dahl Torp won the memorial award of Aksel Waldemar 2014 for her efforts in The Hulder, The Norwegian Theatre.

The jury gave the following reason:

"The New Norwegian award is an award of encouragement, going to theatre workers who does an extra fine effort for New Norwegian as a language of performing arts and as such contribute to strengthen our linguistic minority culture. Rather often the award has been given to actors who through a long life onstage have gone far in perfecting their linguistic expression. Because of this it is an extra joy in this time giving the award to a rather young performer, an actress with clear opinions on and great interest for the distinctness of the stage language. Without fear she has attacked one of the greatest classics of New Norwegian, Arne Garborg's poetry cycle The Hulder, and created a modern expression for Veslemøy's imagination-bewildered love madness.

The New Norwegian Award goes to Ane Dahl Torp."

Ane Dahl Torp again won The Hedda Award 2016 in the best leading actress category for the role of Aig in Solaris corrected (The Norwegian Theatre 2015).

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"Throughout her career in Norwegian theatre, this year's winner has performed a large number of large and challenging assignments. Intellectually, emotionally and technically she has shown openness to the different genres' different qualities. The role she now receives the award for is one that she has, to a large degree, taken part in forming. In it she excels in a linguistically conscious, musical performance. She balances the universal and the characteristic, the timeless and the futurist. She shows curiosity, wonder and respect for her character, who is an androgynous everyman in a transition phase between organic life and virtual life."

Ane Dahl Torp is married to musician Sjur Miljeteig, with whom she has twice collaborated in creating theatre.
