The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award to Per Schaanning:

"This year's winner is an actor who in many contexts has proven his ability to maintain the tiny little details in which mimicry and body language may be more important than the spoken lines. The form and the content of this year's production may tempt one into overacting, but this year's supporting actor chooses to go in the opposite direction, and through underacting the over-the-top and unlikely, while being appropriately discreetly in place, he conveys the absurd situations in an everyday manner, yet with great understanding and credibility."
