Renate Reinsve won The Hedda Award 2014 in the best supporting actress category for the role of the teacher in The Visit by Friedrich Dürrenmatt, directed by Tyra Tønnessen, produced by Trøndelag Theatre.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"In a production with an expansive role gallery all performers should preferably be clear and complete persons. But to achieve good ensemble play, it is also important that no character becomes more than the role intends. This is an extremely fine balance, and it is mastered to the full by this year's award winner.

In this absurd, but still pretty realistic performance people are confronted with existential challenges, and from being great humanists and principled in their choices, we see how they, one by one, give in to money and pragmatism. This gradual metamorphosis is presented with particularly great identification, clarity, comical talent and Fingerspitzengefühl by the award winner.

This year's best supporting actress award goes to Renate Reinsve."

Renate Reinsve was nominated for The Hedda Award 2015 in the best supporting actress category for the role of Maja Rubek in When we dead awaken, Trøndelag Theatre in 2014.

Among her other roles is the role of Rita Allmers in Little Eyolf (Trøndelag Theatre 2015).

Renate Reinsve played the role of Frøya in Robert Wilson's Edda at The Norwegian Theatre in 2017. The Hedda Award 2017 in the special artistic achievement category was given to the complete ensemble of actors in the production.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award to the Edda ensemble:

"Certain assignments demand a more dedicated approach than others. Intense concentration. Detail-oriented precision. Finely tuned musicality. This year's award in the special artistic achievement category goes to an ensemble of actors who met and who mastered such an assignment with force and conviction. Some of them had experience with the same director and the same expression from former work. Some entered the work with openness and a will to learn. Together they succeeded in creating one of this year's most grandiose and most coherently stylistic performing arts experiences."
