Anders Baasmo Christiansen is also a movie actor and in 2004 he was awarded Amanda as the actor of the year for his role in Buddy. He has won the TV award Gullruten as best actor twice, in 2007 for his role as Henrik Ibsen in Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation's An Immortal Man, and in 2010 for his role in TV2's series Dag.

His interpretation of Hamlet at The Norwegian Touring Theatre in 2008 gave him the Hedda Award in the category of best leading actor.

The Hedda Jury reasoned as follows:

"The winner of the year is a young actor who has not only made his mark on the theatre stage, but also on the movie screen. He has already won several prestigious awards, and he gets The Hedda Award for his interpretation of one of the theatre's great classic heroes.

He brings us along on a modern journey into the mind of a young man who suddenly experiences that his world breaks down. Far from external theatricality, with deep understanding of the text, and with the energy and power we have learned to know him through, he manages to overwhelm us with new contemporaneity in the familiar lines.

The best leading actor award goes to Anders Baasmo Christiansen because he at The Norwegian Touring Theatre the autumn of 2007 created a Hamlet of today."

In 2011 he was again nominated for The Hedda Award, then in the category of best supporting actor for the role of James Tyrone Jr. in Long Day's Journey into Night. This role, too, he interpreted at The Norwegian Touring Theatre.
