Ingunn Beate Øyen won The Hedda Award 2006 in the best leading actress category for the role of King Richardin Richard II by William Shakespeare, produced by The Norwegian Theatre.
The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:
"This year's winner has interpreted a number of different roles at the theatre for which she has worked most of the time since graduating from The National Academy of Theatre. With equal competence she has interpreted classics such as Shakespeare and contemporary playwrights such as Jon Fosse. She has played mild women such as Celia in As You Like It and strong women such as Jeanne d'Arc. But she gets the award for her nuanced and convincing interpretation of a man - a powerful, yet weak and complex man.
The best leading actress award goes to Ingunn Beate Øyen for her interpretation of King Richard II at The Norwegian Theatre."
