Torbjørn Eriksen won The Hedda Award 2012 in the best supporting actor category for the role of Orin in Mourning Becomes Electra, directed by Eirik Stubø, The Norwegian Theatre.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"For almost a decade this year's winner has proven himself onstage, in Oslo and elsewhere. He excels in using an as instinctive as intellectual approach to the characters he plays. Hence he makes them into live, complex beings. He also has the ability to listen, and with it, surefire, exciting interaction between him and his fellow actors is created.

He gets the award for his nuanced, moving interpretation of a young man who is split between hatred and love, vengeance and the deepest of guilt.

The best supporting actor award goes to Torbjørn Eriksen for his interpretation of Orin Mannon in Mourning Becomes Electra at The Norwegian Theatre."

Torbjørn Eriksen won The Hedda Award 2015 in the best leading actor category for the title role in Hamlet, directed by Kjersti Horn for Rogaland Theatre (2014). The production also won the award in the production of the year category, and Horn was nominated in the best direction category.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award to Eriksen:

"A male leading role often has the power of definition in the production. That is in particularly large degree the case with this year's award winner, who with his intense presence gives particular credibility to the role. He addresses the audience directly, and with a combination of sincerity and anger, he gives surprising topicality to the content. Without compromising and with simplicity he conveys an expansive and complicated text, giving the words weight and clarity through reflection and hesitating pensiveness.

This year's best leading actor award goes to Torbjørn Eriksen."
