La Cage aux Folles by Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) won one Hedda Award: Ingrid Nylander won The Hedda Award 2004 in the best visual design category for her costume design.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"This year's Hedda Award goes to an artist who is certain in style, in her superior understanding that theatre is also the art of the visual. She has the ability to adjust her luscious talent to highly different challenges. This the winner has proved through her convincing contributions to the most distinct productions. This year she gets the award for her determining participation in making the performance a delight to the eye, and to provide it with a freshness and an energy proving how central visual communication is to performing arts.

The award goes to Ingrid Nylander for her costumes for La Cage aux Folles at Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre)."
