The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award to Pål Rønning:

"This year's winner has, during the span of just a few years, made his mark as an actor with a wide range. He masters the art of acting for children and adults, and he flourishes as wholeheartedly in merry comedies, absurd political theatre and realistic contemporary drama. He gets the award for his presentation of two young men, who in each their way both stand outside of society, and in both roles he manages to make the borderline recognisable as well as dangerous.

The best supporting actor award goes to Pål Rønning for the roles of Anders in Guttene i skyggen* (The Shadow Boys) by Lars Norén, and Hermann Wurm in People Annihilation - or My Liver is Senseless by Werner Schwab, both at The National Stage."
