The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award to Mari Hauge Einbu:

"Actors continuously has to submit to new and demanding direction concepts. This year's winner is faithful to a demanding direction, while standing markedly out. Not only does she show impressive technical aptitude with extraordinary precision, she also manages to create a character with depth and inner life. With intense stage presence she transforms an old-fashioned acting style into a modern one, and with this she lifts the whole production into the 21th century."
