Best Stage Villain 

Paul Floriano, Pack of Lies

We're all magnetically attracted to the villain, whether it's an over-the-top Cruella De Vil or the goofy Russian nasties who tormented Rocky and Bullwinkle. So of course, actors adore playing black hats whenever they can. Paul Floriano got his chance as the quietly despicable British intelligence officer Stewart in Cesear's Forum's Pack of Lies, twirling his mustache to great effect. Using his softly modulated voice like a velvet garrote, he strangled the life out of an ordinary English suburban woman, who found herself in the midst of an espionage caper and on the receiving end of the year's most awesomely villainous portrayal.
