Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, a fan wrote: “For @ITV to only hit #Oliviers at 10.30pm instead of primetime shows how much they prioritize their viewers. “I’m doing it,” he said furiously.

“Isn’t it ridiculous that people all over the world can watch Olivier’s full story live? But we live in the same country and can’t get the highlights after the incident happens. Please make sense.

“It’s easier to watch #Oliviers live from abroad than in the UK, this is insane.”

“Among so many @OlivierAwards winners’ speeches, these two clipped sentences fly by, which is exactly why @ITV needs to broadcast the awards ceremony in its entirety. Or Transfer your rights to a British broadcaster.

“I’m sorry, but anyone who regularly goes to British theaters and keeps all these people employed is not allowed to see the entire show. You are clearly not important to the Olivier family. .
