Judith Ivey, nominated for BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A FEATURED ROLE IN A PLAY for THE HEIRESS
"My agent called to tell me. I was preparing for our builder to work on our new apartment and I forgot about that happening today. So, it was a pleasant surprise. It's always flattering- the Tony is the iconic award, in the same way the Oscar is. This is is my 4th nomination and it's equally exciting. It's been a while so it's very reassuring. My daughter is coming over for dinner with me and my husband tonight and she is in many ways responsible for this because I had another job and she said "Mother, you're fool if you don't do this.""
