Anika Noni Rose, A Raisin in the Sun - Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play
I feel so great! I feel so excited, it's really a wonderful thing. I try not to watch the announcements, but my phone was all charged up and that woke me up. I really can't even tell you the excitement I have for the cast, it's such an ensemble cast. I'm over the moon and so happy to be nominated as an actor in a straight play. It's an amazing feeling. We are very musical backstage. So, I feel like there will be some of Pharrell's "Happy" playing tonight. I'm getting my celebratory playlist together in my head already!
