Michael Cumpsty, Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play for END OF THE RAINBOW
"It's wonderful. Very excited. I was woken up with the news so I didn't even have to get nervous, which was nice. But since I found out it's a whirlwind - my phone and Facebook page and email have been blowing up with hundreds of messages, some from people I haven't heard from in several years. But my agent says that my first order of business is to get myself cleaned up so I supposed I have to go out and buy some new clothes today!"
