Yeah, I thought Leigh Ann Larkin might win, though I've read a lot of complaints about her on this board lately. Oh well.
I think it's kind of absurd that Daniel Evans did not get the award, I actually preferred him over Jenna Russell.
de'Adre Aziza is getting lots of love this week, good for her.
So I'm guessing Amy Morton wasn't eligible?
Congrats to all the winners.

Loretta Ables Sayre is my favorite new actress of the season.

I'm so happy to see her get some much deserved accolades.

I guess I thought it was only for Broadway performances.

Daniel Evans has been on Broadway before...he was Lysander in A Midsummer Night's Dream.

I'm kind of surprised neither Claire Danes nor Jennifer Garner got one.

That's so exciting and such a great list of performers. I'm especially happy for Daniel Breaker, Jenna Russel, Alli Mauzey and Loretta Able Sayre.

And congrats to de'Adre Aziza for more great recognition for her work. This must be such an exciting week for her!
