Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
“I’m still surprised. My mom was calling me all morning and I kept yelling at my phone for my mom to stop calling me. I wanted to sleep in. I had no idea [the nominations were coming out today]. I have a headache; I went out last night. That was so silly. I didn’t get any of the other awards, so I was like ‘Oh, I’m done.’ It is exciting! It’s honestly an honor. [I’m excited] for my parents coming up; I miss them. I’m finishing my breakfast now, and then I’m going to the gym. I work out a lot for this play. I've still got a show to do!”
