James Monroe Iglehart, Aladdin - Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical
I'm trying to figure out a word that is more than excited... ecstatic- that's the word! I'm ecstatic. I was watching the announcement with my wife and with our cat in between us. I had no idea of what my reaction would be. I really thought that I would probably get up and scream but instead I just crumpled up and cried. This just means so much to me. The first time I watched the Tony Awards I was 17 years old, so this is... well excuse the cliché, but it's a wish come true.
