The list goes on and on.... :) :) I'm SO happy for everyone! :) I'm in LA theatre bliss right now...Edited to add: Despite the hyper fan-ish nature of the original post, discussion in comments brought out a question I've always had about how awards committees treat two actors who, together, make up a single role (one who voices the role and one who acts the role) If anyone knows how this was handled previously in Big River, I'd be interested to know... Thanks!
