  • More 'Tony Reactions' have been recorded by Jennifer Ehle's account is roughly the same as the one posted by (see previous post) although she sounds slightly more discombobulated in this one. Endearingly so, of course!
    We were driving home from upstate, and I suddenly got two emails on my Blackberry with people saying congratulations. Then enough came through that I realized exactly what was going on. I don't remember exactly what I said. I was with my family. Told my husband, 'I've been nominated for a Tony!' I wrote back asking for who else. It's so exciting there's so many of us from the cast — only an idiot would ever think it would happen. That would be a ridiculous way to live, expecting anything like this to happen. I think I'm in a state of shock. I don't think I'm making much sense. But I'm in a state of shock anyway 'cause we just closed [although] it feels like the show hasn't closed yet. I know I'm going to be seeing a lot of people over the next month and we'll still be celebrating. It's extraordinary [that the show] was even put on at all. It's such a thrill. It's lovely. You get to go to the ball.

  • Getting back to the Tonys, we've gone from predicting the nominees to predicting the winners. Katie and Chazwaza of All That Chat as well as Linda and Popcultureboy of blogland predict that Jennifer Ehle will be victorious. Cross your fingers!
