Dan Rad Has Class About The Tonys

It's a shame that he wasn't nominated for a Tony as the headliner for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, but if anyone has ever taken a snub in stride and with a lot of class, it's Harry Potter Daniel Radcliffe.

Quite a few people were left wondering why, and many just wanted to make sure he wasn't too hurt by it. In any way, though, he has gotten more feedback from not being nominated than he ever expected. And besides, getting an award is not why he does it anyway:

“The thing that shocked me was everybody else’s reaction to me, and how they started treating me — because it was like I lost a relative. In my opinion, it was sweet, but over the top. People would ask me, ‘Are you OK?’ And I’d go, ‘I’m really OK!' I think I speak for 99 percent of actors when I say that the reason we do this job, while it’s lovely to get recognized by your peers, it’s not the reason why we do it. The people that do this job for awards and recognition are kind of worshiping at the wrong altar, and I’m not really quite sure if I want to know those people.”

We think that's spot on, for sure. People who are in theater just to win awards are in it for the the wrong reason! It's all about the love and passion for the show and craft.

Dan, we're super proud of you for reacting this way. We'll be honest though, we would never guess you would act any other way but proper!

Maybe next year!

    This guy is such a class act and we are so lucky to have him on Broadway. He totally deserved the nomination, but I'm sure we will see Daniel trotting the boards in the years to come…. The only positive thing about Daniel not getting nominated, is that Tony Sheldon has a shot at winning!!

    perez you really are a hypocrite, so you respect and admit its classy and great to be in it for the craft and the passion yet you cream over brittney and gaga who are in it for the FSME and money and attention hmmmmmm

    good for him, it is sickening here in NY that all THESE HOLLYWOOD PEOPLE fly out here, appear for a month or two, and get a tony nom, and often the TONY! Who is voting??? THERE ARE SOOO MANY DISTINGISHED BROADWAY ACTORS! But, it has to be about the publicity! Something like that! Ratings for the award show? 'NO ONE IS GOING TO WATCH UNLESS THERE ARE NAMES, GIVE US NAMES!!! ' So, voters are PUSHED to vote for names. In the end, again, IT IS ALL ABOUT $$$$$$$$$$

    The Brits generally aren't self-entitled. His is NORMAL behavior.

    I don't think he got snubbed. He did a great job but, there far too many that did a better job. It was just a year of great actors and far superior singers on broadway.
