What an honor!

The Tony Awards Administrators have announced that Bernadette Peters and Hugh Jackman will both be honored with some serious accolades this year at the ceremony, with the former receiving the Isabelle Stevenson Award and the latter a Special Tony Awards, which will also be recevied by the Actors’ Equity Association!

The Stevenson Award recognizes someone "who has made a substantial contribution of volunteered time and effort on behalf of one or more humanitarian, social service or charitable organizations, regardless of whether such organizations relate to the theatre," and our beloved Bernadette has been singled out for founding Broadway Barks!, which helps adopt shelter animals!

Pretty well-deserved, wouldn't U say?!

As for Hugh, well, he's pretty much the best thing to happen musicals ever, so it's no wonder he's getting honored!

Ha! We kid, as that's an unfair generalization, but still!

We know it's true in our heart!

Congrats, congrats, you guys!

    deserving of that and so much more
    .
    Beradette Peters is a super talented gal and has delivered excellence time and again on Broadway in various productions-her dedication to Braodway should be applauded
    .
    and Hugh Jackman- what can I say- another amazingly multitalented guy (sexy doesn't hurt) who with his presence on Braodway has injected a whole new life to it while attracting a whole new group of people to the theatre district
    .
    they both contribute to keeping Broadwaay alive with their dedication
    and Broadway isn't easy
    there are a lot of movie stars that don't have what it takes or will ever be brave enough to try it- live- no 20 takes to choose the best one if you don't get it right
    it takes amazing talent to submerse yourself in a role and deliver the best to each audience every performance, night after night and twice on Saturday
    can not say enough about my respect for the talent, passion and dedication of Broadway actors
