Wow! Two MORE FANTASTIC Tony Award firsts!
And two absolutely gorgeous, touching acceptance speeches!
Steve Kazee just took home the 2012 Best Performance By An Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his incredible work in Once, and in an absolutely heartwrenching and beautiful acceptance speech, thanked his cast and crew for helping him stay strong after the passing of his mother.
Just so incredibly moving.
Directly afterward, James Corden won the Best Performance By An Actor in a Leading Role in a Play for his work in One Man, Two Guvnors, and gave an equally touching, if not entirely different, thank you to his fellow nominees, as well as his fiances!
Ch-ch-check out both speeches (above)!
We're all choked up!
Well-deserved, both you! Congrats!
