Or, Life Is So Sweet, I'm Sinking into a Diabetic Coma
Hot off the Ambie successes of Lyla Hay Owen and Liz Mills for their work in The Glass Menagerie, came word of the nominations for Jay Stanley's Marquee Awards for Distinguished Performance for 2009. Mr. Stanley had the critical acumen and great common sense not only to include Ms. Owen and Ms. Mills as Actress in a Drama and Supporting Actress in a Drama, but also to single out Keith Launey as Actor in a Drama and Leon Contavesprie as Supporting Actor in a Drama. That's everybody.
(In the spirit of full disclosure, I have to mention Mr. Stanley also noticed me with a nod as Director of a Drama. But then, Mr. Stanley has always been generous and kind in that way.)
Congratulations, Lyla and Liz, Keith and Leon. Although, Leon, just between us, snagging a second nomination as Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage is a tad louche, don't you think?
