It’s a good season for Helen. Not only does she continue her reign at New York’s theatre awards for her performance in “The Audience”, The World Jewish Congress has also honored her with the WJC Recognition Award for her role in “Woman in Gold” and for helping to educate the public about the issues of Nazi-looted art. A ceremony date has not been announced, but pictures from yesterday’s Drama Desk Awards and Stephen Daldry’s 2015 Tony Nomination Celebration have been added to the photo gallery.

Helen’s a winner these days, picking up an Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Actress in a Play, as well as the Broadway.com Audience Choice Award as Favorite Actress in a Play, both for “The Audience”. Let’s hope this is the road to the Tonys 🙂 Pictures from both events have been added to the photo gallery. And just in time for her current success on Broadway, Helen’s theatre work will be spotlighted and updated throughout the next weeks.

Congratulations to Helen Mirren for receiving a Tony Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for “The Audience”. She shares the category with Geneva Carr (Hand to God), Elisabeth Moss (The Heidi Chronicles), Carey Mulligan (Skylight) and Ruth Wilson (Constellations). “The Audience” has received a total of three nominations, including Richard McCabe for Best Actor in a Play and Bob Crowley for Best Costume Design of a Play. This is Helen’s third Tony Award nomination – for her third Broadway play. She has received previous nominations for “A Month in the Country” in 1995 and for “Dance of Death” in 2002. So maybe third’s the lucky charm. The Tony Awards are handed out during a live ceremony on June 7, 2015.
