While Billy Magnussen (ex-Casey Hughes, "As The World Turns") did not win Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play for his performance as Spike in "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike," the play itself did win in the category of Best Play.

"I don't expect to get it. They usually don't give it to you two years in a row. So for me the real thing is to have been nominated and to have been acknowledged in this way, which is really an acknowledgment of this extraordinary play by Richard Greenberg.

I'm so appreciative, I really am," said Judith Light (ex-Karen Wolek, "One Life to Live") on the red carpet of the 2013 Tony Awards just moments before taking home her second Tony on Sunday, June 9. The actress won for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play for her work as Faye in "The Assembled Parties." The play also stars Jake Silbermann (ex-Noah Mayer, "As The World Turns") playing the dual role of Scotty/Tim.

But will the former soap stud be able to nab the role? You’ll have to tune in to find out!
