    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. Written by Christopher Durang, "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" tells the story of Vanya (David Hyde Piece, "Frasier") and Sonia (Kristine Nielsen,"Political Animals") and Masha (Sigourney Weaver, "Political Animals") and Spike (Magnussen), who together turn a generally quiet household into a standing circus full of intrigue and super fun.
