Skylight scored 7 Tony Award Nominations including Best Actress for Carey Mulligan!

Golden Globe, BAFTA (including a Best Actress win for her in An Education 2009 film), an Oscar, and now we can add Tony Award nominee Carey Mulligan (who knew our dear Kitty Bennet, the 4th Bennet daughter, whose first feature film debut was Joe Wright's Pride & Prejudice film would be a successful actress on screen and onstage and be a multi-acting award nominee a decade later?). This morning, the nominations for 2015 Tony Awards has been announced and Carey's currently playing revival play Skylight, which was recently transferred to Broadway from the West End in London just scored a total of 7 nominations including Best Revival Play and Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play for Miss Mulligan.

Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming will host the 69th Annual Tony Awards on June 7 at 8/7c on CBS.

"I couldn't be more thrilled for our cast, incredible director and ingenious creative team. I watched my first Broadway play at 14 and pictured myself up on that stage. For it not only to become a reality but then to be so generously and warmly accepted by this community is nothing short of a dream come true and is truly humbling."
