James Corden wins Tony Award

James CordenJames Corden has won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a leading role in a play, for his performance in One Man, Two Guvnors.

The actor beat heavyweight actors, James Earl Jones, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Frank Langella and John Lithgow to take the top Broadway award for the role he originated at the National Theatre in London.

Cordon has appeared in two episodes of Doctor Who, playing Craig Owens in the 2010 story The Lodger; a role he repeated the following year in the sequel Closing Time.

Corden gave an emotional speech thanking his fiancée Julia and paying tribute to his fellow nominees.
To be on a list with you was enough and holding this, it honestly just reminds me that there is no such thing as best. I'm overwhelmed.

My girlfriend Julia gave birth to our son like, five days before we started rehearsals. She's my baby mama, and I can't wait to marry her. Seriously, I would not be holding this if it wasn't for her. I love her. Thank you very much.
