This means a great lot in a moment in time where maybe the most important thing that we remember right now is the sanctity of the human spirit it is the profound privilege of my life to play Prior Walter in Angels in America because he represents the purest spirit of humanity and especially that of the LGBTQ community. It is a spirit that says no to oppression. It is a spirit that says no to bigotry, no to shame, no to exclusion. It is a spirit that says we are all made perfectly and we all belong. So I dedicate this award to the countless LGBTQ people who have fought and died to protect that spirit,  to protect that message, for the right to live and love as we are created to.

So in No One Else, we see all of these individual lightbulbs. What does that do for that moment?
The core of the show has always been the simple lightbulb. And it’s a lightbulb that can turn from a lightbulb to a star to a comet. So it goes on a journey with the show.
And how many hanging lightbulbs [are there]?
998.
