Wow! Judith has won the Tony and deservedly so. She is such a force in the acting world. I have watched her in every show she was on. Unfortunatly, I have not seen her on Broadway, but on Law and Order as a Judge and Ugly Betty. Congrats Judith!….

Judith Light…. she is such a “lauded” actress. Congratulations. What I herald Ms. Light for… is her continued support for giving voice to LGBT advocacy. She’s a front runner.. in that, she’s been helping people for years… like, all her life. Kudos to stepping up to the plate. Sincere thank you… for giving time to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community.

I loved you on Ugly Betty!

Judith Light, to me, is the personification of a capital A Actress, and this award is so deserving, especially in such a acclaimed production of an acclaimed play with other A-listers! More than 30 years later and Light’s Karen Wolek performance on the stand still resonates and is remembered, not for shock value but for the truth and honesty she gave that character on ONE LIFE TO LIVE. She is one who truly completes her characters, even her Angela on the sitcom WHO’S THE BOSS? was played on levels that were beyond the material. Congratulations, Judith Light!

I’m happy for Judith Light but a wish she would go eat a burger! She’s too skinny! All her bones are showing! Doesn’t she own a mirror?
