Washington And Davis Take Top Broadway Critics' Honours

DENZEL WASHINGTON and VIOLA DAVIS have been lauded for their performances in new Broadway play FENCES after taking the top acting honours at the Outer Critics Circle Awards.
The stars proved they are a force to be reckoned with on the stage and screen when they were named Outstanding Actor and Actress in a Play on Monday (17May10). Fences was also hailed as the best Outstanding Revival of a Play.
Catherine Zeta-Jones was praised for her role in A Little Night Music, sharing the Outstanding Actress in a Musical title with Memphis star Montego Glover.
Glover's accolade helped to take the hit musical's total wins to four prizes - tying with Kelsey Grammer's La Cage aux Folles, which landed the Outstanding Revival of a Musical award, while the show's other star Douglas Hodge triumphed as Outstanding Actor in a Musical.
Former Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher was also smiling when the winners were unveiled on Monday - her one-woman play Wishful Drinking scooped her the Outstanding Solo Performance prize.
The awards will be presented to the stars at a ceremony in New York on 27 May (10).
