Broadway salutes James Corden

Tony Award for best actor

James Corden is the toast of Broadway after winning the Tony Award for best leading actor.

He scooped the top New York stage prize for his role in One Man, Two Guvnors, which transferred from the West End to Broadway earlier this year.

The Gavin & Stacey star choked back the tears as he picked up the award, saying he was ‘overwhelmed’ at even making the shortlist alongside the likes of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

He told 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.’

Corden also paid tribute to his fiancé Julia Carey, saying: ‘I would not be holding this if it wasn't for her.’
