As I explained in my first Best of Tucson blog of the season, we're changing things up a bit this year and ignoring votes for nonlocal institutions. As "local" is now implied in every category, we removed the descriptor from many of the category titles‚ including Best (Local) Actor.
But APPARENTLY the message didn't quite sink in because, among a handful of nominations for our incredible local performers, we've received a barrage of votes for Hollywood actors.
To my knowledge, Will Smith and Seth Rogan weren't in the latest Gaslight Theatre production.
Go see some local shows, pay attention to the cast list and come back and vote for whomever blows you away.
Blake Lively is not going to be the Best of Tucson Best Actor. Try again.
