Is it truly a thrill "just to be nominated" for the Tony Award? That's just one of the many questions we asked 10 of this year's nominees -- including Patti LuPone, Tom Wopat, Raul Esparza, and Martha Plimpton -- the morning after they got the good news, at the annual "Meet the Nominees" event at the New York Hilton. And we got some very frank, surprising, and candid answers from these extraordinary individuals. Just have a listen!
