NAPA FF SPOTLIGHT/BEST ACTOR AWARDS

At the Napa Valley film festival Any Day Now won the audience award for Best Feature, and I won the Mount Veeder Peak Performance Prize for Favorite Actor or actress.  The best thing about this award, aside from it helping with the push towards the movie's release was that I got 24 bottles of amazing Napa Valley wine!!

Earlier at the festival I was honored with the Spotlight Tribute award, hosted by Billy Bush.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE AWARD

I was so honoured to go to Denver to receive the 2012 Making A Difference Award from the Matthew Shepard Foundation. Matt's mum, Judy Shepard, presented me with the award and I was surprised and overwhelmed by the comments she read out, collected from my family and closest friends.

The award recognizes individuals and organizations for their unwavering and longstanding leadership in working towards a world free of hate.
