Sheila Atim's inspiring speech
She won the best actress in a supporting role in a musical, Girl from the North Country and gave one of the most inspiring speeches of the evening. “I want to acknowledge some of the women who have been on this stage before me – last year, for example, Noma Dumezweni and Amber Riley, because they’ve been here accepting awards and they look a bit like me. And that to me is very, very important.”
