We loved her so much asEvangeline Williamson One Life to Live – who can forget when Vang went blind …  or her love story with John McBain (Michael Easton), or her intriguing relationship with town bad boy Todd Manning (Trevor St. John)?

The woman who made that story work so well is now a Tony Award nominee! Of course we are talking about the multi-talented Renee Elise Goldsberry, who has been killing it every night in the Pulitzer Prize winning musical Hamilton on BroadwayOn Tuesday, Goldsberry got the news that she is a Tony nominee for her performance.  As well Hamilton came away with 16 nominations the most in Tony Award history.

In the cutest moment of the morning, Renee posted a photo of herself with her daughter on Instagram expressing:  “Watched the Tony noms with my baby girl this morning! I am so grateful for her and for all of God’s perfect blessings! I am so humbled by this nomination. And I am high on all this love…”

Goldsberry is nominated in the Best Featured Actress in a Musical category and will go up against another former soaper, Jane Krakoswki (Ex- Search For Tomorrow) nominated for She Loves Me.  But the One Life to Live love does not stop there, the extremely-talented Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry) was also nominated for his role in Hamilton for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.    For the complete list of Tony nominations click here.

    Congratulations to Renee. She did a super job as the wonderful Evangeline Williamson on our beloved One Life to Live. I loved Evangeline and John McBain together. They were on fire. And it was such a special treat when she sang. Her voice is just beautiful. Crossing my fingers for her Tony win.

    This is FANTASTIC news!!! Congratulations, Renee! It’s wonderful that she’s doing so well on Broadway. I hope she wins the Tony!

    John McBain and Evangeline Williamson were by far the BEST couple that daytime had seen in long time! Michael Easton and Renee Goldsberry portrayed their characters with such heart. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for OLTL and JoVan!

    So talented! Loved her on OLTL, and she was excellent (but underused) in The Good Wife. I think she is a lock to win the Tony for “Hamilton”!

    So happy for this beautiful, talented young lady. She always shined bright on OLTL. Was lucky enough to see her in the original ” The Color Purple” and “Rent”. A gifted singer and actress.
