"Wow, I'm up first," Rylance said as he collected his statuette for Best Featured Actor in a Play at the Radio City Music Hall ceremony. "Thank you so much for your generosity. We had such a ball playing Shakespeare here in the city."

Rylance also portrayed the title character in the drama, Richard III.
