The 2013 Tony Award nominees were announced yesterday morning, and amid the long list of names, one majestic pair of dimples stood out above the rest. Actor Tom Sturridge (a.k.a Sienna Miller’s boho British fiancé) was nominated in the Best Actor category for his performance as Phillip in Orphans. We’re surprised that he was able to hide his serious, brooding face from the limelight when the infamous Orphans-related Shia LaBeouf–versus–Alec Baldwin Twitter brawl exploded on the Internet in February, but his elusiveness seems to have worked to his benefit. Regarding the nomination, he said, "I feel an inexplicable mingling of disbelief and delight. It is an honor beyond words ... A very beautiful day." For a very beautiful man. We hope he celebrates properly by buying some more fedoras to perch atop his long, chestnut mane.
