EW‘s managing editor Jess Cagle made the announcement on this morning’s episode of Good Morning America, and had this to say about the decision to choose Dan as the Entertainer of the Year:
“Ultimately there was one person who made the most sense,” Cagle said of the 22-year-old triple threat. “There’s nothing he can’t do. He’s really interested in doing the work. Despite all his wealth and fame as a teenager, he never derailed.”
How to Succeed wins top Fundraiser in the 23rd Annual Gypsy of the Year Competition
Dan and the company of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying won Top Fundraiser (Broadway Musical) in this year’s Gypsy of the Year competition, raising an impressive $325,935 during the six-week long fundraising period that has raised $4,895,253 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. Dan also wrote How to Succeed‘s song-and-dance number, showcasing the commitment required to get through eight shows a week and not miss a performance, though he didn’t take part due to BAFTA NY hosting ‘An Evening With Daniel Radcliffe’ on Monday.
Tuesday saw Dan take to the stage with fellow presenters Hugh Jackman (whose one man show raised an astounding $857,740, earning him a special award) and Bernadette Peters to present the awards to top fundraisers.
