As the Distinguished Performance Award can only be awarded to an individual once in an artist’s lifetime, the League gave special recognition to six former recipients who appeared in productions this year but were deemed ineligible: Stockard Channing (Apologia), Glenn Close (Mother of the Maid), Glenda Jackson (King Lear), Cherry Jones (The Lifespan of a Fact), Nathan Lane (Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus), John Lithgow (Hillary and Clinton), Stephen Rea (Cyprus Avenue).
