Eddie Perfect on his Tony nomination and going to Anna Wintour's house
The former 'Offspring' star is in the running for the Best Original Score award
Musician and actor Eddie Perfect, 41, is nominated for Best Original Score (for musical Beetlejuice) at the Tony Awards (airs Mon., Jun. 10 at 10am; Foxtel Arts) and tells us the last …
… awards show he enjoyed The Logies. If you can’t have a good time at the Logies you’re dead inside. It’s the most fun event. I don’t think any awards ceremony will measure up to how crazy, funny, random and boozy the Logies are.
… film he saw that he felt was underappreciated I took my family to Mary Poppins Returns and we absolutely loved it. The score was incredible. I didn’t want it to end and it reminded me of how easy it is in adulthood to lose a sense of wonder at the world.
… time he ate something specifically Australian We have Vegemite in our house. I’ve discovered my favourite fusion of New York and Australia is a bagel with butter and Vegemite.

… time he spoke to a former Offspring castmate I had a beer with Rick Davies in Melbourne before I left. Oh, no, I lie – Jane Harber came to opening night of Beetlejuice!
… time he was recognised Yesterday, on the subway, three Australian women were waiting to get the train and recognised me from Offspring, so I chatted to them.
… time he felt nervous I feel like I’ve been running on nervous energy for five years. I’ve been going through nominations stuff like luncheons and press events. And I got invited to Anna Wintour’s house for a dinner party. All those things are incredibly nerve-racking.
