The award is given to "a veteran male and female character actor for the best performance in a supporting role in a Broadway or Off-Broadway production."

Maloney was cited for his performance in the Broadway production of John Patrick Shanley’s Outside Mullingar. Winningham was recognized for her Broadway performance in Harvey Fierstein’s Casa Valentina, for which she also received a Tony nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Play.

Equity member Richard Seff established this award in 2003. Previous recipients include Tom Aldredge, Reed Birney, Larry Bryggman, Lynn Cohen, Jim Dale, Hallie Foote, Jayne Houdyshell, Dana Ivey, Patrick Page, Laila Robins and, in 2013, Kristine Nielsen and Lewis J. Stadlen.

The presentation — a check and crystal trophy — will take place at Equity’s Eastern Regional Board meeting June 10 at Equity’s office.

The judges’ panel included Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News; Adam Feldman, Time Out New York; Susan Haskins, Theater Talk; Harry Haun, Playbill; and David Rosenberg, The Hour Newspapers.
