EDIT 2/23/15: On the eve of the ceremony, 2/20/15, I opened with the tragic news that Ben Woolf, an actor best known for his role in American Horror Story but who had also acted in Golden Rake entry Dead Kansas, was in critical condition after being hit by a car on the evening of 2/19. It is now confirmed that Ben did not pull through. It greatly grieves me to hear of this young, talented actor’s life cut short. As such, I would like to retroactively dedicate the Golden Rake Award 2014 to Ben Woolf.
May you rest in peace.
