Over the coarse of his career, he was awarded two Tony Awards for his performances on Broadway, received an Academy nomination for Best Actor for his role in "The Guardsman" (1931) and received an Emmy Award for his role in TV's "Hallmark Hall of Fame" productions of "The Magnificent Yankee" (1965).
