TULSA, Oklahoma -- Oklahoma native Kristen Chenoweth received a big award in Tulsa Sunday.

"I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to receive this. It's the very first distinguished artist award that the Tate Awards are giving me. I am so honored because it comes from Oklahoma," Chenoweth said.

The Tulsa Awards for Theatre Excellence held its first ever awards ceremony Sunday night.

Chenoweth taped her acceptance from OK Mozart in Bartlesville where she performed in the big finale.

She said she hopes to come back and present next year's winner the award in person.
