In 1994 the pair won Oscars at the Academy Awards for the costumes in the original Stephan Elliott film.

Norbert Leo Butz.(left) won best actor for his role as an FBI agent in the play Catch Me If You Can.

Sheldon has won awards in the UK , New Zealand, Australia and Canada for his role as transsexual Bernadette in Priscilla and although the musical received moderate reviews in the US it has been a box office Broadway success.
