Who Will Get Tony Nominations? Only I Know--Or Care
I know I'm the only one within miles who gives a rat's ass about this, especially so early in the game, but please humor me as I put out my predictions for my favorite Tony awards category, Best Actress in a Musical. (Come on, please! This can't really harm anyone and it'll make me feel so good.) It's shaping up as a real wowser category, even better than last year when Christine Ebersole beat Audra McDonald and three other indestructible divas. This time, the nominees will surely be (drumroll): Patti LuPone, Gypsy (Ben Brantley raved! Yay!); Kelli O'Hara, South Pacific; Faith Prince, A Catered Affair; Jenna Russell, Sunday in the Park With George; and Kerry Butler, Xanadu. I am so dead sure about these picks that I'm willing to suggest a very special can't-harm-anyone offer: If I'm wrong, you can buy me lunch to make me feel better.
