a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

There is rejoicing and crying, as usual on Broadway, this morning as the Tony Nominations were announced. “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” which I’m seeing for the SECOND time tomorrow got the lion’s share of the nominations with 10. Daniel Radcliffe and Denzel Wasington were both left out of the Best Actor cateories, though both were nominated for Drama Desk Awards. And the lists of exclusions, snubs and overlooks is too long to go into here, but let’s accentuate the positive and include of all those who DID get nominated this morning. Here’s the complete list !
