Hollywood Stars Expected to Slay at the Tony Awards
Broadway has seen it’s fair share of Hollywood actors and actress, but this year was a big year full of them.
Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Play has two very-big film favorites including Bradley
Cooper (The Elephant Man) and Bill Nighy (Skylight).
Hollywood women seem to have swept all except one of the nominations for Best Actress In a Leading Role in a Play.
The only non-Hollywood nom is actress Geneva Carr up of her role in Hand of God. She told broadway.com "The Tony nomination is crazy! The night before, I said to my husband, ‘These are gossip columns and wish lists. It’s not going to happen. Let’s go to bed. The dream is over.’ The next morning, we were watching and screaming!”
I got to hand it to the girl, she’s facing some steep competition. She’s up against some fabulous actresses like Helen Mirren (The Audience), Ruth Wilson (Constellations), and
Carey Mulligan (Skylight). Talk about a Hollywood star-studded crew.
While stage actors and actresses dominated the musical nominations, some Hollywood stars were also on the musical list! Though Vanessa Hudgens (Gigi) did not make the nominations.
It’s clear that Hollywood stars are out to slay at the 2015 Tony Awards!
