This morning’s Tony nominations were kind of weird. Weird in the sense that a lot of the expected big names were ignored for the star of that Kathie Lee Gifford musical.
To be fair, though, the Tony nominations are often weird. Some years, they go for Hollywood stars; other years, they honor industry veterans who slaved for decades before they finally made it on the Great White Way.
That was kind of what happened this year. Which is great news for the Broadway community (you get that Tony, Amy Morton!), but probably bad news for the CBS execs who were hoping for a star-studded lineup. Hey, you can always get Katie Holmes to present!
Below, check out the notable names who won’t be up for a Tony this year.
Oh, Bette. You’ll always have Rochelle, Rochelle.
