This is super random but I was watching the acceptance clip of Madeline Kahn winning the Tony in 1993 and realized that Natasha Richardson and Lynn Redgrave were nominated in the same category. Being that Lynn is Natasha's aunt, I wondered if any other relatives been nominated in the same category and same year? Or is this the one lone example?

If you're including married spouses, I can think of Michele Pawk (HOLLYWOOD ARMS) and John Dossett (GYSPY) in 2003 &Tracy Letts and Carrie Coon last year.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

I still remember Rosemary Harris looking surprisingly pissed off that her daughter her beat her! Isn't that like, vicariously winning a Tony at least?

When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad
