The fact she managed to get a (MOST WELL DESERVED) nomination for BONNIE & CLYDE deserves it's own thread. I'm so thrilled for her!

That was the nomination this morning that made me the happiest! She was so good in it, just wish the show was nominated over Leap of Faith so she could've performed.

Cheers,

Congratulations :). It must feel so good to be her right now. Her career seems to have been progressing exponentially lately. I hope that she will return to the Broadway stage soon in a successful star vehicle.

I am very excited for Laura. She has come a long way since GREASE: YTOTIW on NBC... she has truly made a career for herself that is only going to continue progressing with new characters to discover. She is truly a talent. Really wish this show was nominated over LEAP OF FAITH because then Jeremy could perform with Laura, regardless of whether he was nominated for NEWSIES or B&C.

I saw her on the subway and she was VERY SWEET to the queens who were chatting it up with her.

THRILLED for her! Her career has taken off recently, and I'm sure this is a pleasant surprise for her after how short the run of the show was. Even though it's for NEWSIES, exciting to see her & Jordan both nominated this year.

Hooray!!!

I remember after the first preview of Bonnie & Clyde my first post on here was that Laura Osnes will win the Tony for best Actress in a musical! She's got what it takes!

I'm so happy for her!
(And JEREMY!! AND Frank Wildhorn!! and everyone involved in ONCE!)

Well deserved. Laura was great. She should also win for this year's best abs. The guy from Ghost comes in a close second.

I'm so happy for Laura. Bummed that B&C didn't get Best Musical nom and that Melissa didn't Featured, though.

What are the chances Laura Osnes could perform "How 'bout a Dance" at the Tony Awards? B&C wasn't nominated, but neither was the Legally Blonde tour. It would be a great way to showcase the score of B&C and her performance.

If they let B&C perform, I'd love to see her do Dyin' Ain't So Bad. I think it's a thrilling song, and she just soars on it.

Cheers,

Seeing as I'm SURE they'll let SPIDER-MAN do something, it would be nice if Laura got to sing. But that won't be happening.

SO thrilled for her. I still renember on the preview thread where no on though she would get nominated! So unexpected, but she really deserves it. Too bad Bonnie and Clyde didn't get nominated over Leap of Faith.

Congrats to Laura!!!! It's great to see someone so classy, talented and deserving be nominated. It has been such a pleasure to have followed her career since her first performance on the Grease reality show. The ways that she is developing her talents and her career are simply exemplary. So wonderful to see great things happen to a great person. You go, girl!

I'm very happy for her, but it is sort of bittersweet for me. She is one of the most talented singers and actresses right now on Broadway and she is a very classy and down-to-earth person. This sort of makes up for her being snubbed last year for playing Hope Harcourt in 'Anything Goes', but I really felt that she deserved a nomination more for that role instead of her role in 'Bonnie and Clyde'.

So excited!!!!

I remember last year when the nominations were announced some people thought she was robbed by not being nominated for Anything Goes. I recall saying that it wasn't her year and 2012 would be. I'll have to try to find that thread later.
