Where was Linda Lavin?#3
Posted: 5/12/03 at 9:13am
She should have gotten a nomination for "Hollywood Arms!" I'm glad to see that Michelle Pawk was nominated, but Linda did a phenominal job in her role, and it's a crime that she was not nominated.

Tony nominations#5
Posted: 5/12/03 at 9:49am
What a fun morning. Several thoughts:
1) I think HAIRSPRAY got more noms than PRODUCERS (they got 12 and won every one...HAIRSPRAY wont)
2) Oversights in Actress categories: Linda Lavin, Edie Falco, Emily Skinner, Cherry Jones, Swoosie Kurtz, Jenn Colella, Sally Mayes all should have been recognized
3)Oversights in Actor categories: Leo Burmester, Matt Cavenaugh,
Stephen Spinella (choir director in Our Town), the gentleman who plays the snail in FROG AND TOAD (sorry I forgot his name), the alcholic father in HOLLYWOOD ARMS (forgot his name too), and of course Frank Gorshin (congrats to Paul Newman !!!!!!!)
4) Special congrats to Donald Holder for his well deserved Lighting nomination for MOVING OUT (really made the show work !)
5) Joe Mantello and Jack O'Brien should win the Director Awards
6) Bernadette's nomination is enough; give award to someone else
7)FLOWER DRUM SONG'S new book made no sense w/the music !!!!!
Tony nominationsGive Harvey the award right now and save the others the wait
Would love to hear other folks reactions to noms...start typing
My view of overlooked and a sure winner

The father in "Hollywood Arms" I believe was played by Frank Wood? That was such an excellent play; it's a shame it had such a short run. Re: Tony nominations
I totally agree about Harvey...it will be the shock of Tony night if he doesn't win. I wonder if he will go as Harvey or Edna (he did both at the Grammy's).
I disagree about Bernadette. We all knew she would be nominated, but I believe she will be very deserving if she wins. I think she portrays Mama Rose in a wonderul new way; though, if Marissa wins it won't be a huge shock. Those 2 are the definite front runners. Anyone else winning in that category would be a surprise.

Christine over Emily? What??#9
Posted: 5/12/03 at 8:38pm
In the words of my darlin' Robbie... HOW could Christine "Where am i? Who am i? Why am i?" Ebersole get a nom over Emily?! Unjust, I tell ya. Emily was robbed. I knew she wouldn't get a nom, but I still was hoping.

I was also upset Kerry Butler was snubbed.

Frank Gorshin#11

I was astonished that Say Goodnight, Gracie was nominated for Best Play, but that Frank Gorshin's glorious performance was not. What a pity. He is great. You don't ever not believe that he's not really George Burns. If you are in NYC, DON'T MISS IT!

Hurray for Michele and John. Well deserved nominations there!. However I would have liked to see Michi up leading actress and Donna Lynne Champlin up for Featured actress. DL's performance in HA was superb -- and I find Louise (Michi's character) much more of a leading role than featured. Ah well, this is me beating a dead horse with a closed show lol
