I suspect that what is going on is that you are a drama queen, and the nominating peoples just liked the other people better. ^_^

She didn't get nominated because she didn't deserve one among the possible nominees. She will likely get a Tony nom for her work in Xanadu. Get over it.

Who is Kerry Butler? Wasn't she on AMERICAN IDOL? Who does she play in XANADU?

Two of the nominees are from off-Broadway shows so it's fairly certain she'll get a Tony nomination. For fans of the show, it sucks, but at least Cheyenne got nominated.

Awards-shmwards. If she gets 'em, GREAT! If not, it doesn't take away from her talent nor fanbase.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

sorry, I just really love her as a performer - I think she is brilliant and especially so with what she has done for Xanadu

Either I don't know how to count, or you don't know what's on Broadway vs. off Broadway. Jenna, Faith, Kelli, Patti, and Sierra are all Broadway. Alice Ripley is the only off-Broadway actress on the list, and the Tonys only nominate 5, not 6. For Kerry to get a nod, somebody needs to get bounced. I would love to see Sierra get left off for Kerry.

I screwed up...I read the list too fast and thought the last two were Off-Broadway.

My bad.

Well, while I do think she deserved it over Sierra Boggess, her not getting nominated isn't exactly some sort of travesty. Even if she does get the Tony nomination everybody seems to think she deserves, she hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of winning. She shouldn't, at least.

I don't think Kerry Butler is as funny as she thinks she is. Maybe others felt the same way?

She was excellent and hysterical in HAIRSPRAY. Everything else, just mediocre.

Maybe its because she sings through her nose?

Great girl. Bad nasal singing. That's just me.

Well, the reason it is kinda absurd that she got snubbed is because Sierra what's-her-name got nominated for LITTLE MERMAID. They should just have nominated Jodi Benson since Boggess just does a carbon copy of Benson's beautiful voice performance in the film.

Yes, but Sierra is remarkable n Act 2 and has a lovely voice. I love Kerry and XANADU, but MERMAID is just something I'm emotionally attached to.

I think Sierra is only a carbon copy of Benson in "Part of Your World," which I'm sure she was directed as such. Audiences for this show want familiarity. Her acting and singing overall though, were fantastic. I'm glad she was nominated.

I can't believe she wasn't nominated!! I'm still like "wtf?!?!?". She's so amazing in Xanadu!! U-N-F-A-I-R!!
"In theater, the process of it is the experience. Everyone goes through the process, and everyone has the experience together. It doesn't last - only in people's memories and in their hearts. That's the beauty and sadness of it. But that's life - beauty and the sadness. And that is why theater is life." Sherie Rene Scott
