You only get four noms in the acting categories, unfortunately.
And you left out the best director, Bartlett Sher.

Has it been decided if Laurents will be eligible?

Actually, the past several years there have been 5 acting nominees - it used to be 4.

It is my understanding that Arthur Laurents will be eligible; besides, this is MY dream ballot! (;

And Bartlett Sher was left out because I liked the work of these 4 directors better! (hey, it's MY dream ballot!) (;

Neither Gypsy or South Pacific are eligible for Orchestrations, as they both use they're original scoring.

A little known fact is that in the original screenplay, Pan's Labyrinth was Pan's FLAByrinth. Hmmmmmmm...glad they changed it.

I hated hated hated Passing Strange! And disliked A Catered Affair.

Didn't realize Gypsy and South Pacific were ineligble; no wonder I liked those orchestrations the most!! (: I'd pick Xanadu for best orchestrations. I'd add In The Heights, then...
