So, there were donuts in the conference room at my office today as we waited with baited breath for the nominations on NY1. The donuts were good; the fact that Matilda received 12 nominations was better.
Things I’m particularly excited about:
- Bring It On’s nominations (Best Musical, Best Choreography). I loved this show – though I may be biased. But I’m totally ecstatic that it got two nominations that it very much, IMO, deserved.
- Rob McClure for Chaplin. He was just phenomenal. There were no words.
- Condola Rashad in The Trip to Bountiful. She was endearing, and funny, and gave a great performance.
- Pippin’s nomination for Best Revival of a Musical. You just have to see it to get it.
The hysterical moment came when they announced Best Lighting of a Musical. Kenneth Posner received three out of four nominations. I’m not sure that’s ever happened before. If he doesn’t win.. it’ll be the biggest shock of the awards.
I guess nothing else is that big of a shock as far as the nominations go. I suppose I have to see Kinky Boots now. I guess I’ll be rushing it!
Congrats to all of the nominees!
