Tony Nomination Snubs and Surprises
The 2023 Tony Award nominations have been announced and there were some expected, and unexpected, nominees. However, there were also some notable snubs.
One of the biggest snubs is Rachel Brosnahan not being nominated for her role in The Sign in Sidney Brustein’s Window. Despite receiving critical acclaim for her performance, Brosnahan was overlooked in the Best Leading Actress in a Play category.
‘Ain’t No Mo’’
Another notable snub is ‘Ain’t No Mo’’ not being nominated for Best Play. This play was a critical and commercial success, with many praising its poignant commentary on the black experience in America.
‘& Juliet’ was snubbed in several major categories, including Best Musical. This is surprising as this musical was a fan favorite and received positive reviews from critics. The show’s star, Miriam-Teak Lee, was also overlooked for Best Leading Actress in a Musical, despite her standout performance.
‘Kimberly Akimbo’ was a surprise nominee for Best Musical. This Off-Broadway production has been praised for its unique story and memorable songs. Fans of the show are thrilled to see it receive recognition on Broadway.
Oscar Isaac was a surprise nominee for his role in ‘Some Like It Hot’. This marks Isaac’s first Tony nomination and fans are excited to see him recognized for his talent on the stage.
The Tony nominations always bring surprises and snubs, and the 2023 nominations were no exception. While there were some notable snubs, there were also some unexpected and well-deserved nominees. The winners will be announced on Tony Awards night and fans of the theater can’t wait to see who takes home the trophies.
