    There are eight directors who I think have a shot at a nomination. There will definitely be some really deserving directors who won’t make the cut. Which five of these eight (or do you think one of the 7 other directors will make it?)

    Bill Condon, Side Show
    John Doyle, The Visit
    Scott Ellis, On the Twentieth Century
    Sam Gold, Fun Home
    Casey Nicholaw, Something Rotten!
    John Rando, On the Town
    Bartlett Sher, The King and I
    Christopher Wheeldon, An American In Paris

    I think the final lineup is going to be Ellis, Gold, Nicholaw, Sher and Wheeldon.

    I want the final lineup to be Condon, Doyle, Ellis, Gold and Rando!!! (:

    They changed the rules for number of nominees this year. There will be five nominees since enough eligible musicals opened in the season.

    Thanks Sam – I thought the change was only for Play, Musical and Revival of a Play – good to know! (:

    Gold and Sher are locks, Nicholaw probably close to it.

    The final two will be a combo of Doyle, Ellis and Wheeldon. I’m guessing Doyle and Ellis. Wheeldon will get his due in choreography.

    Would love to see Condon nominated.

    I think the final nominees will be:

    Sam Gold, Fun Home
    Bartlett Sher, The King and I
    Casey Nicholaw, Something Rotten!
    John Doyle, The Visit
    Scott Ellis, On the Twentieth Century

    I think of the above, Doyle and Ellis are the most vulnerable. Rando and Wheeldon are both highly likely, too, considering both shows were very well received. I think Rando suffers because On The Town opened so early in the season and all of the critical buzz has shifted to new musicals that have all opened in the last two weeks. An American in Paris received wonderful reviews and is a likely Best Musical nominee, though, so he could absolutely nab a slot.
