Nominations have just been announced for this year’s Drama League Awards!
This is always the most head-scratching award set to me. The Distinguished Performance award is really a bit ridiculous–how could you possibly weigh all these people against each other? That said, where are Jane Krakowski and Renee Elise Goldsberry?
Just as a wild guess this year, I’ll predict Danny Burstein.
Lin-Manuel Miranda perhaps for his overall accomplishment in Hamilton?
There doesnt appear to be more than two performers from a show…maybe thats why Krakowski and Goldsberry are absent? I dont know the official rules for these awards, but that would seem to explain it.
Strong contenders for distinguished performance:
I cant see it really going to anyone other than those I listed.
Also: SO happy to see Leslie Kritzer here (along with her double-noms-in-same-category at the Lortels) for Robber Bridegroom. One of the highlights of the year for me.
