My way too early prediction is that the nominees will be Andrew Garfield, Tom Hollander, Nathan Lane, Jamey Parker and Mark Rylance.
There may be last minute plays that open before the end of April that will change this list, but for now these are the potential nominees.
It should also be interesting to see if Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane will both end up competing in the same category. When Angels in America originally competed at the Tonys, both parts were eligible in two separate seasons given their opening dates.
When Millennium Approaches competed in 1993, Ron Leibman won Lead Actor in a Play for his performance as Roy Cohn (Lane’s character) while Stephen Spinella won Featured Actor in a Play for his performance as Prior Walter (Garfield’s character). When Perestroika competed the following year, Spinella won Lead Actor in a Play for the same character.
