    So in light of today’s events (I.e., the Outer Critics Circle Nominations, what do we think the odds are of Christy Altomare earning a nomination for Best Leading Actress at the Tony’s above Phillipa Soo or Eva Noblezada? I know Anastasia reviews were so-so but it just led OCC nominations and Christy got nominated over Soo, Noblezada, and Laura Osnes.

    The Outer Critics Circle has always had some strange tastes. Last year, American Psycho received 8 nominations, and we all saw how it turned out at the Tonys. In 2008, Young Frankenstein won the Outstanding New Broadway Musical award in a tie with Xanadu.

    As for who I have getting nominated, Christine Ebersole, Patti LuPone, and Bette Midler are the three locks to me. I have Denee Benton getting in based on the strength of The Great Comet. As for the 5th slot, you might as well throw a dart on the board for that one.

    I currently have Eva Noblezada taking it based on the strength of her role as Kim. She also has a great narrative to how she got the role. While the current revival of Miss Saigon did earn such a mixed critical response, the original production did as well.

    I had Phillipa Soo due to her stellar reputation and the fact that most critics reviewed her fairly, but so far the Drama League and OCC have completely overlooked her.

    I’m not counting out Barrett Doss in this. Her performance glows and she has the audience in her pocket from her first scene.

    ETA: Though based on the rulings, she’ll be in Featured.

    Christy Altomare is becoming more and more of a contender for this. It’s looking like she has the potential to elbow out Phillipa Soo.

    At the moment I have Christy Altamore, Christine Ebersole, Patti LuPone, Bette Midler and Laura Osnes. I took out Denee Benton and feel uncertain about it.

    I think Denée will certainly get in, if nothing else for riding Natasha’a coat tails. As near I can see the fifth nominee will be between Phillipa Soo and Christy Altomare. The buzz has all but died for Eva Noblezada, and I don’t see Laura Osnes getting nominated for this one.

    Christy Altomore is like being compared to Bernadette Peters. She is a threat to actually win this especially with the amount of vote splitting that’s going to happen with those big three divas.

    I think Bette Midler has this category sewn up.

    For sure but I’m trying to lock down the fifth nominee.
