So can someone explain to me why so many people are predicting Rachel Prather getting nominated for Best Featured Actress for The Band’s Visit? Her part isn’t even that big, none of the reviews talked about her, and most (if not all) of the actresses in that show are dwarfed by Katrina Lenk. So what gives? How does she have more votes than Barrett Wilbert Weed AND Kate Rockwell?
There’s only two reasons I can think of:
1. It’s such a slow year for musicals, that the Featured Actress category is pretty hard to figure out who’ll be nominated.
2. I guess people are expecting her to get in based on the strength of The Band’s Visit.
