    Lobby Hero got raves. It will definitely be nominated for Revival and a few others. Though, Angels and Harry Potter will sweep.

    If I had to predict them now, I think the nominees will be…

    Best Play:
    The Children
    Farinelli & the King
    Harry Potter & the Cursed Child

    Best Revival of a Play:
    Angels in America
    The Iceman Cometh
    Lobby Hero
    Three Tall Women

    Best Performance By a Leading Actor in a Play:

    Tom Hollander-Travesties
    Jamie Parker-Harry Potter & the Cursed Child
    Mark Rylance-Farinelli & the King
    Denzel Washington-The Iceman Cometh

    *If Nathan Lane competes as lead for Angels in America, I’d say he gets in over Tom Hollander.

    Anthony Boyle-Harry Potter & the Cursed Child
    Ron Cook-The Children
    Brian Tyree Henry-Lobby Hero
    James McArdle-Angels in America
    Lee Pace-Angels in America

    *If Nathan Lane ends up competing as a featured actor, I guess I could see him getting in over Brian Tyree Henry.

    I wonder what Nathan Lane is pushing for here. If they pushed him in supporting he’d have a much better shot at the win, right? I’m thinking maybe he wants another win under his belt and is willing the producers to campaign him in featured with the committee. Or maybe he like the pedigree of being in the leading category. Best Director is a bloodbath. Between the 5 you’ve mentioned, I don’t know how you pick a winner. I guess Harry Potter is the obvious choice because of the overall accomplishment that it is, but Three Tall Women and Angels in America sound flawless. Not sure what, if anything, I’d change in your picks!

    When will the committee be making its final decisions on category placements? I would be really surprised if Lane winds up in the Featured Actor category…
