The list of Tony Awards 2012 nominees are in, and as usual, there are winners and losers. Once received 11 nods, while Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark fell short with two.
If you were lucky enough to attend the 2006 film, kudos to you for being part of an enchanting experience.
Fast forward to John Tiffany's Indie film adaptation in the form of a musical, and sheer genius is at play. Once, the musical, gives a three-dimensional rendering to a brilliant movie, made perfect by a timeless score and soundtrack.
Perhaps, that's why it received 11 nods on the Tony Awards 2012 nominees list. Notwithstanding the low-budget in the film, the musical stands out as one of the best of this generation, according to some critics.
Among the many categories the musical received nods in, the "Best Performance by an Actor/Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical" nod is getting the most buzz. Steve Kazee and Cristin Milioti received nominations in both categories, respectively.
However, where there are winners, there are losers at the 66th Annual Tony Awards. Despite the fanfare, storied tradition, and big budget, Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark was, well...light on the votes. It only brought in nods in the costume and scenic design categories.
If it's any consolation, Andrew Garfield, the future web-slinger on the big screen, received a 2012 Tony Awards nomination for "Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play" (the revival Aurthur Miller's Death of a Salesman).
However, the Social Network star is up against some tough competition. Garfield faces Tom Edden (On Man, Two Guvnors) and Jeremey Shamos with his notable performance in Clybourne Park.
