Congratulations to Helen Mirren for receiving a Tony Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for “The Audience”. She shares the category with Geneva Carr (Hand to God), Elisabeth Moss (The Heidi Chronicles), Carey Mulligan (Skylight) and Ruth Wilson (Constellations). “The Audience” has received a total of three nominations, including Richard McCabe for Best Actor in a Play and Bob Crowley for Best Costume Design of a Play. This is Helen’s third Tony Award nomination – for her third Broadway play. She has received previous nominations for “A Month in the Country” in 1995 and for “Dance of Death” in 2002. So maybe third’s the lucky charm. The Tony Awards are handed out during a live ceremony on June 7, 2015.
