In Other Awards...

All eyes may be on the Tony race, but the NY Drama Desk (who include both all professional shows Broadway and non) also came out with their nominations.

And an especially fractured NY Drama Critics Circle announced whatever winners they could--after failing to reach consensus on a Best Foreign Play and a Best Musical.  Their Best Play is the Horton Foote Orphans' Home cycle.  Then they went all Obies and gave out citations for "sustained performance" (Viola Davis) "emerging talent" (playwright Annie Baker) and to last summer's Lincoln Center Festival for "visionary international programming" (in lieu of Best Foreign Play, I guess).

Meanwhile, the Time Out's David Cote lets fly some good ol' Tony nomination carping.
