2012 Tony Predictions: Featured Actress in a Musical
Will Win - Judy Kaye "Nice Work If You Can Get It" Should Win - Kaye or Houdyshell Could Win - Jayne Houdyshell "Follies" or Davine Joy Randolph "Ghost"
Commentary - An interesting race is brewing in this category, with three women fighting for the top spot. Davine Joy Randolph could win a Tony for the role that won Whoopi the Oscar, but Ghost doesn't have the buzz of Follies or Nice Work if You Can Get It. While I think Houdyshell has a good chance, being a previous nominee, previous Tony winner and stage veteran Judy Kaye looks to be the stronger of the two for her performance in Nice Work if You Can Get It. I think Kaye takes the prize.
