2014 Tony Award Predictions: Best Featured Actress in a Play

Will Win - Mare Winningham "Casa Valentina" 

Could Win - Celia Keenan-Bolger "The Glass Menagerie" 

Commentary - So there is apparently a Tony curse for actors in the various versions of The Glass Menagerie. So even Celia Keenan-Bolger, who is on her third Tony nomination, is not necessarily a lock. Instead it looks like film and television actress Mare Winningham might take the prize instead for Casa Valentina. She is a well-known name, a respected veteran character actor, and while she doesn't have the history on the stage as her competitor, reviews suggest that she is definitely a scene-stealer. I think she helps to leave the curse intact.
