It was a brutal Tuesday morning for some A-list stars on Broadway.Snubbed for Tony Award nominations were Denzel Washington, James Franco, Zachary Quinto, Michelle Williams, Orlando Bloom, Ethan Hawke, Zach Braff, Billy Crudup, Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig. Daniel Radcliffe struck out for his third consecutive Broadway show.Neil Patrick Harris, who won a nomination for his brilliant performance in the punk-rock show "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," said he was surprised by the final list. Not one of the shows has a big movie star.Rylance, who played "Richard III," will compete in the best leading actor in a play category with Samuel Barnett, also in "Twelfth Night," Bryan Cranston in "All The Way," Chris O'Dowd in "Of Mice and Men" and Tony Shalhoub in "Act One".While not all Hollywood stars came away empty-handed -- Cranston, as expected, won a nod for playing Lyndon Johnson in "All the Way" -- the lack of nominations for Broadway veterans from the film world such as Washington, Radcliffe, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, or first-timers, like Franco and Williams, was striking.The show itself didn't get a best musical nomination, though the music did.
