Bryan Cranston, Neil Patrick Harris and Audra McDonald were among Tuesday's Tony Awards nominees.
Cranston received a nod for his portrayal of President Lyndon Johnson in All the Way, which also nabbed a Best Play nomination, while McDonald was recognized for her lead performance in the play Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill.
Harris, who has hosted the Tonys four times and won three Emmys for doing so, scored a nomination for playing the title character in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, a nominee for Best Revival of a Musical. (Watch videos of Harris here.)
A few weeks after John Travolta butchered her name at the Oscars, Idina Menzel has finally addressed the gaffe in an interview with Billboard.
Menzel said she "was very zen" as she prepared for her performance of "Let It Go," but that Travolta introducing her as Adele Dazeem "threw me for a minute." "But then I just got back on track and reminded myself of where I was, and what a beautiful moment it was," she said.

Question: I am so disappointed in The Walking Dead. I cannot believe that they have indicated that there is an interest on the part of Daryl towards Beth. That is just ick. She is 17 and while I don't know what his age is supposed to be, I've always assumed his character is at least mid 30s. Let me repeat, ick! And it's not as if she is a mature 17-year-old, her character comes across as a complete child to me with just as much growing needed as Carl. In fact, Carl seems more mature to me at times. Why would the writers go there? All I can think is how perverted it is for Daryl to express an interest in a 17-year-old girl, and a character that I once loved is now bordering along the lines of a pedophile. My sister is so upset she thinks she might fast-forward over any story lines that involve Daryl. I know this is a TV show, but all I could think of was people's horrified reaction when Miley Cyrus twerked on Robin Thicke. Where is that horror now? On the upside, I've been reading your column for years and have always greatly enjoyed your thoughts and opinions even when they have differed from my own. Thanks for allowing me to vent. — KC
