But Ricky Martin is snubbed for his role in the revival of Evita

Nominations for the the 66th annual Tony Awards were announced on Tuesday (1 May) and Ricky Martin's much-heralded return to the Broadway stage in Evita did not result in a nod for the openly-gay superstar.

But out actress Cynthia Nixon, winner of the 2006 Tony for Rabbit Hole, is one of the favorites in the lead actress in a play category for her performance as a woman dying of cancer in Wit.

Martin, who earned a Drama Desk Award nomination for his performance as Che, last appeared on Broadway in 1996 in Les Miserables.
