Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, Allison Janney, Josh Groban, Daniel Radcliffe, Sally Field and Corey Hawkins are among the actors nominated for the performance trophy at the 2017 Drama League Awards, on a long list of nominees that includes a number of potential Tony Awards contenders.
The Drama Leagues are part of the annual onslaught of theater-season awards that jostle for attention prior to the Tonys. They can often serve as a gauge for which titles are drawing awards heat, but as a prognostication tool, the Drama Leagues aren’t terribly helpful, given the high number of nominees in each of four production categories and the one acting category. There are nearly 50 acting nominees, for example.

Allison Janney promised a Toledo audience full of West Wing fans one big incentive if Hillary Clinton is elected president.
She’ll come back and do “The Jackal.”
West Wing viewers remember — and love — the first-season episode in which C.J. Cregg, the unflappable press secretary portrayed by Janney, lip-syncs to the Ronny Jordan song.
You currently star in “Mom,” and your new movie, “Tallulah,” explores a lot of issues about motherhood. I wanted to ask you about not having children yourself, though it’s one of those things you don’t ask a man. I know what it feels like to love and care about things, but I’ve never had that instinct to have kids. There’s a friend of mine who just graduated from high school, and I was at her party with all these little kids, and she was like, “I can’t wait to have kids!” At her age, I was thinking, I can’t wait to have a dog. I really am at peace with not being a mom.
