Paul Giamatti (who made his Broadway debut back in 1995 in Arcadia) was nominated for The Holdovers. Broadway writer, producer, and actor Colman Domingo was also nominated for his role in Rustin. Jeffrey Wright, who you last saw on Broadway in 2010 in A Free Man of Color, was nominated for American Fiction. Finally, Cillian Murphy was nominated for Oppenheimer, and while we haven't seen Cillian on the Broadway stage yet, we’d love to see him come!
