CRITIC’S NOTEBOOK: Tyrone’s early-out-the-gate acting (Actor Boy and Thespy) predictions

CHARACTER WORK: Grant takes centrestage. Inset, an intense Barrett.

Last week in this column I raved about fast-rising actress Abigail Grant’s terrific (read: comically savvy) performance as a frustrated housekeeper in Scandal, a pretty decent production that could pick up a Best Comedy Actor Boy nomination. 

Thespy-wise, the other front-runner in the supporting-actress race is obviously Suzette Barrett for her fierce turn as a spurned Jezebel consumed by vengeance in Gloria Lannaman’s superbly revived Stanley, Fay, Pularchie & P. Beyond that, it’s anyone’s guess.

  1. In an industry that rewards the ones that really deserve These pridictions could be all but seal up for me except for the long shot male actor. We use the term actor too loosely
