Broadway's biggest night is also date night for nominees and their partners.
This Sunday the theater world takes the night off to celebrate the year's best plays, musicals and performances. And we take a night off from the World Cup to celeb-spot and try and count how many Law & Order (RIP!) guest stars we can find among the nominees. There will also be a number of gorgeous Hollywood couples among the Tony attendees. Here are a few of our favorite sexy pairs.
Already a Tony winner (for the 2005 revival of Glengarry Glen Ross), Liev is nominated again for his performance in Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge, which is also the play that earned Scarlett Johansson (below) her nod. We assume Liev, on whom we have just the most unbearable crush, will bring his partner of five years, Naomi Watts, who's also the mother of the couple's two adorable sons, Sasha and Kai. Liev is nominated for leading actor in a play, although he has some stiff competition from Jude Law, Alfred Molina, Christopher Walken and Denzel Washington. YourTango's Top Fathers Of 2009
Jude Law & Sienna Miller
The reunited Jude and Sienna both trod the boards last year, but even though Sienna earned good reviews for her role in After Miss Julie, it was Jude who snagged the nomination for his take on the morose Danish prince in Hamlet, though his category will be a fistfight. We expect her to wear something ridiculous and him to finally clean up and look foxy again. Please?
