Gideon Glick (here with Lindsay Mendez) had a breakthrough performance in "Significant Other," but both he and the show were not nominated.
8/9
Matthew Murphy
"Cats" returned to Broadway 15 years after its legendarily long run. But while the original 1982 production won 7 Tonys including Best Musical, its revival couldn't claw up a single nomination.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney made everyone laugh in "Oh, Hello." What's not funny? Their total Tonys snubs.
