Broadway's biggest night – the 66th annual Tony Awards – may be 40 days away, but the celebrating has already kicked in, especially for a modest new musical called Once, a love story set in Ireland that scored the most nominations of any show this year: 11, including best musical.

Not celebrating: the much-maligned Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, which, despite an expenditure of $70 million, scads of publicity and the music of U2's Bono and the Edge, landed with only two nominations, for costume and scenic design.

Faring better after the nominations were announced Tuesday morning – by a chipper Kristin Chenoweth and a droll star Jim Parsons, who is about to star in a Broadway revival of the comedy Harvey – were such nominees as Andrew Garfield, Cynthia Nixon, Philip Seymour Hoffman, James Earl Jones, Stockard Channing, Linda Lavin, John Lithgow and Frank Langella.

Being bad turned out to be very good for actor John Lithgow.

Lithgow won Best Guest Actor in a drama at Saturday's Creative Arts Emmys for his bone-chilling role as a serial murderer on Showtime's Dexter.

Lithgow, 64, credited his chemistry with onscreen nemesis Michael C. Hall for bringing the character to terrifying life – and said Hall is "doing very, very well" since revealing in January that he was in remission from Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

"There were about four days over the course of that season last year that I had to work as hard as Michael does every day," Lithgow told reporters after winning his Emmy. "He's had no trouble this season working five days a week, so I'm delighted."
