Star power shined on Broadway this season – and some of the big names even managed to gain Tony nominations, it was announced Tuesday morning.
Among them: Tom Hanks, in the Tony-nominated best-play contender by the late Nora Ephron, Lucky Guy; Laurie Metcalf, in Sharr White's The Other Place; Cicely Tyson, in a revival of Horton Foote's The Trip to Bountiful; Holland Taylor, in the play about the late, outspoken Texas governor Ann Richards, written by Taylor herself, Ann; David Hyde Pierce, in Christopher Durang's best-play nominee Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike; Nathan Lane, in Douglas Carter Beane's The Nance.
In the best musical category, the nominees are Bring It On, A Christmas Story, Matilda and Kinky Boots, which received the most nominations of any show: 13, including a nod for its Cyndi Lauper-written score.
Best play contenders, besides Lucky Guy and the side-splitting homage to Chekhov, Vanya, are Richard Greenberg's The Assembled Parties and Colm Tólbin's The Testament of Mary.

You want to be the man in Scarlett Johansson's life? Watch how you act.
"I don't like jealous behavior," the actress, 28, tells Marie Claire for its May issue, on newsstands April 16.
"I don't mind an occasional check-in, but when somebody is passive-aggressively jealous, it's really unattractive because it shows a sort of insecurity. ... Oh, controlling behavior is awful. Nobody's going to say they love that."

Is Scarlett Johansson headed down the aisle?
After the Hitchcock actress, 28, was spotted wearing a pear-shaped diamond ring in New York City on Monday, rumors began to swirl that Johansson and her French journalist beau, Romain Dauriac, may have taken their relationship to the next level.
But a rep for Johansson says she's not walking down the aisle.

Scarlett Johansson as Maggie the Cat is supposed to be the main sex symbol in the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. But she's got her eye on costar Ben Walker – in particular, his butt.
"That is really one of the brighter points of my life," the actress, 28, tells Broadway.com.
Walker, 30, playing Maggie's husband Brick, spends a large chunk of the play wearing nothing but a towel, and sometimes (with his back to the crowd) not even that, giving Johansson – and the audience – an eyeful.
"I have asked Ben at times, when I was having a more difficult day, to just leave it out there for a couple more moments, just to brighten my day a little bit," she says. "I think it adds a little bit of hope in an otherwise dismal situation."

Might Adele wrestle a foul-mouthed bear for an Academy Award? Or will a criminal on the run sweep in to steal the statuette?
At this year's Academy Awards, it's anyone's guess.
The Oscar nominees were announced Jan. 10, and the five nominated tracks for Best Original Song range from jazzy tunes like the Norah Jones-sung "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" (Ted) to pop hits like Adele's "Skyfall" (Skyfall). The nominated bunch also includes moody, new age tracks like "Pi's Lullaby" (Life of Pi); bluesy ballads like the Scarlett Johansson-sung "Before My Time" (Chasing Ice); and Hugh Jackman's heart-wrenching, Broadway-ready ballad from Les Misérables, "Suddenly."
Listen to the nominated songs below – and then check out which songs (cough, mostly Disney songs in the '90s, cough) took home the Oscar for Best Original Songs in the past.

Scarlett Johansson says she won't be walking down the aisle again anytime soon simply because, she says, she "never" thinks of marriage.
In an interview with ELLE UK magazine in its February issue, Johansson says she married young the first time to now-ex-husband Ryan Reynolds, and right now, she's enjoying a committed relationship … minus the ring.
"It's really not important to me," Johansson, who's currently starring on Broadway in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, told ELLE UK of marriage. "The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me, 'Would I get married again?' "

Scarlett Johansson has been practicing her French kissing this week – kissing her new French boyfriend, that is!
The actress, 28, who recently broke up with adman Nate Naylor, was photographed while engaged in a little PDA with Romain Dauriac, a journalist, after leaving their New York hotel.

Scarlett Johansson is a scream as Psycho star Janet Leigh in her new film, Hitchcock, which tells the story of the making of the classic horror movie in 1959.
Filming Pyscho's iconic shower scene had its challenges, Johansson 27, tells V magazine in a new interview.
"We only had the luxury to shoot the scene for a day, and everybody was feeling very nervous because it involved water and nobody wants the actor to get wet," she says. "They were concerned with modesty and all these things – but I don't care about any of that stuff and Janet Leigh never did either.
