Olivia Wilde’s 1984 play not eligible for Tony Awards nominations

Olivia Wilde and Tom Sturridge’s 1984 play has been ruled ineligible for the Tony Awards next year (18).
The Tron: Legacy actress starred in the stage adaptation of George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel, opposite British actor Sturridge as protagonist Winston Smith, who is brutally tortured after illegally falling in love with Wilde’s character Julia.
The gig marked Wilde’s Broadway debut, but she will not have a chance to compete for any Tonys for the play because it didn’t meet all the requirements to be eligible for nominations, according to a spokesperson for the awards administration committee. It is unclear which requirements the production failed to fulfil.
The show ran from May to October (17) and during its run, Wilde and Sturridge suffered a number of injuries, including the actress breaking her tailbone and the On The Road star having his nose busted by his co-star.
