Tonys: Bette Midler, Alec Baldwin and Al Pacino Lead Starry Snubs List

Hollywood descended on Broadway this year, but many big names were left empty-handed on Tuesday.

Tom Hanks was feeling like a lucky guy Tuesday, but many of his big-name brethren didn't fare so well when nominations for the biggest award on Broadway were announced.

In a splashy return to the Broadway stage after more than three decades' absence, Bette Midler has earned raves for her role as Hollywood super-agent Sue Mengers in I'll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers, but critical praise did not equal trophy consideration. Penned by Skyfall screenwriter John Logan, the play itself also was left out of awards contention.

FULL LIST: Tony Nominations 2013

Alan Cumming reinvented MacBeth, also drawing fine reviews, but the native Scotsman's reworking of the Bard's bloodiest tragedy fell short of a nomination. Al Pacino was denied a nom for his role in the revival Glengarry Glen Ross, while his castmate in the 1992 film version of that classic, Alec Baldwin, was snubbed for an actor nom for his work in the very buzzy and battle-scarred Orphans.

Baldwin's co-star Tom Sturridge was nominated, however, but Ben Foster, who stepped in after Shia LaBeouf's abrupt exit during rehearsals, also was among the shutouts.

As for Hanks, his role in the late Nora Ephron's play Lucky Guy as New York crime-beat columnist Mike McAlary, a fixture of the city's tabloid wars during the 1980s, earned him his first Tony nomination.
