Scarlett Johansson Up For Tony

Scarlett Johansson has been nominated for a Tony award for her Broadway debut.

The 'Lost In Translation' actress is in the running for the Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play category at the coveted ceremony - which recognises the best in US stage productions - for her role in the Arthur Miller play 'A View From The Bridge'.

Scarlett is one of many famous names to be nominated for an award, with Catherine Zeta-Jones also given the nod in the Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical category for her singing-and-dancing turn in 'A Little Night Music'.

The Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play category looks set to be one of the most hotly-contested, with big screen favourites Denzel Washington, Jude Law, Live Schreiber and Christopher Walken contesting the accolade with 'Red' star Alfred Molina.

Other notable nominations included Green Day's 'American Idiot', which is up for Best Musical.

Denzel's play 'Fences' was one of the most nominated productions, getting the nod in 10 categories.

Only the musical 'Fela!' and 'La Cage Aux Folles' - which starred 'Frasier' actor Kelsey Grammer - received more nominations, with a total of 11 each.

The 64th annual Tony Awards will be broadcast from New York's Radio City Music Hall on June 13.

No host for the ceremony has yet been announced.

'In the Next Room or the Vibrator Play'
