Astaire Awards name nominees

Jackman, Martin, Broderick in the running

Hugh Jackman, Ricky Martin and Matthew Broderick are among the nominees for the dance-centric Astaire Awards, the annual kudos that honor terping onstage and in film. Oscar fave “The Artist” is among the pics in the running for a trophy.

Jackman (“Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway”), Martin (“Evita”) and Broderick (“Nice Work If You Can Get It”) are among the nominees for male dancer in a Rialto tuner. Category is dominated by “Newsies” nods for dancers including Jeremy Jordan, Ryan Breslin, Thayne Jasperson, Ryan Steele and Ephraim Sykes; also in the mix are Danny Burstein (“Follies”), Leslie Odom Jr. (“Leap of Faith”), Jason Tam (“Lysistrata Jones”) and Robert Hartwell (“Nice Work”).

“Newsies,” which snagged seven noms overall, also got a nod for Christopher Gatelli for Broadway choreography, a category that also includes Rob Ashord (“Evita”), Sergio Trujillo (“Leap of Faith”), Kathleen Marshall (“Nice Work”), Steven Hoggett (“Once”) and Ron Brown (“Porgy and Bess”).

One of the few distaff perfomers in “Newsies,” Kara Lindsay, nabbed a nom for female terper in a Main Stem musical, competing against Elena Roger, Ashley Amber and Bahiyah Hibah (all from “Evita”), Jan Maxwell (“Follies”), Krystal Joy Brown (“Leap of Faith”), Patti Murin (“Lysistrata Jones”), Kelli O’Hara (“Nice Work”) and Lisa Nicole Wilkerson (“Porgy and Bess”).

Along with “The Artist,” contenders for narrative feature film including “Damsels in Distress,” “Footloose,” “Musical Chairs,” “Passione” and “W.E.” “Check Your Body at the Door,” “First Position,” “Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance,” “Never Stand Still” and “Pina” make up the doc category.

The 30th annual Astaire Awards will be handed out June 4 in a Gotham ceremony that, as previously announced, will also honor Lisa Minnelli with a lifetime achievement award.
