|I think you make a good argument for why Cooper is in the mix, but I think Brandon Uranowitz is the frontrunner. As the only acting nominee for Leopoldstadt, he is going to get support from those who loved the show, and I think he stuck out among the large cast. He's also a Broadway vet who's in his 6th Broadway show in less than 10 years and on his fourth Tony nomination without a win.
I'm not sure that the voters are going to feel like they have to recognize Ain't No Mo'; if there is any play that they are going to feel that way about, I think it is Fat Ham. And I think the shutout for Slave Play indicated that maybe the voters don't feel compelled in general in that way.
There's also the question of how many voters actually saw Ain't No Mo', since it closed early right before the holidays. Cooper may benefit from Zayas being nominated, since voters are only allowed to have missed one show. So you can't vote if you missed both Ain't No Mo' and Cost of Living, and I think only a fraction of potential voters are going to be voting in this category. That fraction may not be representative of the entire voting pool. The acting nomination list is skewed towards closed shows for plays; only 8 of the 19 acting nominees are in shows that are currently open.
