The 30th Fred & Adele Astaire Awards Nominations Announcement Party
On Monday, May 7th, 2012, The Nominating Committee of the 30th Annual Fred & Adele Astaire Awards will announce the nominees for this year’s awards at an invite-only cocktail reception. The Lamb’s Club (132 West 44th Street, New York 10036) in the categories of Outstanding Male Dancer in a Broadway Show, Outstanding Female Dancer in a Broadway Show, Outstanding Choreographer for a Broadway Show, Outstanding Choreographer for Film, and Outstanding Director for Dance Documentary.
Liza Minnelli, who will be honored with the Douglas Watt Lifetime Achievement Award, is the winner of four Tony Awards, an Oscar, a special "Legends" Grammy, two Golden Globe Awards and an Emmy and is one of the entertainment world's consummate performers. Ms. Minnelli, other special guests and many of this year’s nominees will be present at the May 7 cocktail reception.
In addition to honoring Ms. Minnelli this year, The Astaire Awards will also begin a new tradition, paying tribute to the career and work of a choreographer and dancer during the awards. This year they will be remembering Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon, and a few signature Bob Fosse numbers featuring current Broadway performers will be a part of the 30th Awards Show on June 4th. Fosse directed Ms. Minnelli in the film version of Cabaret for which she won the Oscar for Best Leading Actress.
This year’s awards ceremony will also be dedicated to Tony and Oscar-winning producer Marty Richards, a longtime friend of the awards.
