Amanda Harrison and Lucy Durack, the witches from WICKED, are nominated in the Best Actress category. Maggie Kirkpatrick (Madame Morrible) is going for the Best Supporting Actress award. And the Rob Guest, whose death last year plunged the music theatre world into mourning, has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor.
