Multiple Winners[edit]

Multiple Nominees[edit]

Statistics[edit]

  • There have been no ties in the history of this category.
  • The role of Herbie, in Gypsy, holds the record for most nominations in this category, with four:
  • Hinton Battle remains the most successful performer in the history of this category with a perfect score of three wins in three nominations. Scott Wise and René Auberjonois have also attained three nominations each, but have only been victorious once. Gregg Edelman and Marc Kudisch also received three nominations, and neither have ever won and they are this category's greatest "losers". Ironically, both were nominated and lost to Shuler Hensley in 2002.
  • There has never been a consecutive winner in this category. There have been, though, some consecutive nominations. Jack Cassidy was consecutively nominated in 1964 and 1965, while Bruce Adler achieved the same honor in 1991 and 1992. Cassidy won in 1964, for his portrayal of Steve Kodaly, in She Loves Me.
  • The record for the longest span between wins is held by Hiram Sherman, whose wins for Two's Company, in 1953, and How Now, Dow Jones, in 1968, are set apart by 15 years.
  • The record for the longest span between nominations is held by John McMartin, whose nominations for Sweet Charity, in 1966, and High Society, in 1998, are set apart by 32 years. McMartin has never won a Tony Award in this category.
  • The oldest winner in this category is Dick Latessa who was 73 when he won for Hairspray in 2003. The youngest winner is Frankie Michaels who won for Mame in 1966 at age 10.
