NEW YORK —

Two leading contenders for Tony Award nominations may make the race a drag this year.

"Kinky Boots" and "Matilda" - each of which is led by a man dressed as a woman - are virtual locks to get best musical Tony nods Tuesday morning.

The nominations will be announced by Tony-winner Sutton Foster and "Modern Family" star Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

In "Matilda," British actor Bertie Carvel plays a brutal headmistress, while Billy Porter is a drag queen in "Kinky Boots."

Other contenders for the best musical prize include "Bring It On: The Musical," "Motown: The Musical," "Hands on a Hardbody" and "A Christmas Story, The Musical."

Leading contenders for best play are "The Assembled Parties," "The Other Place" and "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike."
