This week, the Tony Awards Administration Committee ruled that Julie Taymor will be eligible for a Best Direction of a Musical nomination, despite her very public ousting from the show back in March. Last night at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards, we caught up with Taymor and asked her how she felt about the news. "Well, it feels ... right," she admitted. "It feels right." If she did receive a nomination, would she do any publicity or promotion for it? "No," Taymor said. "It’s just my work up there, so that’s what it is."
