“WITH THREE EMMYS, three Oscar nominations and two Tony nominations to her credit, Laura Linney could have easily been forgiven for treating her third Tony nomination — for “Time Stands Still,” which ran from January to March of this year — with a bit of a shrug, especially since she was certain she wouldn’t win. The statuette for Best Actress in a Play was expected to go to Viola Davis, for “Fences.” (And indeed it did.)


But on the mid-June morning of the awards, over a chai latte in a Starbucks near her Manhattan apartment, Linney bubbled with anticipation for the big night. Just to participate in such a grand tradition and join her peers in the gilded splendor of Radio City Music Hall — that seemed to be excitement and validation enough for her. Without prompting, she ticked off highlights from Tony ceremonies she had watched over the years, special moments she replays in her head. “
