    Girls really do have more fun. Kinky Boots, the Broadway musical with music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, led the Tony nominations on Tuesday with 13, while heavyweights Tom Hanks and Nathan Lane will face each other for Best Actor. Kinky Boots, which opened earlier this month to mixed reviews, has serious competition from Matilda, the musical adaption of Roald Dahl’s book. Also nominated were A Christmas Story and Bring It On: The Musical. The play revival Golden Boy led the play nominations with eight, with the late Nora Ephron’s final play, Lucky Guy, receiving six. Hanks, Lane, Holland Taylor, and Laurie Metcalf were all nominated, but there were some big-name snubs, including Bette Midler, Jessica Chastain, Katie Holmes, Scarlett Johansson, and Al Pacino.
