Nabalungi is featured. Nikki James won the Tony for featured so guess it would be the same here.
Well, Alex Gaumond was nominated for Best Actor in 2011 for Emmet in Legally Blonde - which is a supporting role in my opinion and was treated as such on Broadway.

Changes happen between Broadway and West End.

And Merrily We Roll Along is going to take a lot of beating if you ask me. Besides which, every actor in that production is giving a better performance than any of the leads in these big new shows...

Merrily doesn't exactly have much competition in the Musical Revivals category, does it?!

I Can't Sing will be eligible for the 2015 awards, and it's unlikely Newsies or Miss Saigon will be eligible for 2014 unless they open by March next year.

I think the Oliviers should extend their deadline to late March/early April to allow more shows to be eligible. Another possible contender is The Light Princess at the National which I think is opening in October.

I think Once and Book of Mormon will dominate the awards next year, Once probably more so than Mormon.

I dunno, i think Charlie has a big chance at sweeping the award season too... if not the Oliviers, it will dominate the WOS awards i think, as its audience voted

I think it depends alot on whether shows like Newsies make it in time, or if Barnum makes the transfer! Also Stephen Ward has a chance at winning big as everyone loves a good ALW show! And if Saigon comes in before the deadline that could mix things up! So I can't see any show dominating to be honest!

Zrinka Cvitešić may have a chance at Best Actress in a Musical and after everything I've read so far I'm not convinced Charlie will take home so many awards. Especially as there are enough plays to be considered for lighting, costume, set and sound - and direction!
And yes, it's far too early to make any good guesses.
