[...] I can understand why people might think it not for such a small role. Perhaps the category should be broadened?
I'm not saying that Willemijn should win because Elphaba is the harder role, but I think that Elphaba should compete against Guy, Girl, Valjean, Elders Price and Cunnigham, Galileo etc., whereas Eponine should be in the same category as say Nabalungi, Meat, Fiyero, Miss Honey, Miss Trunchball (?)
But yeah, I also think the actor/actress with the largest fan base will win regardless how good/bad (s)he plays that role...

I'm just hoping someone will film Willemijn's 'Let It Go'!
Willemijn sings Let it Go? In English? And not that strange German version? Why again am I flying back home today and not seeing this live on stage?
I would say uts entirely fair in this case. Yes Carrie has a huge following, but so does Wicked and its fans will vote regardless of whether they have actually seen the cast member in question. Wicked has won plenty of awards thanks to its young fans who are internet/social media savvy
i bought so much from DC over the years and never got a signed copy of anything! I'll stick to Amazon. I once witnessed some poor guy being shouted at once because he wanted to return a CD that wasn't working. Just poor service all round.
