Sweet Smell of Success's Brian d'Arcy James, John Guare and John Lithgow have all been nominated for 2002 Drama Desk Awards. Unlike the Tony Awards (where they were nominated in separate categories), James and Lithgow will vie for Outstanding Actor in a Musical honors, while playwright Guare is nominated for Outstanding Book of a Musical.

Thoroughly Modern Millie has garnered 12 Drama Desk Award nominations, the most of any show this season. Close behind was Sweet Smell of Success with 11 nods. Oklahoma! won 9 nods. The nominations were announced April 29 at 10 AM at a press conference at the Friar's Club in Manhattan. Nominees picked up their plaques on May 2.
