Owen did not receive a nomination but the actor got zero songs to sing in a musical. The two actresses who got nominated really sings all of the songs in the show. I'm guessing since they were oringally done by Whitney Houston all of them had to be sung by a woman.
Now before anyone brings it up, the actor playing Frank Farmer does sing a snippet of one of the songs in the show but it's in fun and lasts only a few seconds. At least the actor is also given a few dance moves too.
Lloyd Owen (born Apr 15, 1966) has had three fairly interesting roles on television that some American audience members may recognize. In the "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" (1992-1993), Owen played Professor Henry Jones, Sr. to Sean Patrick Flannery's Indiana Jones.
From 2007 is probably a role he'd like to forget on the infamous television musical series "Viva Laughlin" that aired only two episodes before it was cancelled. At least the series had two other higher profile actors which probably mitigated Owen's exposure in the media. Those two actors: Hugh Jackman and Melanie Griffith.
Just last year, Owen had a regular supporting role in "You, Me and the Apocalypse" about an array of characters dealing with the last days of earth. Owen played the president of the United States.
His latest stage role was starring in 'The End of Longing' which also stars Matthew Perry (TV's "Friends") and is Perry's playwriting debut. The limited run ended in May 2016 and is expected to be presented in New York in 2017. It is unknown if the London cast will transfer with the show.
