    The only really big surprises for me were Richard McCabe winning for The Audience and You Can’t Take It With You winning for Best Revival. Thrilled that Annaleigh Ashford won for Featured Actress!

    Momentum certainly seems to be with Kristin Chenoweth at this point…. and Andy Karl!

    Fun Home’s ineligibility keeps everything up for grabs though on Tony night!

    As does Hamilton winning prizes like Book and Score here. I suspect it’ll do well at the Drama Desk Awards as well.

    On the play side, I am surprised at the OCC’s long memory for YCTIWY and am curious if Tony voters will have the same.

    In terms of predictive value, I think this definitely weakens the O’Hara express, given all of the awards for The King and I but not for her, and strengthens McCabe’s chances, as he defeated two of his strong Tony rivals.

    An American in Paris takes Musical, Director, Choreographer, AND Actor…..maybe Robert Fairchild will be more in this race than I gave him credit for. I was thinking Brian D’Arcy James might take one or both of the precursors without Michael Cerveris being there.

    Hamilton takes Book and Score….I do wonder if this will happen at DD. Right now, I am thinking it very well might.

    Most of the other acting wins aren’t really surprising.

    We may be looking for an Fairchild upset in actor in a musical, guys!

    I’m really upset because a Chenoweth’s win is getting closer each day.

    Karl winning featured without Oscar, doesn’t means much to me.

    Precursors really don’t matter that much for the Tony’s.

    Yeah, there aren’t really any Tony precursors. There is little to no overlap in any of the voting groups that give theater awards, and some awards category-mix Broadway and Off-Broadway, often in reckless and confusing ways in terms of eligibility. So you don’t even have the same pool of potential nominees. This year, Hamilton being eligible for most things except the Tonys and Fun Home being ineligible for just about everything except the Tonys really makes things skewed. So the pre-Tony awards aren’t really good for much except the occasional chuckle. But hey, if it means Ruthie Ann Miles gets an award, then some good can come of it.

    SkyLight is right. They can be a good guide sometimes, but we have had instances like Danny Burstein winning DD and OCC for Follies and then losing the Tony to Steve Kazee…..or Laura Benanti winning both and then losing to Nikki M. James. Granted, in those cases, both Burstein’s and Benanti’s productions had been closed.

    Still, we are definitely in for an interesting year/race!
