Congratulations to our Expert Susan Haskins (Theater Talk) for a terrific score of 76.92% when predicting the 2018 Tony Awards winners on Sunday. She got 20 of 26 categories correct and is tops among 14 Experts, journalists who cover the entertainment industry throughout the year. She also has a great point score total of 6,951 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 900 people worldwide predicted these Broadway winners in 26 categories. The awards ceremony was held in New York City and were hosted by Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban. Haskins got three of the four top winners right with Best Musical (“The Band’s Visit”), Best Play (“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”) and Best Play Revival (“Angels in America”) but missed out on Best Musical Revival (choosing “My Fair Lady” over “Once on This Island”).
