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. Our top scorer got 23 of the 26 champs correct, including all of the victories by “The Band’s Visit,” “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” and “Angels in America.” He only missed out on Best Musical Revival (choosing “My Fair Lady” over “Once on This Island”), Best Featured Actor in a Musical (choosing Norbert Leo Butz over Ari’el Stachel) and Best Scenic Design of a Musical (selecting “My Fair Lady” over “SpongeBob Squarepants”)
