Congratulations to our Expert Peter Travers for topping all Experts and Users with a tremendous score of 88.46% when predicting the 2019 Tony Awards winners on Sunday. The Rolling Stone journalist is actually tied with four other Users — 3NU, Jeff Knizner, OneAndOnlyMe and Gordon Cox of Variety — at that percentage but has the better point score total of 20,615 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 1,000 people worldwide predicted these Broadway champs. Our top scorer only missed three of the 26 categories for the New York City event hosted by James Corden. His misses were for Best Play Revival (choosing “All My Sons” over “The Boys in the Band”), Best Lighting Design of a Play (choosing “Network” over “Ink”) and Best Sound Design of a Play (choosing “The Ferryman” over “Choir Boy”). That means he was correct about Best Musical (“Hadestown”), Best Musical Revival (“Oklahoma!”), Best Play (“The Ferryman”) and all acting categories.
