    No.

    Given the reviews for Tootsie you might want to reconsider that prediction. I’m of the opinion Tootsie will sweep.

    I’m not sure if Tootsie really can sweep. Tony voters in recent years have championed more originality in terms of staging, content, and material.

    For Jeff Daniels and Laurie Metcalf to be snubbed here, do we think this means they have no chance of winning the Tony? (Assuming May/Jackson and Cranston are the frontrunners?)

    No, because the Outer Critics Circle does not overlap with the Tonys. Three years ago, neither Reed Birney nor Jayne Houdyshell were even nominated at the OCC for The Humans, yet they both still went on to glory on Tony night. In 2014, Lena Hall wasn’t nominated by the Outer Critics Circle for Hedwig & the Angry Inch, yet that didn’t stop her from winning the Tony.

    Hell no. Tootsie may win book and actor, but that’s it. If there is a sweep, it will be Hadestown.

    Book + Actor has won musical consistently for quite some time now.

    These make some sense for a change. I’d be good with this for the Tonys. I think orchestrations might go to Hadestown because they usually go to the winner of best score.

    All the acting winners here may very well repeat at the Tonys. Though I wouldn’t be surprised for Ali Stroker to take Featured Actress.

    Amber Gray vs. Ali Stroker is the one that I am uncertain for the Tony. I have Ali in my predictions but am not sure about it at all…

    I think Amber Gray could be helped by the fact that she’s the only Featured Actress in a Musical nominee who is not up against a co-star.

    I just did some research, and the last time that all eight Tony winners for acting showed up at the Outer Critics Circle Award was 2001. Though that year, there were several ties. Christine Ebersole (42nd Street) tied with Marla Schaffel (Jayne Eyre) for Outstanding Actress in a Musical; Viola Davis (King Hedley II) and Mary-Louise Parker (Proof) both tied for Outstanding Actress in a Play, though they would both go on to win Tonys in separate categories; and Gary Beach (The Producers) tied with André De Shields (The Full Monty) for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play.

    And Amber just beat her without Mary Testa being a co-nominee to divert votes. I think featured actor might be the one that’s different at the Tonys.

    Also this year the OCCs include more of the nominated shows and performances that overlap with the Tonys. The drama desks only allowed Hadestown eligibility in certain categories.

    This is very misleading because, as you know, the OCCs and Drama Desks most years do not allow off-Broadway shows to be eligible again once they transfer to Broadway. Thus, the discrepancy between these awards and the Tonys. So you can’t go by these figures at all. It could very well be that the Tonys and OCCs match this year because the OCCs smartly let Hadestown compete even though it competed when it was off-Broadway too.
