    The nominations from the 2019-20 Broadway season will be announced October 15th in a digital broadcast hosted by the actor James Monroe Iglehart, who won a Tony for his performance in Aladdin.

    The Tony Nominating Committee will select the nominees in a meeting set for October 13th, prior to the announcement that will be streamed on the Tony Awards YouTube channel. No date has yet been set for the ceremony itself, but sources say organizers are aiming for sometime in the first half of December.

    Chris Beachum already said the predictions center won’t be open for the Tonys until AFTER the nominations are announced this year.

    I don’t think you should expect to see a predictions center until after the nominees are announced.

    Yeah, there was a prediction center event for this year’s nominations that shut down in late March and I had hoped would reopen once we had official word of proceeding with this year’s ceremony. It’s weird to see it closed and frozen in time, and, with Broadway now remaining closed until at least the end of next May, I don’t even understand proceeding now, but here are my guesses for this year’s nominees in predictions center categories:

    Looks like Lightning Thief is getting snubbed. I had hopes it would get some points for originality. Even in 1989 the nominators felt obligated to include at least one show with a book and score, which is why Starmites was up for Best Musical.

    Some stray thoughts on the race:

    “A Christmas Carol” just announced a tour and a return to Broadway in 2021. Obviously it’s no coincidence that they are announcing this right before nominators go vote. Does it make the cut for Best Play? Even if it doesn’t I suspect it will be one of the most nominated plays of the ceremony (I’m thinking director, orchestrations, and the 4 design categories).

    Andrew Burnap (Toby in “The Inheritance”) just came out as queer on instagram on National Coming Out Day. I had to listen to a lot of uncomfortable and aggravating discussions around The Inheritance, many of which involved listening to people complain that the cast was not filled with out queer men (besides John Benjamin Hickey and members of the ensemble). This convo always rubbed me the wrong way because 1. everyone is on their own journey in terms of coming out and no one should feel obligated to do so before they are ready, 2. Most of the actors in the play do not live in “the public eye” and its quite intrusive to start speculation and demands of the sexuality of actors getting their first big break.

    The one thing that made me hesitant to predict Burnap winning Lead Actor is the continued discussion of representation and folks voicing concerns about assumed straight actors playing gay. Well now that whole argument is gone. With that out of the way, is the race now shaping up to be Burnap vs. Hiddleston? Of course, both men have co-stars that could be nominated in the same category which could lead to vote splitting, so too early to tell. But that would be one hell of a showdown.

    And @anton spivak, I think The Lightning Thief has 3 very achievable nominations: Score, Lead Actor (McCarrell), and Featured Actor (Ryan Knowles). It may not be a huge player at the Tonys, but I dont expect it to get completely snubbed.

    Final 2020 Tony predictions

    Felt like being brave and listing my FINAL predictions here since all the changes and lack of advance warning for dates sort of killed the prediction center. Lead Actor in a Play remains the most difficult to predict (SO many incredible performances) as does Lead Actor in a Musical (will there even BE a category?). What are your predictions?

    Musical
    1. Moulin Rouge!
    2. Jagged Little Pill
    3. Tina: The Tina Turner Musical

    Play
    1. The Inheritance
    2. Slave Play
    3. The Sound Inside
    4. Grand Horizons
    5. Linda Vista

    *5th slot is tricky, and I have a feeling A Christmas Carol or The Height of the Storm could bump Linda Vista.

    Play Revival
    1. A Soldier’s Play
    2. Betrayal
    3. Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune

    Lead Actress – Musical
    1. Adrienne Warren, Tina
    2. Elizabeth Stanley, Jagged Little Pill
    3. Karen Olivo, Moulin Rouge!

    Lead Actor – Musical
    1. Aaron Tveit, Moulin Rouge!
    2. Chris McCarrell, The Lightning Thief

    *In the most brutal year for Broadway ever, it seems unspeakably cruel to cut the category. So I’m predicting it’s kept in.

    Featured Actress – Musical
    1. Lauren Patten, Jagged Little Pill
    2. Kathryn Gallagher, Jagged Little Pill
    3. Robyn Hurder, Moulin Rouge!
    4. Celia Rose Gooding, Jagged Little Pill

    Featured Actor – Musical
    1. Danny Burstein, Moulin Rouge!
    2. Sahr Ngaujah, Moulin Rouge!
    3. Ryan Knowles, The Lightning Thief
    4. Daniel J. Watts, Tina
    5. Sean Allan Krill, Jagged Little Pill

    Lead Actress – Play
    1. Mary-Louise Parker, The Sound Inside
    2. Laura Linney, My Name is Lucy Barton
    3. Joaquina Kalukango, Slave Play
    4. Audra McDonald, Frankie and Johnny

    Lead Actor – Play
    1. Andrew Burnap, The Inheritance
    2. Tom Hiddleston, Betrayal
    3. Kyle Soller, The Inheritance
    4. Ian Barford, Linda Vista
    5. Jake Gyllenhaal, Sea Wall/A Life

    *feeling a bit more confident than before about the top 4 slots…but it feels wrong to omit Jonathan Pryce (and Samuel Levine and Michael Shannon and Charlie Cox and…). But all these many months later I still distinctly recall how impressive and heartbreaking and joyous Gyllenhaal was, so I think he surprises

    Featured Actress – Play
    1. Lois Smith, The Inheritance
    2. Jane Alexander, Grand Horizons
    3. Cora Vander Broek, Linda Vista
    4. Annie McNamara, Slave Play
    5. Ashley Park, Grand Horizons

    Featured Actor – Play
    1. Paul Hilton, The Inheritance
    2. David Alan Grier, A Soldier’s Play
    3. Paul Alexander Nolan, Slave Play
    4. Ato Blankson-Wood, Slave Play
    5. John Benjamin Hickey, The Inheritance

    Director – Musical
    1. Alex Timbers, Moulin Rouge!
    2. Diane Paulus, Jagged Little Pill
    3. Phyllida Lloyd, Tina

    *I think the same three musicals will be nominated for Book of a Musical and all four design categories. Choreography will likely also follow suit, though I think A Christmas Carol has a slight chance at knocking out Jagged Little Pill there.

    Director – Play
    1. Stephen Daldry, The Inheritance
    2. Matthew Warchus, A Christmas Carol
    3. Robert O’Hara, Slave Play
    4. Kenny Leon, A Soldier’s Play
    5. David Cromer, The Sound Inside

    *I might be crazy for omitting Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal), but will his minimalist approach hurt him here in favor of “bigger” productions?

    Score
    1. The Inheritance
    2. The Lightning Thief
    3. The Rose Tattoo
    4. The Sound Inside

    *I made a last minute switch and I think Slave Play gets eliminated here. I’ll probably regret that. But honestly this category is so up in the air due to the lack of musicals competing that ANY of these contenders could be snubbed.

    Orchestrations
    1. Moulin Rouge!
    2. Jagged Little Pill
    3. A Christmas Carol

    Well the nominations were announced, and Lightning Thief was egregiously overlooked, as all the Best Score nominees were straight plays. At least music from straight plays is getting recognized.

    Danny Burstein’s probably going to finally win his first Tony. He’s long overdue at this point, this being his seventh nomination, but they say seven is a lucky number. Plus, I could see some voters wanting to give him a virtual hug for all that’s gone through in the past year, with his wife Rebecca Luker being diagnosed with ALS and Danny himself nearly dying of COVID-19.

    Yes, Danny might get the sympathy vote.

    So far COVID-19 claimed Nick Cordero, Terrence McNally and Adam Schlesinger among others. And Trump recovered, thanks to advanced medical treatment most Americans can’t afford, paid for with more tax dollars than he’s contributed over the past decade, and now he’s saying that doctors are fakes. What’s is this world coming to?
