Well I guess we know that a play is winning Score this year…October 15, 2020 at 9:11 am #1203780516
OH MY JAGGED LITTLE PILL TOTALLY OVERPERFORMING… AND TINA TURNER THE MUSICAL WOWOctober 15, 2020 at 9:14 am #1203780525
WAIT… DID THAT JUST HAPPENED?October 15, 2020 at 9:16 am #1203780533
They really did “The Lightning Thief” dirty. Ryan Knowles gave one of the best performances of the year and absolutely deserved a nomination.October 15, 2020 at 9:21 am #1203780545
Not Aaron Tveit being the only nominee, they could’ve nominated The Lightning Thief there and Original Score (BARF!).October 15, 2020 at 9:24 am #1203780558
Dang! They really hated The Lightning Thief! I expected it to at least get a tech nom or something, but nope.
Every category is Jagged Little Pill vs Moulin Rouge vs Tina!
Happy to see Jake Gyllenhaal nominated for his first Tony!October 15, 2020 at 9:26 am #1203780562
Slave Play has broken the record for most nominations for a play with 12, breaking the revival of Angels in America, which had 11 (the same as The Inheritance this year)
Jagged Little Pill has 15, 1 shy of tying the record set by Hamilton.October 15, 2020 at 9:29 am #1203780571
Where the hell is Kyle Soller! GrrrOctober 15, 2020 at 9:34 am #1203780585
For the first time ever, I can say that I have seen every single one of the nominees in the musical-specific categories, lol.October 15, 2020 at 9:47 am #1203780598
On the musical side, it’s Jagged Little Pill with 15, Moulin Rouge with 14, and Tina with 12, so Tony voters really made a point to skunk The Lightning Thief, even blocking Chris McCarrell from being a Tony nominee. Everything else went true to form, as far as I’m concerned, and I suspect MR will sweep most of the categories, with Tina likely only winning for lead actress and Jagged Little Pill likely only winning for featured actress (although a vote split there could still end up benefiting Robyn Hurder).
On the play side, Slave Play with 12 and The Inheritance with 11 dominate and these are much more difficult races to call. A Solider’s Play managed 7 and The Sound Inside managed 6, so they could surprise in many places. Grand Horizons really underperformed, especially with its great cast, and The Great Society was completely shut out. But the play categories are definitely moreso the ones to watch this year, as I suspect everyone already knew.
