    The only thing we know for sure before the nominations is that this year will have the worst Best Original Score winner ever.

    They really did “The Lightning Thief” dirty. Ryan Knowles gave one of the best performances of the year and absolutely deserved a nomination.

    Not Aaron Tveit being the only nominee, they could’ve nominated The Lightning Thief there and Original Score (BARF!).

    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!

    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.

    For the first time ever, I can say that I have seen every single one of the nominees in the musical-specific categories, lol.

    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.

    So does Aaron Tevit automatically win? How did he end up the only nominee?
