    I believe 60% or more of voters have to actually cast a vote for him to win. So it’s basically a “yes” or “fuck you” thing.

    Aaron and the guy from Lighting Theif were voted on by a Yes or No vote by the committee. They needed to get more than 50% of that vote to recieve the nomination. Aaron did. Now the Tony voters have to vote for him by at least 60% for him to win the award (which is pretty much guaranteed)

    I guess this will be the first in Tony history that a play wins score. Cool.

    I wonder why Best Actor in A Musical wasn’t announced as an Special Tony or something.

    Did Tveit need to get at least 50% of votes to win or something? Like that time at the emmys when Phineas and Ferb & Spongebob were nominated and both lost because none of them got enough votes.

    The general voters still have to vote for Aaron to win.

    So, will they award Burnap or Hiddleston?

    I guess Parker, Alan Grier and Smith are the most likely winners from the plays part, right?

    WTF? Aaron Tveit has no competition? He just wins the Tony by default? That’s so stupid. The category shouldn’t have been awarded at all if the competition was that decimated from the pandemic. The overinflation of nominations is a hot mess and shows exactly why the Tonys shouldn’t have proceeded this cycle.

    This is Laura’s 5th nomination, she deserves to win already.

    On the topic of Aaron, the least the Tonys could have done is to nominate the only other eligible person to at least have a “competition”, even if Aaron is always going to win.

    If they think the other nominee was not worthy, I don’t see why they should have nominated them.

    Yesterday I posted my predictions and only contained Aaron because I saw this coming, Percy Jackson wasn’t about to be nom just for the sake of it.

    Does anyone else think “Slave Play” could go home empty-handed? I just finished entering my predictions and I currently don’t have it winning anything.

    It strikes me as too polarizing to win Best Play or Best Director over “The Inheritance.” Paul Hilton & David Alan Grier seem to be the favorites for Featured Actor and Lois Smith looks like a good bet for Featured Actress. That Lead Actress race is going to be interesting as all 4 women received excellent reviews and I could see any one of them winning although I’m currently predicting Mary-Louise Parker.

    In the technical categories “The Sound Inside” received rave reviews for its lighting and I think it will win there. I’ve got “A Christmas Carol” winning for Sound, Scenic Design and Costumes. Best Score will be an interesting race and I can see myself going back and forth on that one before settling on a prediction.

    What does everyone else think? Could “Slave Play” join “The Scottsboro Boys” and “Mean Girls” in Tony Awards history for most nominations without a win?

    Everyone keeps saying Aaron wins by default but it seems to me like he still has to get 60% of voters to vote him as “worthy”, so technically there’s a chance he could be the only nominee in the category and still lose.

    I would feel so bad for him, but that would also be hilarious

    Did these literally nominate one person in an acting category? Rofl.

    There were only 2 people eligible in the category. Do some research boo.
