    I’ve got a feeling there will be at least one tie on Sunday, since there are so many hotly contested categories (: I’m kinda hoping for a tie or two…

    Here are categories where it could happen, maybe:

    Lead Actor in a Musical (Harris and Mays; they tied at the Drama Desks)
    Lead Actress in a Play (Jones and McDonald)
    Featured Actress in a Musical (Hall and Worsham)
    Director of a Musical (Mayer and Tresnjak)
    Score (Brown and Lutvak/Freedman)
    Orchestrations (Brown and Sidwell)

    Any other potential ties??

    There have only been 10 ties in the history of the Tony Awards and there are close races every year. With 800+ voters, it’s just not statistically likely. Though it’s fun when it happens (especially Best Original Score in 1993).

    I’ll be overjoyed if a tie happens, but Im not predicting it. Featured Actress in a Musical would be my choice for the tie, Director of a Musical too. But tie in the precursors are more common because they are decided by a very small number of voters.  Theres almost 850 Tony voters I believe, which makes a tie very hard to come by.

    I’m not a fan of ties. There should only be one winner.

    I’m fine with ties, I’ve given a few in my personal Oscar world.

    That being said, the only categories I would support a tie in are Actor (Harris and Mays) and Actress (Mueller and O’Hara) in a Musical.

    Hedwig should be a sole director winner. I liked Gentleman’s Guide (didn’t love it) and found many aspects of it award-worthy but found its direction bland (with the exception of “I’ve Decided to Marry You” which was expertly done).
