The nice thing for A Soldier’s Play is that Charles Fuller would share in the Tony if it wins thanks to the recent rule change.February 14, 2020 at 11:24 am #1203346997
Nifty episode. All three of the stories worked. Vergara has been the MVP for me this season.

Put me in the camp that doesn’t care for “No Time to Die”. It seems to be building to something that never comes, and it’s positively weird to hear this infant singing midlife crisis lyrics.
Still excited for the movie, though. Phoebe!February 10, 2020 at 6:52 am #1203341392
Do you think they’ll give a Tony for Best Theatrical Event? Or perhaps a special award for David Byrne?
Neither American Utopia nor Freestyle Love Supreme invited Tony nominators or voters, so we won’t have a Theatrical Event award. They could still choose to give a Special Tony Award for extraordinary contribution to the theatre to Byrne, but I’d be surprised.February 9, 2020 at 6:33 pm #1203338500

The reason we don’t have a host is to avoid useless shit like this. Move onFebruary 8, 2020 at 3:09 pm #1203335300
Nathan Lane has confirmed that he and Laurie Metcalf will be starring in Death of a Salesman in spring 2021, to be directed by Joe Mantello. Love the cast, but do we really need another revival of this?February 6, 2020 at 2:42 pm #1203333173

Miss Saigon did basically the same thing a couple of years ago, where they recorded three performances and cut them together for a theatrical release through Fathom Events. There was never any consideration for awards from that undertaking, though it did well at the box office.
I’m glad I saw the original cast live at the time, but it cost me $200 and now I could see it for a lot less in a movie theater… hm. I wonder if this will have any effect on the box offices for all the productions around the world.February 1, 2020 at 8:57 pm #1203324689

There’s nothing in the release about either Freestyle Love Supreme or American Utopia. I’m guessing those didn’t invite Tony voters?January 30, 2020 at 12:04 pm #1203320122
The season finale of Maisel (“A Jewish Girl Walks into the Apollo…”) is an absolutely killer reel for Brosnahan. Far better even than the one that won it for her in 2018. If submissions matter even a little, that is the one to beat.
Borstein has a great reel with either “It’s Comedy or Cabbage” or “Marvelous Radio”. I prefer the latter because it ends with Susie giving Sophie ten kinds of hell on the street in front of the theater.
Shalhoub is more vulnerable this year because his storyline wasn’t as good. But his scenes with Jason Alexander in “Kind of Bleu” were gold.
With the Fleabag ladies out, Hinkle will probably get in again, but she’s destined to be an also-ran. Though “It’s the Sixties, Man!” is a nice reel. She’s particularly funny venting her spleen on the young boy in the family meeting.
I see the show missing out on writing again this year. The focus wasn’t quite as tight this season and most of the episodes wandered some, though there were many brilliant scenes.
Surely “It’s Comedy or Cabbage” will be the Directing submission and it will likely make it in. That’s also likely the submission for the design and technical categories because it was a tour de force for the production design, cinematography, sound, and editing.January 28, 2020 at 9:07 am #1203316588
All good performances, but I would rank:
If we assume that Zellweger, Phoenix, Dern, and Pitt are the frontrunners for the acting Oscars, who is at most risk (even if it’s only slight) for an upset?
