I thought the show was so well done and Ariana DeBose did one of the best hosting jobs at any awards show that I’ve seen in years. She HAS to be a shoo-in for an Emmy. As for the results, I do have to say I’m not that surprised A Strange Loop didn’t win more because I saw MJ last week and I was totally taken aback at how great it was. I wasn’t expecting that at all. I was also really impressed by Myles Frost. I think the Tonys wanted to spread the wealth so all of the shows would get a bump even giving GFTNC the orchestrations award. All in all, very satisfied with the awards.June 10, 2022 at 6:57 am #1204978885
This makes the Tonys much more interesting this year. I still think the favorites will win in the end, but I like the excitement of not knowing. It’s interesting that the voters poll gets bigger every year. A poll of 181 from about 650 is a huge. That’s about 25-30%.June 3, 2022 at 8:27 pm #1204972079
The Tonys are always predictable and this year will be no different. The NY Times voters poll will be almost 100% correct as usual.May 31, 2022 at 12:51 am #1204968030
41 was terrible, but 42 was great. Mike should’ve won, but the jury almost always votes out of emotion and not who played the best game. That’s why most of the time the people who should win… don’t.May 31, 2022 at 12:43 am #1204968025
I love the video for Harry Styles’ Daylight, directed by James Corden. I think what they did with it was great for $300 and extremely funny how they made it. Would it be eligible?May 21, 2022 at 11:10 pm #1204959846
Also, I wouldn’t say Ron’s decisions are killing the show, since the show seems to be thriving. Peacock is cancelling series that I would assume are popular and making more Beyond Salem.
I think what they’re doing with Beyond Salem is really the future of soaps. I’m surprised its success hasn’t led to Y&R or B&B doing something on Paramount+ or GH doing something on Hulu. What an amazing moment it would be if Beyond Salem were to win the Drama Series Emmy.May 21, 2022 at 11:03 pm #1204959842
This is an award voted on by audiences/regular people so I’m sure whoever voted wanted Sutton to finally win. It’s more of a popularity contest.May 13, 2022 at 11:39 pm #1204951545
I know I’m in the minority on this board, but I love the devil possession storyline. The show needs a permanent villain like it used to have with Stefano, but now that Stefano is gone, the devil is filling that void. I would be ok without the devil as long as there was a villain without any redeeming qualities. It’s not fun when you have someone do bad things and then have remorse for them later on. That’s what made Stefano so great. He never tried to be this lovable guy.May 13, 2022 at 9:27 pm #1204951521
No, they shouldn’t combine the performance categories. And I’m not going to waste my time giving you a reason why. The only thing that needs to be changed is they should allow joint nominations again, which is why none of the SIX girls got nominated. It’s sheer stupidity that you can nominate one person in a category and give them the win (which is more egregious) and not rightly let there be a joint nomination like the Oliviers allow. Granted, I don’t considered last year’s awards to be real, but they really need to change the rule back.May 7, 2022 at 12:16 pm #1204945506
I wonder what the soaps submitted for Writing & Directing?
I have a feeling Beyond Salem must have submitted the Jewelry Heist storyline, I think they will win Directing with this. DAYS must have submitted the Exorcism storyline, I HOPE NOT. I hope they submitted Abe’s 40th which could possibly win them Writing. DAYS did win WGA and MOST of the time, a soap wins WGA doesn’t usually repeat the Daytime Emmys. We’ll see. GH, don’t know DON’T CARE. Y&R probably submitted Ashland & Victoria’s wedding and HOPING they submit Neil Winters episode and if so, they could win Writing; I also think they submitted this for Directing; possibly Nick & Adam in the cellar.
The WGA winner is picked by a select committee not by the voting body at-large so I would never go by their winner as a predictor for the Daytime Emmy. Two totally different voters – that’s why they don’t align too often.May 5, 2022 at 6:59 pm #1204943582
Last I heard was that any currently airing actors/actresses could not submit for both DAYS and BEYOND SALEM if they played the same characters on the show (same if they played that character during the year at any time on the main show), they had to pick one or the other and I believe Corday Productions has full control of that process and who was entered for what. DAYS used to have a totally hands off system, but now most of the shows Emmy submissions, picks ect are totally handled by the show.
I believe some of the BEYOND SALEM actors who were not on the main show, could have submitted only in Guest as they were not airing long enough to quality for the main categories. I am a bit surprised more didn’t end up in the Guest category, but that is a very bloated category to begin with.
This makes sense, thanks for the explanation. I was hoping Eileen Davidson would be nominated for BEYOND SALEM.May 5, 2022 at 2:23 pm #1204943353
Can someone explain to me why Beyond Salem didn’t get any acting nominations? Was it eligible? Also, this may not be good for it and Days because they both could very well cancel each other out in Drama Series.May 3, 2022 at 9:36 pm #1204941397
Due to low grosses, the Broadway revival of for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf is set to end its limited run early. It will play its final performance on May 22nd.
With Tony nominations set to be announced this Monday, it should be interesting to see how the production will do there and if it could get some sort of boost at the box office as a result.
I think if they thought they had a shot at winning the Play Revival Tony then they would’ve tried to stay open longer, but the race is really between How I Learned To Drive and Take Me Out.May 1, 2022 at 11:42 pm #1204939377
At this point, I think it’s possible for Pass Over to be a lone Best Play nominee like Disgraced back in 2015.
I think you should rephrase this statement because it’s very confusing. You mean that Pass Over will only have one nomination and it will be in Best Play. The way you wrote it, you’re saying there will be only one Best Play nominee and it will be Pass Over.Not now
