Those of us that play the Oscar nominating game have a little tradition on the eve of nominations which we call "No Guts, No Glory" -- This is where you get to prove your prediction 'glory' by throwing out ONE unexpected 'gutsy' nomination (or snub) that will be a surprise tomorrow morning.

The Tony Nominating committee historically loves to throw some curve balls - so think big. Anything could happen...

My NGNG predictions (I'll cite two to give an example):

Radcliffe shut out of Best Actor in a Musical race.
Scotsboro is a leader in nominations (second only to Morman)

War Horse - Best Original Score
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

I am beginning to fear that Catch Me will be shut out of all the major categories (musical/book/score) and it's only nomination might be for Butz.

In turn, I predict that there's a surprising upsurge of WOTV love (Benanti, LuPone, Scott, Score).
