They sure won't predict the Tonys this year-the best work was done off-Broadway, so that eliminates that possibility.

Given that last year 26 of the 40 acting nominees ended up getting Tony nods, I'd say these do reflect the Tony nominations quite a bit (especially when you consider the Outer Critics include performances from off-Broadway shows, meaning many of the other 14 nominees weren't eligible for the Tonys).

I disagree. I don't believe an ANY way do they reflect Tony winners.

Are these the ones that are totally bizarre with left field nominations?

Or are those the Drama Desks? I always get them confused.

There aren't really any valid precursor awards for the Tonys, since the majority of the other awards also honor off-Broadway and thus skew things.

They're never an exact match for the Tonys, but last year's winners were Kinky Boots, Pippin, Vanya/Sonia, and Virginia Woolf. Showing up here (Broadway only, of course) isn't a guarantee for Tony attention, but it's a very good sign.

11:33....any word?

ETA: the reception is from 11:00am until 12:30am so I'm thinking it'll be a little while longer before they're read.

One Man, Two Guvnors was their favorite the year before too. We know how much Tony love that got.

^ and not even nominated for Best Play, the award the OCC gave it.

So, you know, selective hearing hears only what it selects.
Words don't deserve that kind of malarkey. They're innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they're no good anymoreÖI don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.

Remember the year Shrek was their big winner?!

Or the year Chitty Chitty Bang Bang topped their nominations?!

No, that can't happen because they are virtually the same as the Tonys!

Though, to be fair, the three Tony frontrunners that year for Best Play (Clybourne Park, Other Desert Cities, and Venus is Fur) weren't eligible because they had been nominated or were eligible in the off-Broadway category previously.

And the year Shrek won three awards, it matched the Tony's on one and the other two Tony's were won by people not eligible at the OCC's. Best Actor (the Billys weren't jointly eligible) and Actress (Ripley wasn't eligible b/c it had been off-broadway). Again--it's not consistent, but it's very, very often very close. Look back through.

Shrek won 4... Best Actor (the Billy boys weren't eligible for the OCC, and had they been not eligible for the Tony, BDJ probably would have won that too), Best Actress (Sutton tied with Scaglione for WSS due to Alice Ripley's ineligibility since Next to Normal was eligible the year before...both were nominated for Tonys), Best Costumes (it won the Tony for that), and Best Scenic Design (the only award it won that didn't line up with the Tonys).

I don't care whether they serve as augers or even semi-augers for the tony's or not. If anything, the theater awards season is more interesting when the different honoring organizations show at least some degree of independence.

But I am interested in what contributions they will recognize.

No prob, bjh--you were more accurate. I missed set design!

In general, I don't think there's an argument to be had. Sometimes things get wacky with them, and then there's the fact that they include off-Broadway which throws things out of wack, but looking back through the years, I was surprised by how much lined up! http://outercritics.org/awards/

#broadway Hollywood stars don't make OCC nominations except Michelle Williams. Idina Menzel frozen out

If that's true, that's a big snub.
