I haven't seen enough of the nominees to have a fair assessment. But I do have a soft spot for James Monroe Iglehart, my first Mitch Mahoney. And Ruthie's mom in Bat Boy. :)

Really hoping that this will be Jessie Mueller's year. And I wouldn't complain about a tie between Cherry and Audra, either!

Also, James Monroe Iglehart for Featured would be such a great win.

I hope Gentleman's Guide and Act One win.

I'd like to see Cherry Jones win.

But what I'd like most of all is to see Mark Rylance lose in both categories. It's too bad he was even nominated for either of those performances. Unfortunately, he is now more likely to win at least one award, if not both.

Ugh.

The only category that I am really invested in now is Lead Actor in a Musical. I saw Les Mis on Sunday and during "Bring Him Home" I truly felt intoxicated...or like I was getting an injection of morphine intravenously. I have seen a lot of performances, but no one has ever given me that kind experience before. I am seeing Hedwig on 5/10. NPH is going to have to really amaze me for me to pull for him over Ramin.

The ones I'd pull for against odds (though some will indeed be odds-on favorites):

Play
OUTSIDE MULLINGAR (easily the play that most delighted me this year and stands as the best combination of production and text head and shoulders above the rest to me.)

Actress in a Musical
Jessie Mueller's time has come, as she carried BEAUTIFUL on her shoulders to 7 nominations. But if Sutton wins again, she's the only performer in that field who I'd think beat Jessie on the merits of her performance.

Featured Actress in a Play
Celia Keenan-Bolger in MENAGERIE was both the most heartbreaking Laura I've ever seen and the most fully-realized emotional breadth and depth I've ever seen from her.

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 anymore…I 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.
