It's hard to get a parameter for Best Actress/Musical from this and the Drama Desks since Audra is in that category for LADY DAY.

Happy to see the Jefferson Mays love though.

Sorry to see the hype machine clanking in overdrive to shove Brown's leaden, dreary score down our throats.

History repeats: Sondheim scenario redux.

A depressing augury for our future musicals. As if the present ones aren't depressing enough.

Well, it lost best book to Gentleman's Guide, I'm thrilled to see, and lost best score to the dreary Bridges, which is the one gratifying thing about that award.

"Main Mazzie wins the Outer Critics Circle Award but doesn't score a Tony nomination ..."

This is one of the most puzzling Tony Award decisions. For a long time she was considered either the front runner or close to the front runner for winning this award but wasn't even nominated? Sometimes I wonder with an administrative error was made :P.

Geez A8-you just couldn't leave Fun Home well enough alone, could you.

I was already pissed off that it failed to take book or score (particularly score), but you had to trounce on that, didn't you, you miserable, grizzled old malcontent. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean there aren't people who do.

If Fun Home had moved this season, it would have won. These awards now will go to the Broadway shows running, so I guess you'll have plenty of opportunities to stomp all over the hearts of the people who really loved that show. And who are eagerly awaiting news of its transfer for next season.)

Dreaming,

Please don't take out your frustration and disappointment that your pet show didn't win everything in sight on me. It's childish and petulant. And it's not nice to call people names either.

Just because you worship a show doesn't mean everyone needs to. Nor does it mean it needs to win every award in sight either. Or any award at all, for that matter.

Stomping on hearts? Please. I'm just commenting on awards like everyone else here. Or are you saying there's only one reaction allowed?

Actually, you're just illustrating what I've been saying all along: mouth the party line ----or else!

I must say I expected better from you.

But be patient. Next spring, it'll sweep into town and rake in all the Tony Awards you can think of. And you'll be able to exult to your heart's content.

Honestly, while I love Marin Mazzie and usually find her spectacular, I agree with the Tony nominators not giving her a slot in Featured Actress. Something happened in the process of translation and the role lost all the things that made it special on film. I blame it on the poor script and bad direction and the fact the songs add nothing to the script. Cordero, on the other hand, had a knockout role.
Dreaming, it sucks FUN HOME wasn't more awarded. Listening to the cast recording, it's such an interesting score/show. I'm still trying to get "into" it 100%, but the same thing happened with CAROLINE, OR CHANGE and that is now in my top 3 al time favorite musicals.

I think the best course of action is to ignore AfterHate and his constant hatred toward shows that are (mostly) universally loved. If no one responds to his posts then he will hopefully stop trying to get a rouse out of everyone.

ray-I didn't think Mazzie deserved a nod. The more I saw after Bullets, the more I was convinced that she didn't deserve the nod.

Happy for Mazzie who at least deserved a tony nod. And surprised and happy for Corder who was truly fun.

Delighted for BRIDGES score, Jefferson Mays and Nick Cordero---all my hoped-for picks. Now, if only the Tonys would follow suit. Ah--if only.

I'm more surprised that Marin Won the Outer Critics then she didn't get a TONY nom. She is a wonderful Actress/Singer but the role was not developed well for the Musical.

It is interesting to see Cordero getting a lot of (well-deserved) attention. He does make something special of the character, sings great and dances in the most noticed dance routine in the show. It appears to me he is eclipsing James Iglehart who many were predicting would easily take the Featured Awards. Also the PR people of Bullets are doing a great job of getting Nick's face out everywhere on the net and TV. As usual Disney does not seem to be pushing James as strongly. They are featuring him in their spotlighted numbers but I notice the costumes and hunky dancers more than him in those spots. (but that's just me).

According to Riedel, Mazzie needed like, two more votes to have gotten a Tony nomination. Adrienne Lenox (I think) reportedly was in "5th place" and beat her by a nose.

Also, the Tonys and OCC have absolutely nothing in common with each other. I predict that Inglehart will win the Tony.
