What's the practical difference between this and the "ranting" thread? Are we supposed to put all the negative reactions there, while putting all the neutral and positive comments here? That will make for some rich debate!

I always start a rant thread to keep the board readable and sane. If you want to ignore that one and rant here is ok too.

Listen, I don't take my clothes off for anyone, even if it is "artistic". - JANICE

It's music or score. If you've seen the production, you'll see why it's nominated.

I was shocked by this, but also by the fact that neither of them were for FROZEN.

Watching those two stumble over saying Spongebob Squarepants is giving me LIFE!

Honestly, this is warming me up to Leslie Odom Jr. as a person - I always knew he was insanely talented, but he's SO warm and funny this morning.

Oh my god, Katherine McPhee need to never host anything again in her life. Had to mute it and just look at the screen beside them.

No one gives a damn about the list of shows you've seen.

James McArdle is the first notable "snub" so far for me.

James McArrdle's role was much harder than Michael Cera's but IMO Cera just did it better.
