Probably Best Musical and Best Score, but beyond that, it's hard to tell this early when most of the shows haven't even entered previews yet.
George and Stephanie Ft Actor/Actress in a musical....scoreorchestrationssound design
I know next to nothing about this show, but I hope I love it seeing I spent $199 per ticket to see it!
if we are being realistic, zero.

i was speaking for myself.

Having seen the show twice off-Broadway, I'd say Jason Tam had the standout performance overall. I also thought Will Roland was great, but that's going to be a tough category to break into." Jason Tam may be giving the better performance, but George Salazar is the one with the showstopper that everyone knows, so that might give him the edge. At the very least, I can see Michael in the Bathroom being Be More Chill's performance at the ceremony, assuming it does perform.

And maybe beetlejuice For new musicals and kiss me Kate and Oklahoma competing with them in acting awards I would think none. Maybe one if it manages to sneak in somewhere but I doubt it"Choir Boy does have music, but it'd still compete as a play, right?

I think the only nomination "lock" would be featured actor for Salazar. Beyond that, totally up in the air. It's a pretty crowded season and I still think that Ain't Too Proud or Beetlejuice could push it out for things like Best Musical and Book and such. Score and lights are the other two I think it's got a strong chance at but at the end of the day it's a show with a very acquired taste that could very well get mostly shut out. Fan favorite does not equal big nominations.
Based on merit? Nonebased on the politics of the voters... something like score
It could win Best Musical...or it could not be nominated. BMC's critical reception, grosses, and adult word-of-mouth is going to be a factor, along with the critical praise for other shows. Right now, the score is its only lock for a nomination.Hadestown and Tootsie seem to be formidable Best Musical contenders, with ~6 shows vying for the 2-3 other slots (The Prom, Ain't Too Proud, BMC, Pretty Woman, The Cher Show, and Beetlejuice). In the acting categories, it's possible that a few shows could get 4-6 noms each: Oklahoma, Kiss Me Kate, and Hadestown.
IF the NYT gives another I-don’t-get-it review of BMC, are there any examples from history of shows that were massive fan favorites, did not receive critical acclaim, and ended up winning Best Musical?NY Times on Be More Chill is like:https://youtu.be/v2gCadq9xQM
