Ugh, for the first year, I'm actually still in the city for the nominations, and yesterday they consolidated rooms, so I'm in an open room with two other people. They're both sleeping, and I can't turn the TV on. Looks like I'll be listening on the Tony website...again. God, I hate my school.

I will hope that CATS and LES MIZ get a tony this year. They try every year, and never win! Keep your fingers crossed. I also wouldn't mind if the American Girl Show won either. Who is hosting this year? Tony Danza or Marie Osmond?

They are having live video and audio on the tony web site, you need to have a podcast on your computer to run it.

Not live. Delayed. The podcast will be available shortly after the nominations are announced.

Which brings the question- I guess they're not doing a live audio feed this year like in the past? re: 2006 Tony Award Nominations

There is no live audio feed. NY1 will get a podcast going.

Those of you who don't live in NY (like myself), CBS's Early Show will be airing the noms live at 8:30 EST.

Have fun! :)

The Tony website updates the nominees as they are announced, with a few seconds of delay, of course. So you won't get the whole list online at exactly 8:30.

However, I THINK the Early Show only broadcasts the main announcements. They cut in once the noms have reached acting awards and the musical/play ones. I know those are the ones that most people care about, but I really wanna hear all of them.

(at least, that's how it's been done in the past?)
