It's a shame it's not going to win best revival.

South Pacific will win Lighting Design, Sunday (with its projections) will probably win Set Design.

Other than that, I think you are pretty much right on.

I know this has already been posted, but are SITPWG's projections being considered set design? If that's the case, I'll need to fix that.

Agree with just about all that you wrote, except that I think
Miranda wins, and Butler gets nomination over (as much as I loved her in "TLM) Sierra.

I can't help but think that In the Heights will win best choreography. I have never seen a show with choreography that so furthered the plot as the choreography in In the Heights. At times, it really did carry the story, and it is so inventive and fresh that it would really be a shame if andy blankenbuehler didn't take a prize home for it. (And not just any prize- a Tony, y'all.)

Isn't Boyd Gaines eligible in the leading category?

And I think Butler will get the nod over Bogess.

I agree with munk- Kerry Butler will get the nod over Bogess.

I agree with you Ryan on BEST MUSICAL, REVIVAL, ACTOR, ACTRESS, FEATURED ACTOR & ACTRESS, BOOK, SETS..almost everything except:

though I think that they will give something to PASSING STRANGE which is probably BEST SCORE. I dont know about chreography .. I think IN THE HEIGHTS (Andy Blankenbuehler) will win!

I don't know about that, the Tonys love to recognize newcomers, so I wouldn't be surprised if the Mermaid took it.
