    Well obviously Michael Douglas will be firing one of his letters off to the judging panel again - like with the Oscars, and the prison authorities - begging that CZJ being the overall winner. If that is not the outcome he will winge to whomever that the media was resposnsible for her losing.

    Stamos was robbed, I thought he would get something for Bye Bye Birdie and didnt American Idiot come out like a week ago it hasnt proven itself to be a good show because it sold out the first few shows ..every show is sold out in the first few weeks.. these awards are bullshit

    screw all them, I nominate the T-shirt vendor in time square who ran over to the mounted police officer and showed him the smoking pathfinder and saved all their sorry butts on broadway. Give THAT GUY some recognition on Tony night.

    American Idiot should be flagged as Perez-friendly, perhaps? The Original Cast album released last month is just awesome, and it deserves the Tony, IMO.



  5. 5

    Yea I'm thinking American Idiot is a lot like Oboma's Nobel prize just too soon.



  6. 6

    The best actor in a play list looks like a 90's roster from Miramax.



  7. 7

    Wait–didn't they use to separate the musical actresses from new/revival?
    I'm rooting for Sherie Rene!! I loooooovee Everyday Rapture!!! And no question she had me amazed at her voice, and laughing/crying at her life story. Makes me wonder how true/close to home ER is to Sherie's life.

    Memphis FTW…..American Idiot, lame. But it was slim pickins this year I guess

    Green Day will turn the Tony Awards into the Phony Awards. American Idiot is the only song they are known for, so how are they deserving of a nomination? Most people in the music industry (except for JLo) can't make a damn movie since they have no expertise. Remember Mariah Carey's "Glitter" movie that flopped like hell? I'm sure this "American Idiot" musical isn't going to be any different in quality. It will only be a matter of time before every celebrity jumps the bandwagon and wants to have their own musical.

    although i don't agree with american idiot getting nominated - there weren't many "original" musicals done this season most were revivals - all in all there is a TON of talented people that got nominated…VERY exctied that bobby steggert who was "brother" in ragtime - he's my favorite character in that show!!



  11. 11

    I THOUGHT AMERICAN IDIOT GOT BAD REVIEWS AND WAS HORRID…ISN'T THAT WHAT YOU REPORTED PERVEZ? WRONG AGAIN! NOT SURPRISING BASED ON YOUR TRACK RECORD, YOU CAN'T GET ANYTHING RIGHT! EVEN IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE BAND, PRODUCING AND WRITING A MUSICAL ISN'T EASY…LETS SEE PERVEZ TRY AND DO IT!

    Re: Midnight Empress – HOW ARE YOU SO SURE? HAVE YOU SEEN IT…NO, YOU'RE JUST TALKING OUT YOUR ASS LIKE A BLOGGER WE ALL KNOW AND DETEST!

    Re: Mancunian – He held open the door at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf on Sunset and Vine for me last year. He had the biggest beam on his face - such a lovely unassuming guy.

    Looks like American Idiot got the shaft. It's nominated for Best Musical but apparently no one was performing in it.



  16. 16

    american idiot started a week or 2 weeks ago and is already nominated??



  17. 17

    Re: Kateedid didn't- The "American Idiot" musical got lousy reviews, as I have read, so if they win, the Tony Awards will look like shit and be a joke just like most other award shows these days. BTW, typing in all caps makes YOU look like a joke because it's fuckin' childish, especially since you're the only one so far that has done it.

    I heard Cate Blanchett was fantastic in Streetcar. Why wasn't she nominated? I don't know from Tonys, so can somebody clue me in?

    Re: rsvp
    The production of Streetcar with Cate Blanchett played at the Brooklyn Academy of Music—not a Broadway theater—so it wasn't eligible for a Tony.
