- Jackman has the musical acting lead wrapped up, although Molina could get it for "Fiddler"
- No love for P.Diddy!

I just find it sad that Larry David got the shaft for his glowing portrayal of Max Bialystock :P

The NYTimes public editor rebukes the Tony system at the paper's website. It's an interesting read.

If Avenue Q wins Best Musical I would freak out and soil myself out of delight. Here's hoping! I'd rather see that win that Boy From Oz (the only other show nominated I saw), since that show's saving grace was Hugh Jackman. His energy and charisma blew me the hell away, and redeemed what is otherwise a pretty mediocre show (My brother and sister-in-law told had a lot of good things to say about Alfred Molina, though).

I saw Plummer in Lear at Stratford a few years back. Chillingly good. I wouldn't put it past him to pick up a Tony.

No mention of Robbin's "Imbedded." I wonder why! Haven't the Tony's always been a hotbed of political controversy?

You see, I thought just the opposite. Penn, while he was pretty good, was not as spectacular as I'd been led to believe by the critics. Robbins, on the other hand, I've never thought too much of as an actor, but he blew me away with his performance....
