I love cynthia! and sex and the city!!

# 2

What Katie Holmes did not get nominated for her play All My Sons??

What is up with that???

# 3

Young people today are so stupid and have probably not even heard of any of these grand actors and actresses which have been nominated for their great performances.
Seriously — Katie Holmes?!?! She is a terrible actress. Go watch a Laurence Olivier movie.

# 4

@LEE: I’m not surprised at all ,katie was Awful and All My Sons team ended up with empty handed

# 5

Shrek and Pal Joey are two of the worst things I’ve ever seen in my life.

# 6

Hair didn’t get nominated for best revival? Did it switch to broadway too late to be in the running?

# 7

next to normal was absolutely fabulous.
and the whole cast is ridiculously nice in real life (:

WHERE’S GREASE?! That should be nominated.

# 9

Gee, what a surprise no Katie Holmes. No All My Sons. Gosh, golly, gee, what is the world coming to. Absolutely amazing that KH wasn’t nominated. MAGICAL. Awesome.
Glad the Tonys showed some backbone and common sense and left this no talent ‘tommy boy bought the part’ for her off the awards.

Did anybody besides me think that Impressionism was an excellent play?
I think that Jeremy Irons, Joan Allen and Marsha Mason all deserved nominations

What? no Seagull? No Angela Lansbury? No all My Sons and no Katie Holmes,Patrick Wilson and even John Lithgow?

Funny how the Tony like the Oscars also differs from the Broadway Fans awards. They highly favor Angela Lansbury,Susan Sarandon and Katie Holmes.

The only thing I love and stand by is White Christmas. Rock of Ages and All my Sons were so robbed esp the cast.

Kristin Scott Thomas and Katie Holmes deserved a nod. I also hope Twilight dominates the MTV awards….

it’s unbelievable that Daniel Radcliffe didn’t get a nomination for his performance in Equus! He was just AMAZING , I still can’t believe, it’s so unfair !… =/
It seems Tony Awards are like the Oscars ¬¬

melissa asherman @ 05/06/2009 at 2:08 am

I loved Shrek. I hope it gets something

melissa asherman @ 05/06/2009 at 2:08 am

I loved Shrek. I hope it gets something

@jroc: I

It’s a revival and is nominated in that category!

@liuytfhgj:
It was eligible and was nominated LAST year

i hate this ***** so bad
since sex in the city
i always knew she was a lesbian, even when i was a little kid, this vibe just came out of her hinting lesbian

The revival of West Side Story was crap! One of the best musicals ever written was destroyed. Politics will take the day and West Side will probably win.

Billy Elliot should take best new musical. Genius!

Shrek the Musical is extraordinarily witty and the music is fantastic. Shrek haters need to be knocked off their lofty towers. We need theater that is fun, clever and easy on the ears. Can’t wait to get the rights to put it up in my theater.

Guys and Dolls was surprisingly good. Platt’s performance was a bit flat but the staging and energy was irresistible.

Thought I would see more from Blithe Spirit. I loved it.

@Bonnie plyler: Wonderful, yes…at least Andre DeShields should have been nominated…he stole the show!

Angela Lansbury!!!! She was so incredible in her role as she always is!
Billy Elliot, best musical I have seen (Next to Les mis that is)!!!!!

casey Daly @ 06/02/2009 at 8:56 pm

where is the equus cast sound design give me a royal break

dharmajoy @ 06/03/2009 at 4:43 pm

To the person who said the revival of West Side Story is crap – I wish they had more crap like that on Broadway! I saw that crappy show twice and I’m thinking of seeing it a 3rd time (and I’ve been to many, many Broadway musicals over the years).

Thanks Jared for the full list! I see that “Shrek” the musical should win all of them! LOL!
Frankly speaking, “Next to Normal” was the WORST broadway show I have EVER seen. The lyrics to the songs were laughable!
