So here are my remaining nomination predictions. Feel free to argue, discuss.
–next to normal
–Rock of Ages
–9 to 5
Watch me be wrong on those. I’m actually a bit uncertain about all three of those, except for “Billy Elliot”. But I’m going with these for the following reasons.
1). I think there is a greater chance of a show that’s open being nominated than a show that is closed. 2). “Rock of Ages” and “next to normal” are transfers from off-Broadway. 3). I don’t think that “Shrek” is getting much support.
Best Musical Revival
–Guys and Dolls
–West Side Story
These were the only revivals of musicals that opened this season. Although, I think “Hair” will win.
Best Revival of a Play
–Exit the King
–Joe Turner’s Come and Gone
–The Norman Conquests
Simply put, the critics adored these shows and they’re still running.
Also, I think Raul Esparza will be nominated for Best Performance by a Lead Actor in a Play for Speed-the-Plow. At least, I hope so.
