  1. Bette wasn't even nominated? That's so sad! :(

  2. No Bombshell? I thought they had it in the bag!

  3. Being a theatre professional, I know playwrights prefer to be called that term, rather than "Author." Or just use "by."

    And ya think Kenny Posner might just have the odds in winning the LD Award?

  4. Every nominee for Best Musical started out as a so-so film. Congratulations on a great year, Broadway!

  5. God, just look at these nominees and you realize how far American theater has sunk since its heyday 50-60 years ago. A long, steady decline that seems to have finally reached rock bottom.

    Really sad.
