So happy to see Bloody Bloody sucky show, I mean, Andrew Jackson with so few nominations. And it's my prediction that the few that it has will be worth naught. Zilch. "Best book for a musical" will go to Book of Morman and best
scenic design, I'm going out on a limb here, will go to Scottsboro Boys. Truthfully, I didn't see 'Mormon but the couple of friends who did said it rocked. I did see Scottsboro Boys and thought it was fantastic. Although the design of the show was simplistic it was imaginative and creative. Very effective.

I would have liked to see more for Bengal Tiger especially (not a fan of Good People or MFer with the Hat) or maybe even Lombardi, but there were a lot of great plays this season

ummm Catch me if You Can is a joke and should have been replaced by Bloody Bloody and Sister Act should have been replaced with Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

House of Blue Leaves should have been best revival of a play but again a lot of great stuff this year

I would have loved to see Dan Lauria for Lombardi, Ben Stiller- House of Blue Leaves, or Robin Williams- Bengal Tiger (LOVED THIS SHOW!)

Benjamin Walker for Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and Daniel Radcliffe for Ht$ - two very disappointing snubs

On the whole I was pleased with the nominees for the 2011 Tony Awards.
But they snubbed James Earl Jones-DRIVING MISS DAISY;Joel Grey-ANYTHING GOES;and-DANIEL RADCLIFFE- HT$IB? Oooh well CEST LA VIE.
