Who I Think Will be Nominated for a Tony 2016 (and Who Actually Was)

cynthia-erivo-the-color-purpleWho I Think Will be Nominated for a Tony 2016 (And Who Actually Was)

by Ross

So here is my predictions: who I think will be nominated come Tuesday morning for the coveted Tony Award.  It is definitely not a list of who I’d like to get nominated, for sure.  In brackets after a prediction are the ones I would prefer in their place. (It is hard to keep track, 4 or 5 nominations, and I probably got a few wrong categories for certain people, but this is my attempt. Let’s see how many I get wrong, or on a more positive note, get right. I ended up with 83/107 correct). Click on the red links after a picture for the blog review.
Now that the announcement has been made, I added the real nominations. In regards to my predictions:

Here are the nominations!

✅ is the nomination I guessed correctly

❌ is the where I got it wrong. So sorry!

and the * is who I think will win. but check out my other blogs (Five Parts) on my predictions.

Read, like, share, retweet, enjoy.
