And the winner of the Tony Pool is . . .
I scored a pretty disappointing 18 out of 26 in my own personal Tony Pool this year. I feel like I should give my iPad back!
But how did you do?
Well, get this . . .
In looking at what the majority of you Tony Pool players thought . . . you scored a 23 out of 26! That's right . . . you are now the best predictors of the Tonys on the planet! (And two of the awards the aggregate got wrong were design awards). Next year, all eyes are going to be on what you think is going to win.
Speaking of winning, let's get to the winners of the Pool!
This year, the Producer's Perspective Tony Pool grand prize winner is . . .
Judson R. from Lawrenceville, Georgia, with an almost perfect score of 25 out of 26! Wowza, Judson! If I were the NY Times, I'd be calling you for your predictions next year.
Congrats, Judson, you're taking home an iPad!
Our first prize winner of an Amazon Kindle is . . . Neil R., who is also from Georgia (it's a big Tony pickin' state down there, apparently). Congratulations, Neil! The Kindle ain't an iPad, but I gotta tell you, it's pretty awesome.
And our second prize of a $50 Amazon.com gift certificate goes to Roberta H. from Oconomowoc, WI.
Unfortunately, no one nabbed the perfect score bonus of $100 bucks. But since I was prepared to pay that out anyway, I'm going to donate it to one of the great programs at TDF.
But we did need that tie-breaker! Marian screwed us all with that zero-second speech, so the ties went to the person closest to zero.
Winners, we'll be contacting you about your stuff shortly. Watch that inbox.
Now, who's got predictions for next year's Tonys? Will Daniel Radcliffe win Best Actor for How To Succeed? Will Scottsboro Boys win best score? Will Godspell take the Tony for Best Revival? :-)
