Tony Awards 2015 Predictions – The Results!

Tony Awards 2015 Predictions – The Results!

So? How did I do?

Out of 24 categories, I got 20 predictions correct. I missed out on two big ones – best musical and best supporting actor in a musical. But in both cases, the winner exceeded my expectations! Going with the winner I thought SHOULD win, over the winner I thought WOULD win. Thrilling!

If anyone needs help in their betting pools, clearly I’m a pro at this.
