2019 Tony Awards Predictions & Best Bets

Here's how we called it prior to the announcement of winners at the 2019 Tony Awards:

This year's sure thing is "The Ferryman", which was the leading contender since it opened. Place your bets on this one for Best Play.

For Best Musical, it's a toss-up between popular favorites "Tootsie" and "Hadestown" while "Oklahoma!" practically walks away with Best Revival of a Musical.

For Best Revival of a Play, look to "Waverly Place", along with a Best Actress win for it's star, show biz legend Elaine May, who has earned her first ever Tony nomination this year. Finally, front runners in the Best Actor category include Jeff Daniels in “To Kill a Mockingbird” with a slight edge by Bryan Cranston to take the Tony for his star performance in "Network."
