Let’s talk about those Tony Award Nominations // Did Aaron Tveit Automatically Win?

….so we need to talk about the 2020 Tony Award nominations. Let’s discuss Aaron Tveit, The Lightning Thief, and why this year’s noms (or lack-thereof) feel almost mean
🌻🌻 OPEN ME 🌻🌻

Hey theatre friends! A few days ago, the 2020 Tony Award Nominations were officially announced. And boy were they….interesting! To start off, due to the #Broadway shutdown only 4 musicals were eligible for nomination: Jagged Little Pill, Moulin Rouge, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, and The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical.

Yet, #TheLightningThief didn’t receive a single nomination, including Best Leading Actor in a Musical. Therefore, the *only* actor nominated for that award was fan fave Aaron Tveit. You may know him from Next to Normal, Catch Me If You Can, Les Mis, Gossip Girl, and a new Hallmark movie that my mom is going to love. So does this mean he automatically wins? NOPE.

Let’s discuss! Share all of your Tony Award Nomination thoughts in the comments down below!!
