But before we announce the winner, let's see how I did.
Thankfully, I improved over last year, scoring 21 out of 26 right. I went on a limb with a couple of my picks (Benanti over James, H2S over Anything Goes), and the surprise of the night was that there were no surprises. So, I'll take the B- (81%) and start prepping for next year.
How did you do?
If you remember, in addition to listing my predictions last week, I also listed what the majority of you thought would win. You improved over last year as well . . . and you scored a stellar 24 out of 26! I mean, do I not have the smartest readers on the planet or what? You guys even beat Ben! Seriously, future nominees, if you want to know if you should prepare a speech or not, look no further than the soothsayers known as the Producer's Perspective readers.
Ok, now on to the good stuff . . . who won the iPad 2?
It came down to the tiebreaker this year. We had 10 people guess a near perfect 25 out of 26 (!). But the person who picked 25 winners AND came closest to guessing the length of Athol Fugard's speech was . . .

For the rest of you, there is always next year. Because there are three sure things in life: death, taxes, and another Broadway season.
