I’m terribly prolific, I know.

But first, winners of most-at-first-random-pairing-of-presenters-until-you-learn-that-they’re-kinda-related (godfather-and-godson): Ben Vereen & Usher.

Thank goodness that Ebersole won! I would’ve lost all faith in the Wing voters had she not & with my track record tonight, I wouldn’t’ve been surprised if she had been robbed.
Audra, again, sorry. Hey 4 out of 6 ain’t bad.

Ebersole also wins for bare-necked-actress-with-the-most-ornate-earrings this evening.
Best Musical went to the gang of Spring Awakening, no big surprise there.
Lansbury closes out the show, on time. Take a lesson Oscar!
Be sure to check back in late Monday, June 11, 2007 at which time I will update my Tony’s coverage with pictures and more details that I couldn’t fit in during the commercial breaks.
I invite you to comment on your favorite moments of the evening, disagree with my analysis, add anything I may have missed, or just tell me what a great job I did on my first attempt at Live Blogging.
I’d love to hear from all of you out there in cyberspace. Good night!
