It’s time for the Tony Awards again! What a year of Broadway productions. Hollywood stars did not fare well with regard to nominations, but that is only because they were performing alongside some major Broadway talent. This year the nominations were presented by Lucy Liu and Jonathan Groff, with a surprise appearance from this year’s host, Hugh Jackman.
