What does Bobo know ...

... about the Tonys this year? Nothing. But that won't prevent him from venturing some predictions for winners during Sunday night's 8 pm awards show:

History Boys over Lt. of Inishmore, but not by as much as you might think
Drowsy Chaperone will upset Jersey Boys (more regional appeal in the latter, but lovers of showtunes will vote for DC)
Richard Griffiths (Ron Weasley's father in Harry Potter!)
Cynthia Nixon for Rabbit Hole (many surprised, she's so closely identified with Sex in the City; BTW, I'm finishing LIndsay-Abaire's Kimberly Akimbo, which is bittersweet and better than Fuddy Meers, which was disappointing in being so ostentatiously wacky)
Actor Musical: Michael Cerveris will upset pretty boy Harry Connick Jr.
Patti Lupone will help Sweeney sweep the two top musical acting awards
Revivals: Faith Healer in a slight upset over Awake and Sing; and Sweeney Todd
EW thinks Tony voters will reward Drowsy Chaperone with Book and Music, as a kind of booby prize for not winning best musical. But Jersey Boys, a very good jukebox musical by most accounts, is still just that; I think the slightly more innovative and definitely more insider-y Chaperone will best it

OK, laugh at my foolish choices, tell me how unbeliebably wrong I am ...
