1. ''Good show'' is subjective, but Tony rules now do allow the option of nominating up to 5 for Best Musical, like they did last year.

2. Recently, the Tony telecasts have featured shows that weren't up for Best Musical. Last year, ''On Your Feet!'' (1 Tony nomination) got to perform. In 2015, they gave slots to: ''Gigi'' (1 nomination), as well as ''Finding Neverland'' and ''It Shoulda Been You'' (both 0 nominations).

3. Winning a major showbiz award probably should be competitive. And there's no place like the Tonys where your mathematical odds are so good when it comes to being nominated. This year, not unlike last year, Best Musical and Best Play will be chosen from a pool of about a dozen shows. Musical revival will come from an even smaller pool of 5, with 3 nominees that'll be chosen, possibly a 4th.

To put things in context: More than 300 feature films debut each year; only 7-10 of them are Oscar-nominated for Best Picture.

Hundreds and hundreds of TV shows air; only 7 of them will be Emmy-nominated for Best Drama or Comedy.
