Maybe I didn't express myself well because this is the second response implying that I said they should vote for charity for an underdog show that needs the support. No, not what I meant. I mean that often when they vote for the blockbuster they are voter for the LESSER QUALITY musical AND the on that will make money and tour well regardless of getting the win. They seems to vote for what is POPULAR not for what is BEST... but what is popular will be popular with or without the boost of a major award validating it as a must-see musical because of quality. That was my point.
And yes, this is subjective, I can't KNOW the this happens in any volume worth nothing. I just suspect.
