"It’s not moulin rouges fault for opening this season that was cut short. Just like any season when you don’t know your competition until cutoff date. If this had hit in September and there were only a few contenders, then it would be a different story."

That's one valid way of looking at it. But, as someone here pointed out, a total of 16 shows that would have been potential nominees have been or will be unable to open this spring, and that's quite a huge percentage of the total number of potential nominees.

I've just posted above as to why I think the best course of action would be to reschedule the Tonys for January 2021 at the earliest, or June 2021 at the (ideal) latest. But aside from my perspective on it, I really do think that, logistically, it will likely be impossible to reschedule them for earlier than either of the dates I've just listed. And whenever the awards are rescheduled, I can only imagine they would consider all shows that have opened before the new cutoff date, not only the ones that opened in the fall of the 2019-2020 season. So, in that sense, I think maybe this discussion is moot.
