What's fascinating to me is that Jake Gyllenhaal is a 3-time Tony nominee this year: Once, for Best Actor in a Drama for ''Sea Wall/A Life,'' and then for Best Play twice, because his company, Nine Stories, is among the producers for ''Slave Play'' and ''Sea Wall/A Life.'' (How many other actor-producers have scored 3 Tony nominations in the same season?) His best bet to win looks like Best Play for ''Slave Play.''

But he should've gotten his first Tony nomination a few years earlier: for that radiant revival of ''Sunday in the Park With George'' (2017). Alas, the show didn't invite the Tony voters, so it wasn't eligible. I still hope Gyllenhaal can revive ''Sunday'' someday, and it can be filmed.

As for Best Score, I imagine ''A Christmas Carol'' will win because Tony voters will assume a ''Carol'' has more music in it.

(To me, ''The Lightning Thief'' got a bum deal. Rob Rokicki's score and actors Chris McCarrell and Ryan Knowles each deserved a Tony nomination.)
