It's telling how much of a disparity there was between ''A Strange Loop's'' number of nominations (a leading 11) and its actual wins (2).

You have to go back over 4 decades to find a Best Musical winner that's scored only 2 Tony wins: ''42nd Street'' in 1981.

GoldDerby experts predicted ''A Strange Loop'' to win 5 Tonys. And when it won Best Book, the Radio City audience went wild.

But the Tony voters didn't seem to really embrace it. If they LOVE a musical, they show it; they tend NOT to ''spread the wealth.''

* 2021: ''Moulin Rouge!'' won 10 out of 14 Tony nominations
* 2019: ''Hadestown'' won 8 out of 14 Tony nominations
* 2018: ''The Band's Visit'' won 10 out of 11 Tony nominations
* 2017: ''Dear Evan Hansen'' won 6 out of 9 Tony nominations
* 2016: ''Hamilton'' won 11 out of 16 Tony nominations
