I agree. Tony voters appeared to appreciate ''Aida'' more than the Tony nominators did, rewarding it in 4 out of its 5 categories.

If ''Aida'' had been up for Best Musical, it might've even beat ''Contact.'' But it's as if the nominators went out of their way to snub ''Aida'' by naming the short-lived ''Marie Christine,'' which closed in January. ... Also snubbed: ''Aida's'' book, Adam Pascal and Sherie Rene Scott. And I would've given the Tony to Scott, who was both hilarious (''My Strongest Suit'') and heartbreaking (''I Know the Truth'').

Oh, well. ''Aida'' happily found an audience and ran for 1,852 performances - far longer than that season's 4 Best Musical nominees ran, combined.
