Each season, Tony Awards nominations are announced. And each year, we debate a little about who really earned it, a little about who got lucky, and a whole lot was missed. "If I were on the nominating committee..." we begin. And that's how the JKTS Awards were born on this blog. It is hard to believe that year this marks the 3rd Annual JKTS Awards. Time sure flies. Even now, I am contemplating the first new musical of the season, First Date. And... well, that is for another time. First things first.
As always, I seek ways to gather your input and ideas - after all, I don't just do this blog for me! Today, I'd like your help selecting this year's JKTS Awards categories. I've narrowed it down to three broad categories: The Victor/Victorias, The Tonys Should Honor Awards, and The Just-for-Fun Awards.
- The Victor/Victorias are those that honor all of those shows, creatives and performers that we felt SHOULD have been nominated, but were overlooked by "the committee."
- The Tonys Should Honor Awards are those categories that the Tony Awards don't recognize, but really should.
- The Just-for-Fun Awards are just that - fun, silly categories that celebrate the quirky trends of the season and other theatrical mayhem!
Please add your ideas for any categories you can think of - the more the merrier!
NOMINATIONS WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY, MAY 27 AND FINAL VOTING WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY, JUNE 3! THE WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON TONY SUNDAY!
