Good Morning, All. Man did that 5 AM alarm ever come too early!

TalksTooMuch said...

Good morning, Charlie and I couldn't agree more!

sandybrook said...

hahh it was a nice little get together in any case almost like a real party.
Broadway really needs to do something about getting their performers more well-known. Maybe I know 10% of all these nominees. Congrats to winners and nominees!

Frufra said...

Hi, friends!

Maybe NPH will EGOT, eh?

sandybrook said...

Oscar for him will be hard.

BeckyMae said...

Hi all! Hey TTM did you see our PM is being all classy and shit in your country?? Seriously, we need to lock him up....

AJ said...

Darn it.
Totally forgot the Tonys were on. My mom and I always watched them when she was alive. We always loved going into NYC to see a good show. We'd do what we called triple-headers ... A matinee broadway show, movie at Radio City and than evening theater show with Sardi's sandwiched in between somewhere.

Frufra said...

@sandybrook - I know; he's got to do better than the Smurf movies.

TalksTooMuch said...

I didn't, what happened, Becky??

Fru, we missed you at Book Club last night!

Sandy, it was kinda like a party, a cocktail party, lol

Renoblondee said...

I was busy watching Cosmos.

BeckyMae said...

Whilst giving a speech in Ottowa he called your country "Canadia"....which I do all the time, but I'm not the leader of a nation....

BeckyMae said...

He was also accused of falling asleep during D-Day ceremonies in France.....seriously....we need to bin this guy!

Ray Nicolet said...

Too long, didn't watch. Congrats NPH.

Dingle Barry said...

NPH is so talented though. After his Broadway run I hope Hollywood gives him some great movie roles. I love him in anything. He's like a Hollywood actor from an earlier era, so diverse in his range and naturally convincing when he spins his tale on screen or stage.

That kid is going places, by golly.

Its just U said...

Afternoon folks. We don't really hear much about the Tony's over here, but they look like a fun show.

TalksTooMuch said...

Bwhaha, Becky, that's kinda funny!

Frufra said...

Hi, TTM - I totally forgot it was happening :-( ! I got sucked into a vortex on TeachersPayTeachers, printing free stuff and cooking up crazy ideas for next school year - my 15 year old, who was sitting by the printer, thought I was out of my mind. I think he was insulted that I was thinking about school stuff during summer break :-).

Frufra said...

I'm with you, Dingle. I think he's got the right stuff to do whatever he wants, and do it really well. I know my 15 year old drama kid is pretty obsessed with Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog.

BeckyMae said...

Yeah it totally is except he's such a tool he make Dubya look like a Mensa member...

Dingle Barry said...

Frufra, and Hollywood is filled with no-talent poseurs. True talent needs to be explored to it's fullest by the industry so we, the audience (and future artists), can experience and be in awe of these gifts that G-d has bestowed on a thespian.

The jackasses will try and pigeon hole him like RDJ.

auntliddy said...

Nothing else to watch, so i looked at show til GOT. Wonderful! Taped the rest ! Got awesome; i LOVED the scythe!!! Whoever engineere that shld get a medal.

Snootches said...

Hey @Frufra, I thought us teachers have cooshy jobs with the summers off? Are you saying you were doing work during your time off?! ;) we teachers never stop working

Snootches said...

Did NDT finally get naked?!

Frufra said...

@Snootches - right? Teachers only work from 8:30 to 3:30, and get three months off - easy peasy! People who are critical of teachers need to sub for a week or two; that would set them straight!!

Congrats to Cranston! Well done and well deserved!!

TalksTooMuch said...

Off to the Zoo with the biggest little for a field trip, have a great day, y'all!

Renoblondee said...

School's not out yet TTM? Have fun!

Seven of Eleven said...

Yay for NPH and Mr White!

I'm glad Franco wasn't even nominated but O'Dowd was. Suck it, polymath!

fancyscreenname said...

Haven't seen a Broadway play since Michael Damien in that Technicolor dreamcoat play. I actually enjoyed the Tonys last night. Glad Doogie won. It was a rip roaring good time.

Krystie Rachelle said...

NDT naked during cosmos would be the best thing of my life.

Snootches said...

TTM, I thought this was the zoo! Lol Have fun mini TTM!

Snootches said...

Right?!

califblondy said...

Hugh Jackman was awesome. The hopping opening was great. You have to be in really good physical condition to pull that off.

TalksTooMuch said...

Thanks, Snootches! It was fun! But rained all day. BOO

TalksTooMuch said...

Thanks, Reno, no, not until the 23rd. It was fun but rained.all.day so twas a soggy cold day.

Malibu Borebee said...

NPH will never be a leading man in movies but if he gets the right supporting part he could get an Oscar and EGOT.

I was surprised that Gentlemen's Guide won so much, it's not great.

Hugh Jackman is always charming and ridiculously talented. He should EGOT.
