The 74th Annual Tony Award Winners Are Announced

The Tony Award winners were announced/revealed last night and while its a show that I generally enjoy watching I wasn’t able to do so this year because the network decided to air the awards broadcast on the Paramount+ streaming service while a celebratory concert mixed with some announcements would air in tandem on the public network. Though I had a subscription to Paramount+ for a short time based on a discounted rate, I let it lapse since I have Netflix, Disney+ and HBO Max to contend with and don’t need it but I digress. I did my best to keep up with the filtering in announcements but ended up waiting for this morning to share the news with you. Let’s go.

Best Musical:
“Jagged Little Pill”
WINNER – “Moulin Rouge! The Musical”
“Tina — The Tina Turner Musical”

Best Play:
“Grand Horizons”
WINNER – “The Inheritance”
“Sea Wall/A Life”
“Slave Play”
“The Sound Inside”

The 73rd Annual Emmy Awards Winners were announced last night and I am happy to share the full rundown of the winners circle in this list below. We didn’t tune in to the program being broadcast because we were at a concert last night but we do know that the show was held in a very small space that was set up outside. It was also hosted by Cedric The Entertainer. Generally I am home to update this kind of posting as it happens but not this time around. I even forgot to program the DVR so I slacked something fierce. Now without any further adieu let’s see who won the Primetime Emmy Award…

The Press Release:
Since 1983, PHOTOPLUS has brought the photography and video communities together each fall to connect, share ideas, and experience the newest imaging technology. Our goal is always to support, inspire and celebrate this remarkable community. That said, it is with great difficulty that we announce that we have decided to cancel our in-person event at the Javits Convention Center in New York, NY, scheduled for September 30-October 2, 2021.

The cancellation of the live event is due to developments regarding the ongoing progression of the COVID-19 pandemic and related company-imposed travel restrictions affecting customers’ ability to gather in New York for PHOTOPLUS. While the decision to cancel is a disappointing one, we recognize the extreme demands that the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on establishments, and particularly small businesses, in this industry..
