  • It's been a year on Broadway so unpredictable that the only thing for certain at the Tony Awards on Sunday is that Hugh Jackman will be the host.
    There have been no clear juggernauts — although some wonderful performances — and critics have largely bemoaned the lack of strong new good musicals and plays. In fact, the best revival categories this year easily overshadow anything new.
    That has led to uncertainty in most of the categories, and the nominating committee made no friends with choices that left many scratching their heads.
    CBS won't be too happy that the likes of Denzel Washington, Daniel Radcliffe, James Franco and Rachel Weisz didn't get nominations. To make matters worse, the telecast faces off against Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs.
    So, into the breach, The Associated Press handicaps some of this year's messy races.
