Jackman to Host Tony Awards


Hugh Jackman is back as host for the third year in a row, and the Broadway season's biggest musical hit, "Monty Python's Spamalot," is being challenged by three very different musicals.

Welcome to Sunday's 2005 Tony Awards (8 p.m.-11 p.m. EDT on CBS), where the production that could walk off with the most silver medallions is a play John Patrick Shanley's "Doubt," which has picked up just about every other theater award given this spring, as well as a Pulitzer Prize. It's a shoo-in for best play Tony and probably several more honors, too.

Its competition for best play includes "The Pillowman" by Martin McDonagh, "Gem of the Ocean" by August Wilson and Michael Frayn's "Democracy."

Yet most of the attention will be focused on the musical categories where "Spamalot," a Mike Nichols-directed extravaganza based on "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," received 14 nominations. And the prime entertainment of every Tony telecast is a scene from each of the shows nominated for best musical and best musical revival.

--You have no idea how pumped I get for the Tony Awards. Seriously folks, watch them. If you aren't that interested in theater or musicals, watch anyway--you get the absolute best of every show--without having to sit through them. It's a star-studden affair--you won't be disappointed.

You Said

I always tell people that the Tonys are the best award show on TV, and I'm not even gay!

Hugh did a great job hosting last year. I'll be watching, even though he won't be wearing those gold leather trousers this year. (And that's a crying shame)
