So, the Drama Desk Awards were last night (read the the list of winners here). Can someone please tell me how the above makes sense if Once didn’t also win Best Music? Usually the show with the best orchestrations, lyrics, and who is awarded with Outstanding Musical usually also has the Best Music.

Anyone else confused?

Let’s hope the above is an indication as to who will win the Tonys this Sunday. Once wasn’t eligible for be nominated for Best Score for this committee, but their orchestrations and book sure were.  I suppose I need to watch the movie again because I don’t remember most of the music that was in the show being in the movie as well. The movie put me to sleep, so I could’ve been unconscious for the duration of most of it.

It’s between Once and Newsies for Best Musical at the Tonys, so I’m crossing my fingers that Once wins this award as well.
