I just finished watching the 65th annual Tony Awards, and it was a great show. Host Neil Patrick Harris was hilarious and entertaining as always, even taking one 30 second interval to make as many jokes about "Spider-Man" as he could. All of the musical numbers were amazing, and Nikki M. James' acceptance speech almost made me cry; she was so excited! Also, you need to watch Mark Rylance's acceptance speech. It's...indescribable.

But the most important thing is, now we can figure out who won the Tony predictions war, me or Colin! Here are the results:
