a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

American in Paris duo“An American in Paris” inexplicably introduced by Dule Wilson(?) I guess since he was in a musical last year the name of which escapes.

But Robert Fairchild, Max Von Essen and company didn’t  disappoint.

Ruthie Ann Miles just won for Best Featured Actress in a Musical Who Only Gets to Sing ONE SONG as Lady Tiang. “Something Wonderful.” She went on so long with her thank-yous, she started getting tapped off. No, really. She looked panic-stricken, but still kept spewing out names.

Cumming said at the beginning that the four tap-dancing ushers from “On the 20th Century.” Which are the only winning thing in it. As the excerpt from “On the 19th…” I mean “20th Century” just exemplified.Yuck.

Kristen Chenoweth was just as over-the-top embarassing in this compiliation of scenes, as she is in her MC duties. And she’ll probably win Best Actress in a Musical over the legend Chita Rivera in a few minutes.

There was an over-edited montage sequence of the year’s plays. Making them all look awful. For shame, Tonys. For shame.
