Damnit, We Should Have Been More Organized

Damnit, here are the results from the Broadway.com Audience Awards in which Spring Awakening got 7, but not best Song (WTF?!?).

How can Legally Blonde's "Omigod, You Guys" beat ANY of the songs from Spring Awakening? What a travesty (you know, as opposed to world hunger or the death of our planet). Granted, I had a feeling it was going to happen since 4 songs from Spring Awakening made it to the nominations and would split the vote. Damn.

So Spring Awakening did well, but sometimes I'm not sure if that's a good thing since I basically disagree with almost everything else and realise; Man, people have bad taste. Wicked? Seriously, again? Les Mis is good but over A Chorus Line or the exquisite Company? I'm sad Evil Dead The Musical didn't get it but that's more our of shameless plugging duties (as I haven't seen In the Heights yet and since it's moving to Broadway, must be half decent). Everyone else that wasn't in Spring Awakening (and even Groffs win over Raul Esparza's surprises me a little and you know I love me some Jonathan Groff), was basically a name. Vanessa Redgrave? Ethan Hawke? Fantasia Barrino? Angela Lansbury? Too easy...

I haven't seen Spring Awakening, but I really want to. I've heard great things about it. I voted in Broadway.com's Audience Awards, but mainly to vote for Altar Boyz. -toastergirl
