Showing just a 3 per cent rise across the board, the Broadway box office could be seen as sluggish in the wake of the Tony nominations announced two weeks back. But the vaunted Tony bump may take a few weeks more to fully register for producers, especially after the big outlays on the showcase Tonys issue of The New York Times' Arts & Leisure section, where the spend for a full-page or double truck ad can exceed $200K, especially when you factor in the cost of making up...

He mentioned Matt Damon and Michael B. Jordan in particular, just two of hundreds of celebrities attending what often feels like a combination of the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys and Tonys, plus the worlds of fashion and sports. The stars were packed so tightly together, in fact, that the major hazard of the evening seemed to be potential hem damage, from famous feet stepping inadvertently on long, delicate trains. Halle Berry, wearing a black-and-gold Atelier Versace jumpsuit, was one of those who had to stop and release her train from a stranger's foot as she glided across the Carroll and Milton Petrie European Sculpture Court during cocktail hour. The evening began with invited guests making their way past the assembled media and up the red-carpeted stairs, then into the huge entry hall of the museum, where a massive tower of hot pink and white roses, in the form of a flower, awaited them.

The race was mainly thought to be a two-way competition between Evan Hansen , about an anxious teen and a lie that spirals out of control, and Come From Away , which is based on a true story about a small town in Canada in the days following 9/11. But Natasha, Pierre ... scoring 12 nominations (!) total this morning could be considered the rising dark horse. Read more... More about Tonys and Entertainment

Let's face it, prequels always suck. So we weren't too interested in the Big Bang Theory spinoff Sheldon .

The rising star will reportedly take over the role from Jim Parsons , who won FOUR Emmys playing the neurotic math genius. Related: Big Bang Cast Reportedly Offers To Take A Pay Cut For Mayim Bialik & Melissa Rauch! We're also seeing that the network is looking at Zoe Perry to play Sheldon's mom!

The elusive, prestigious EGOT ascribed to any person who has won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tonyhas only been achieved by 12 people (not counting recipients of honorary awards, or Tracy Morgan on 30 Rock ). At Sunday night's Oscars , Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda could become the thirteenth and youngest , at age 37, EGOT recipient. Nominated for Best Original Song for How Far I'll Go from Disney's Moana , Miranda has previously won one Emmy, two Grammys and three Tonys. If he wins, Miranda will join the esteemed company of artists like composer Richard Rogers (the first person to complete an EGOT, in 1962), Rita Moreno, Mel Brooks and Whoopi Goldberg. Below are some of the other artists who, like Miranda, are just one award away from EGOT-ing.

" Pasek and Paul are also currently represented on Broadway by the hottest ticket of the season so far, the heartrending Dear Evan Hansen . Also from La La Land , Emma Stone garnered a nomination for Best Actress. Stone made her Broadway debut in the 2014 revival (of the 1998 revival) of Cabaret , receiving very strong notices in the process. For theater fans, one of the biggest stories to emerge from this year's Oscar nods is the fact that wonder boy Lin-Manuel Miranda has a chance to earn that most coveted of distinctions, the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). Miranda has won numerous Tonys, most notably for the smash hit Hamilton . He also won Grammys for the cast recordings of both Hamilton and In the Heights . He even snagged an Emmy writing music and lyrics for the 67th Annual Tony Awards. All that leaves is the Oscar, and Miranda seems a very strong contender indeed for his song "How Far I'll Go," from the Disney hit, Moana .
