“And The Winner Is” – Complete 2017 Tony Award Winners

tony awards logo

Hello there my friends and those who might have just discovered “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” Lifestyle Blog. Today I’m going to be using my voice to share the winners of the 2017 Tony Awards which aired last night on CBS. The program honors the Broadway Stage and is probably my very favorite of the awards programs that airs. This might surprise you since I am more of a movie goer than a Broadway play attendee but with the movies that I enjoy the most never really getting their due, I have come to find The Tony’s quite fun. I’ve culled the full winners from the Internet and I figure if I am to use “The Chronicles” a lot more professionally that I should get on some mailing lists and have this stuff sent to me direct, but I digress; here are the winners of the 71st Annual Tony Awards (which were hosted by Kevin Spacey) May I have the envelope please…….

Best Play:
“Oslo” (WINNER)
“A Doll’s House, Part 2”
“Indecent”
“Sweat”

Here’s The Winners Of The 2017 Billboard Music Awards

Considering that I run a Heavy Metal and Hard Rock music review and photography site like PiercingMetal.com, there aren’t a whole lot of times that I find myself perusing the pages of Billboard Magazine. Sure I know they are the keepers of all the chart information but so much of what I am lending my time to is seldom lined out in there. It’s a cruel truth when we follow music that is not supported here as much as it is in other countries. That being said; I still like to use “The Chronicles” as a means to line out those artists who have won since the readers of this site are usually listening to other stuff than I am. Here we go, and I’d get a coffee for this one since it’s a long list. I’ve culled this from the other entertainment sites and left the nominees in for good measure.

Top Artist:
Adele
Beyonce
Justin Bieber
The Chainsmokers
Drake — WINNER
Ariana Grande
Shawn Mendes
Rihanna
Twenty One Pilots
The Weeknd

Top New Artist:
Alessia Cara

I felt this would be some good content for the larger media side of the creative fence. Last night the Grammy Awards were given out for so many genres of popular music it will make your head spin. They have some “Rock” and “Metal” categories which I speak a little about over on PiercingMetal, but that is generally done to fire up our readers should something important be overlooked.
