The winners for the Outer Critics Circle are here! And Broadway Black faves Cynthia Erivo and Pascale Armand walked away with the coveted prize.

The OCC usually is a good indicator of how the Tony Awards will go (*cough* Cynthia), however, a significant number of shows such as Hamilton and Shuffle Along –weren’t eligible for the OCCs this year because they were either recognized the previous year or didn’t open in time, respectively.

Still, there are a number of awards that could predict how the Tonys will play out in June (For example, leading Actress in a Play went to Lange, and not the expected Nyong’o, also the showdown of She Loves Me vs The Color Purple in Best Revival)

Check out the winners below:
