Tony Award nominations 2020: The complete list

Published

on

Broadway may be closed, but the 2020 Tony Awards will go on.

“What, you didn’t think we were gonna have the Tony Awards?” said the event’s host, James Monroe Iglehart. “Of course we’re going to have the Tony Awards. It’s just going to be a little different.

“Theater will always survive.”

Nominations for the award show that celebrates the best of New York theater were announced Thursday and had a different vibe than usual. None of the nominated plays or musicals have performed in seven months, since Broadway shut down in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. The earliest possible date they will resume is June 1, 2021 — by a long-shot the lengthiest hiatus in Broadway history.

Still, the Tonys will go ahead, honoring a truncated season as many of the planned spring shows — “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Six” and “Plaza Suite,” among them — have not opened yet, and some — “West Side Story,” “Girl From The North Country” — opened too late.

At least one nominee can start writing his winner’s speech: Aaron Tveit, the star of “Moulin Rouge,” is the only person in the best actor category.

The 74th Annual Tony Awards will air on a to-be-announced date on CBS.

By

Radhika Apte needs no introduction to Kollywood fans after her appearance as Superstar Rajinikanth’s wife in ‘Kabali’ directed by Pa Ranjith.  The intense actress impressed with her performance of a meek girl to a mother of a grown-up and especially her reunion scene with Rajini took the audience on an emotional ride.

Radhika is happily married to her British boyfriend Benedict Taylor who is a singer and she shuttles between Mumbai and London to balance her personal and professional life.

Radhika Apte in her most recent interaction with Vikranth Massey on social media from London has admitted that she does not believe in the institution of marriage.  When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.

Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
