Also, this is the What's On Stage Theatregoers' Choice award; it is LITERALLY a popularity contest. I fail to see how depriving sound designers of the chance to have thousands of randoms - many of whom only see two or three shows a year yet feel drawn to voting anyway - say "UH, YEAH, I SAW THAT SHOW SO I MAY AS WELL VOTE FOR ITS SOUND DESIGN EVEN THOUGH I DON'T REALLY CARE" counts as genuinely disgusting. And please don't think I'm exaggerating here - those of us who actually look out for and are impressed by a good sound design are VASTLY outnumbered by those who just want that actress they saw in that show to win an award and aren't really giving the majority of the awards proper consideration anyway.

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

Sound design is just as subjective as Lighting design, and both are equally an "invisible" art (i.e. no one will/should notice a good design in either discipline). Sound design is very difficult to judge across the whole theatre spectrum, unless it is split up into musicals and plays. Do the other awards do this?
There are many other disciplines that are not judged. Projection Design and Orchestration are two that spring to mind...
