74th Annual Tony Awards Nominations Announcement

Broadway is still closed. For theater lovers, this just sucks. Today, the awards that honor the best of Broadway, announced their nominees. They are as unique, as the situation in New York City.


Broadway shut down on March 12th, and sixteen shows that were supposed to open...never did. So, this year's Tony Awards only have 18 shows (plays and musicals combined) that are even eligible. Last year that number was 34.

And the nominees are...

Best Musical

Call it a battle between Alanis Morissette and Tina Turner. Their two musicals dominated in most categories. How ironic (don't you think)!

Best Play

Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play

Some familiar faces in this category, including Audra McDonald who already has more Tonys than any other performer (6).

Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play

Marvel fans will appreciate the battle between Loki and Mysterio.

And the winner is...

How'd you like to be Aaron Tveit? He was the only one nominated in his category, so...I guess that means he won? LIke we said, it's a weird year on Broadway...

The top nominated shows are:

Jagged Little Pill - 15

Moulin Rouge! The Musical - 14

Slave Play - 12
