Tony Awards 2017 Nominations: The updated list of nominees for the 71st awards show
Another Broadway season came to a close at the end of April, which means one thing for theater devotees: It's time for the Tony Awards.
Actors Christopher Jackson and Jane Krakowski announced the nominations for the 71st annual Broadway awards Tuesday morning. Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 was the big winner with 12 total nominations. Joining it in the best musical category: Dear Evan Hansen with nine nominations, Come From Away with seven and Groundhog Day, also with seven.
On the play side, the Ibsen riff A Doll's House Part 2 claimed eight nominations, four alone in the acting categories. It will face off against Pulitzer Prize winner Sweat (with three nominations), as well as Oslo with seven nominations and Indecent with three.
There were relatively few major snubs, although Gideon Glick's lack of nomination is glaring. Although his show, the original play Significant Other, had already closed, Glick made a full-court press on the campaign trail in the weeks leading up to the nominations. Allison Janney, star of the Six Degrees of Separation revival, has reason to scratch her head as well, particularly since her co-star Corey Hawkins did manage a nod.
Check out a list of the nominated shows and performances below. The full list is available on the Tony Awards' website. The Tonys will air on CBS Sunday, June 11 at 8 p.m. Eastern.
