AWARDS SEASON 2018: Tony Award Nominees

The big award-nominations are all in, with Mean Girls and SpongeBob SquarePants at the head of the pack with 12 Tony Award nominations apiece, and Carousel and The Band’s Visit close on their heels with 11 nods. It’s the smallest number of productions in decades eligible for this year’s awards and there are only 8 total musicals vying for Tonys among this year’s nominees, meaning each of this year’s shows has the chance to bring home a good many awards each. Who are you rooting for? Did any of your favorites get snubbed?

Join the conversation, bookmark our awards page, subscribe to the blog, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter as we’ll updating the winners for the Tonys (and all of the other awards, too) as soon as they’re handed out.

The Tony Awards will be broadcast live on CBS at 8/7c on Sunday, June 10. Join us as we post live!
