Jazz hands up! The 2015 Tony Award nominations have just been announced– and the list is stacked with a ton of big names! Check out who all is up for theater’s highest honors!
It’s almost time for Broadway’s biggest night! On April 28, Broadway veteran, Mary Louise Parker, and soon-to-make his Broadway debut, Bruce Willis, woke up bright and early to announce all of the nominees for the 69th annual Tony Awards. The ceremony, which will be held on June 7 at Radio City Music Hall and broadcast live on CBS, will honor the year in theater– which has included some huge names. Carey Mulligan garnered a nom for her performance in Skylight, while Bradley Cooper received a nod for his work in Elephant Man. Check out the full list of nominees!
2015 Tony Award Nominations
Along with heavy hitters Bradley and Carey, there will be several other big names vying for Tony gold in 2015. Kristin Chenoweth is nominated for her performance in On the Twentieth century in the Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical category (and she will also host the event alongside Alan Cumming!), as well as Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss for her role in The Heidi Chronicles. Helen Mirren will go up against Elisabeth, for her role in The Audience, both of whom will compete in the Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Play category.

The Tony Nomination Snubs
Of course, as with every major award show, not everyone is lucky enough to receive a nomination, and that certainly remained true of this year’s Tony nods.
Noticeably not making the list? Vanessa Hudgens, who made her Broadway debut in this year’s production of Gigi (which was snubbed as whole, as well), along with Glee star Matthew Morrison, who made his highly anticipated return to Broadway in the critically panned musical, Finding Neverland. Larry David was also snubbed both in the acting and writing categories for his new play, Fish in the Dark.
What do you think of this year’s Tony nominations? Did they get it right, or are there ridiculous snubs?
