Here Are All The 2016 Tony Award Nominations

Yes, "Hamilton" received the most nominations this year.

The 2016 Tony Nominations are here!

Thanks to announcers Andrew Rannells and Nikki M. James, we've finally been made privy to a list of all the plays, musicals, actors, directors, designers and composers vying for an illustrious Tony statuette this year. 

The nominees include some recognizable favorites -- essentially, anything having to do with the musical "Hamilton," Lin-Manuel Miranda's historic, hip-hop-tinged ode to the founding fathers. Also noteworthy: nods for this year's revival of "The Color Purple," recognition for Sara Bareilles' score for "Waitress," and a Best Play nomination for Danai Gurira's acclaimed, all-women "Eclipsed."

Of course, to the surprise of no one, "Hamilton" nabbed the most nods this year, receiving a respectable (and record!) 16 nominations including one for Best Musical, two for Leading Actor in a Musical, and a well-deserved nomination for Best Score. 

In terms of the Hollywood actors infiltrating the Great White Way, Jeff Daniels, Jessica Lange, Lupita Nyong’o, Michelle Williams, and Frank Langella managed to scoop up nominations, while a group of less lucky bigwigs on Broadway this year (Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Bruce Willis, Al Pacino, Keira Knightley) went unnoticed. 

The 2016 Tony Awards is set to air on CBS on Sunday, June 12, at 8 p.m. ET. James Corden, of "The Late Late Show" and "One Man, Two Guvnors" fame, will be hosting, so we can only hope Miranda will be stopping by "Carpool Karaoke" soon.
