nominees//71st TONY AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE



While not necessarily connected to film outside of being show business, the 71st Tony Awards celebrate the best of Broadway and have, in recent years, gained crossover notoriety for the amount of film stars who venture onto the Great White Way.

The nominees, announced this morning, showed favor towards hit musical Dear Evan Hansen. The music for the film comes from the same team behind Oscar darling La La Land.

Other notable names and projects listed among the nominees include Bette Midler, nominated for her turn in the revival of Hello, Dolly!, and Hollywood types like Sally Field, Cate Blanchett, and Kevin Kline.

While no play or musical came close to the same presence as last year's smash Hamilton, new musical Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812 came closest, nabbing 12 nominations.

The 71st Tony Awards take place June 11, 2017 at Radio City Musical Hall. Tony winner Kevin Spacey is set as the ceremony's host.
