I read that the nominations will be announced at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday – last year I had difficulty with the livestreaming and missed most of the categories. Any tips on how to get it going better this year? Is there a link available for the livestreaming? Is it wise to try to get on there a bit early or would we need to wait until 8:30 sharp?
Looking forward to the nominations. I’m wondering what the composition of this year’s Tony nominations is and what their biases might be? There are always some surprises, a few, and it will be fun to see what they are – a show we don’t think will do well that does or vice-versa, or a major snub…April 27, 2015 at 5:20 pm #434659
I watch it through TonyAwards.com last year and it was fine.April 28, 2015 at 5:41 am #434660

I have perfect scores in:
Best Revival of a Musical

Poor Jake Gyllenhaal was left out again.
6 nominees for Featured Actor in a Play.
Harvey won’t be happy. Finding Neverland was shutout.April 28, 2015 at 5:56 am #434663
The announcement started late because of CBS. They were waiting for the morning news.April 28, 2015 at 5:57 am #434664
No Bryce Pinkham even though that category had 6 nominees.
I need to start a prayer circle for Kelli O’Hara. Please let it be this year!!!April 28, 2015 at 6:00 am #434665
when was the last time a play got a nod for choreography?April 28, 2015 at 6:03 am #434666
The featured actor categories both had the most surprises to me. I was not expecting An American in Paris to get that many acting nominations!
Thrilled for the acting nominations for Fun Home, and that all 3 featured ladies made it in!! I was hoping Heidi Blickenstaff would be a surprise nominee there, but oh well.
Very excited for the announcement to that Cheno and Alan Cumming will be hosting. That sounds like a fun night to me.
I had Musical, Musical Revival and Leading Actor in a Play correct with the others missing one. Curious to see if anybody got them all 🙂April 28, 2015 at 6:05 am #434667
Ken Watanabe getting a nod is a surprise. They really loved King & I.April 28, 2015 at 6:05 am #434668
finding neverland completely shut out? wow. thought it’d get some tech nods.April 28, 2015 at 6:06 am #434669
I guess that this is the reactions thread now.
On the musical side, 12 nominations for An American in Paris and Fun Home, with 10 for Something Rotten!, leaving Doctor Zhivago, Finding Neverland, Honeymoon in Vegas, It Shoulda Been You, and Side Show all completely shut out, as only 9 musicals received nominations altogether (and Gigi just managed that one for Victoria Clark).
On the play side, there was much more parity, as Wolf Hall was tops with 8 nominations, but again some major shutouts of A Delicate Balance, Fish in the Dark, and The Real Thing. Elisabeth Moss and Ruth Wilson were the only nominees from their shows. And Disgraced managed this year’s “orphan nod,” just getting Best Play.April 28, 2015 at 6:06 am #434670
Perfect scores in
Best Revival of a Musical
Leading Actress in a Musical
Leading Actor in a Play
Leading Actor in a Musical killed me, though. Was banking on Rob McClure… but wow! Honeymoon in Vegas shut out!
