'Spongebob Squarepants,' 'Mean Girls,' 'Angels in America' Lead Tony Award Nominations

"Springsteen on Broadway is not eligible for any competitive Tony Awards including Best Musical Best Lead Actor or Best Director

They are ahead of Angels In America, which has 11 nominations, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, with 10.

Broadway musicals based on Mean Girls and SpongeBob SquarePants lead the nominations for the 2018 Tony Awards.

One of the most heated races is for Best Revival of a Musical, in which "My Fair Lady" and "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Carousel" are going head to head.

"I really haven't sat back and thought about the young version of me and how she would be freaking out right now", she said. Latin History for Morons, Leguizamo's solo show, was also nominated for Best Play, its sole competitive Tony nod. He said he's having a ball with Broadway audiences, which are "so vocal, it's like having an extra cast member onstage".

A hit play from the "Harry Potter" franchise joined an acclaimed revival of AIDS drama "Angels in America" to dominate Broadway's Tony award nominations on Tuesday.

Shalhoub, best known for his role on Monk, exited The Band's Visit earlier this year.




The modestly scaled production now stands a good shot of joining other recent top Tony winners like Once and Fun Home in showing that voters will often choose intimacy and emotional richness over splashy Broadway spectacle or crowd-pleasing comedy.

The play premiered in London in 2016 before coming to Broadway.

Similarly, Spongebob Squarepants also picked up nominations for Best Original Score, Best Lead Actor (Ethan Slater), Best Featured Actor (Gavin Lee), and various technical awards.

Washington will go up against Andrew Garfield for "Angels, " Tom Hollander for "Travesties, " Mark Rylance for "Farinelli and the King, " and Jamie Parker for "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts One and Two". Others in the category include Glenda Jackson from "Three Tall Women", Condola Rashad in "Saint Joan" and Lauren Ridloff in "Children of a Lesser God".

The 72nd annual Tony Awards, hosted by Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban, will take place on Sunday, June 10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
