2016 Tony Awards Nominations Live Stream (WATCH)

“The Book of Mormon” alums Nikki M. James and Andrew Rannells will announce the nominees for the 70th annual Tony Awards on Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. ET live from the Diamond Horseshoe at the Paramount Hotel in New York City.

William Ivey Long, chairman of the American Theatre Wing; Heather Hitchens, president of the American Theatre Wing; Robert E. Wankel, chairman of The Broadway League; and Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League, will also be present during the announcement.

James and Rannells — a Tony winner and a Tony nominee, respectively — will reveal the noms in each of the 24 competitive categories. “Shuffle Along” was recently deemed a new musical, putting the show in direct competition with “Hamilton,” which is expected to dominate the race. But can “Hamilton” match the record 15 nominations earned by “The Producers” in 2001 and “Billy Elliot” in 2009?

Emceed by Tony Award winner and “The Late Late Show” host James Corden, the Tonys will air June 12 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS — live from the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

The Tony Awards will stream live across multiple platforms on the CBS All Access subscription service. The Tonys has been broadcast on CBS since 1978.
