Tony Nominations Announced: Full List of 2017 Nominees

“Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” shot ahead of the pack during the 71st Annual Tony Award nominations, which were announced live on Tuesday morning.

Christopher Jackson and Jane Krakowski had the honor of announcing the 2017 nominees. Jackson is known for appearing in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “In The Heights” and “Hamilton” — the latter earned him a Tony nomination for featured actor in a musical. He currently plays Chunk Palmer in the CBS courtroom drama “Bull.” Krakowski is known for her roles on “30 Rock” and, more recently, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” The actress won a Tony in 2003 for her role in “Nine” and has been nominated on two other occasions — in 1990 for “Grand Hotel” and for “She Loves Me” last year in 2016.

The 2017 Tony Awards will take place on June 11. Hosted by Kevin Spacey, the ceremony will be held at Radio City Music Hall in New York, and will be televised live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
