When Andrew Rannells and Nikki M. James announced this year's Tony Awards nominations, Hollywood names like Steve Martin, Sara Bareilles, Danielle Brooks, Michelle Williams, Jessica Lange and Michael Shannon nabbed their first nods from the Broadway community.
This season, Hamilton leads the race with a historic 16 nominations, followed by Shuffle Along with ten and She Loves Me with eight. Long Day's Journey Into Night nabbed seven nominations, making it the most nominated play.
Honoring the best of the Broadway season, the awards will be handed out in a June 12 ceremony at 8 p.m., airing live on CBS (tape-delayed on the West Coast) from New York City's Beacon Theatre. James Corden will make his debut as the annual event's emcee.
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with a handful of the nominees. See below for Martin's politically-minded strategy, Bareilles' breakfast menu and Brooks' wise advice from her Orange Is the New Black castmate.
