The nominations for the 69th annual Tony Awards were announced on Tuesday by Mary-Louise Parker and Bruce Willis, recognizing the best of the 2014–15 Broadway season. “Fun Home” and “Something Rotten!” dominated the musical categories, while “Hand to God,” “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” and the revival of “You Can’t Take It With You” were among the most recognized plays.

Notable acting nominees include Elisabeth Moss (“The Heidi Chronicles”), Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy, and Matthew Beard (“Skylight”), Micah Stock (“It’s Only a Play”), Ben Miles (“Wolf Hall”) and Bradley Cooper and Alessandro Nivola (“The Elephant Man”) in the play categories, as well as musical theater stars Tony Yazbek (“On the Town”), Michael Cerveris and Beth Malone (“Fun Home”), Ken Watanabe and Kelli O’Hara (“The King and I”) and Kristin Chenoweth and Andy Karl (“On the Twentieth Century”).

The winners will be crowned June 7 at Radio City Music Hall with a live broadcast via CBS, with Tony winners Chenoweth and Alan Cumming hosting. This year John Cameron Mitchell will receive a special Tony Award, Tommy Tune will be given a lifetime achievement award, and Stephen Schwartz will accept the Isabelle Stevenson Award. The Cleveland Play House is this year’s regional theater Tony winner, and a new award for Excellence in Theatre Education will be presented to a yet-to-be-revealed teacher.
