Tony Awards 2020 Nominations: ‘Moulin Rouge,’ Tom Hiddleston & More

It’s finally Tony Awards season! Here are the long-awaited Tony Award nominees for the 2019-2020 season!

After the Tony Awards were upended by the Coronavirus pandemic, the Broadway community will finally receive the recognition they deserve in a virtual ceremony. While the date and platform for the show has yet to be announced, the nominees were revealed live on October 15 beginning at noon ET. Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin) hosted the announcement.

The 74th annual Tony Awards ceremony will honor a Broadway season cut short by the pandemic, as shows went dark on March 12 and will remain shuttered until at least June 2021 (and likely later). The Broadway League and American Theatre Wing determined a February 19 eligibility cut-off, 18 total productions are in the running for this year’s awards. Some productions had begun previews or opened between that date and March 12, like SIX, though nominators or voters may not have seen them in time to make determinations, so they will be eligible, hopefully, next Tonys season.

Eligible shows for this season’s Best Musical category include Moulin Rouge, The Lightning Thief, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, and Jagged Little Pill. For Best Play, Sea Wall/A Life, The Height Of The Storm, The Great Society, Slave Play, Linda Vista, The Sound Inside, The Inheritance, A Christmas Carol, My Name Is Lucy Barton and Grand Horizons are eligible for nominations. Sadly, No musical revivals opened within the eligibility window, and therefore this category will likely not be presented this year. Musical revivals scheduled for the season that did not open prior to the February 19 deadline were West Side StoryCompany, and Caroline, or Change. Finally, Best Revival Of A Play category is filled with Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Betrayal, The Rose Tattoo and A Soldier’s Play, which has never played Broadway before the 2020 production, but it would likely be considered a revival as it ran Off-Broadway in 1981.
