The Tony nominations for the 2017-18 season were announced May 1—and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical and Mean Girls led the way with 12 nods each.

Angels in America got 11 nods, edging the almost six-hour-long Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which received 10.

A few of the other productions that received nominations include Latin History for Morons, Farinelli and the King, Frozen, Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh and My Fair Lady. Some of the nominated performers/actors are Andrew Garfield ( Angels in America ), Denzel Washington ( Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh ), Condola Rashad ( Saint Joan ), Amy Schumer ( Meteor Shower ), Laurie Metcalf ( Edward Albee's Three Tall Women ), Nathan Lane ( Angels in America ), Noma Dumezweni ( Harry Potter ), Renee Fleming ( Rodgers & Hammerstein's Carousel ) and Ari'el Stachel ( The Band's Visit ).

Chita Rivera and Andrew Lloyd Webber will receive Special Tony Awards for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. John Leguizamo and Bruce Springsteen will also receive Special Tonys.

Leslie Odom Jr. and Katharine McPhee announced the nominations from the New York City Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. The 2018 Tony Awards will be broadcast live on CBS on Sunday, June 10; Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban will co-host.
