This Tony Awards season is filled with some of the greatest talent and competition we’ve seen in years. With 38 Tony-eligible shows with several favorites amongst audience members, the big question is will the Tony nominations narrow the field to disperse the nods amongst the array of contenders? The most competitive category is Original Plays, in which there are 17 contenders, including the Sean Hayes-led Good Night, Oscar and Jodie Comer-starring Prima Facie.

Many A-list stars have taken their talents to Broadway this last year and are in contention for nominations today. Josh Groban stars in the Broadway musical revival of Sweeney Todd and has his name in the hat for Actor in a Leading Role – Musical. As mentioned, Sean Hayes and Jodie Comer have each received accolades for their roles in original plays this season. Jessica Chastain leads A Doll’s House and Ben Platt is chillingly beautiful in Parade. An original Broadway show that has been praised by critics is Shucked, which features country-inspired music by acclaimed Nashville songwriters Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally. It’s a leading contender in the Original Musical category, that also includes 8 other musicals, like Some Like It Hot and & Juliet.
