Tony Awards Nominations 2020: The Complete List

After the coronavirus pandemic shut down Broadway and forced the 74th annual Tony Awards to be postponed, the nominees for the shortened 2019-2020 theater season were finally revealed during an announcement hosted by award-winning actor James Monroe Iglehart. 

While the eligibility for any given year is typically near the end of April, it was previously announced that only 18 shows — both musicals and plays — that opened before Feb. 19 would be considered for the 2020 ceremony. That said, Jagged Little Pill was the most recognized show overall with 15 nominations. 

On the musical side, Moulin Rouge! The Musical and Tina: The Tina Turner Musical followed closely behind with 14 and 12, respectively. Slave Play earned the most nominations for any play with 12 and was followed by The Inheritance with 11.

Meanwhile, Audra McDonald, Laura Linney, Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Hiddleston all picked up acting nominations. 

As for the ceremony itself, no formal details about the date or its presentation have been revealed. Actor Michael Urie, who appeared in the Tony-nominated play Grand Horizons, told ET that he hopes the ceremony at least streams online if CBS will not air it as originally planned in June.
