The Broadway musical, Something Rotten!, could be stinking up place at this year's Tony Awards as the show has been nominated for 10 awards, however it could over out-shined by Fun Home which has the most nominations of 12, but that almost doesn't count since three actresses are nominated for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical” and only one can win.

Each year, there is usually one show title that is so long that hearing its name announced over and over again becomes annoying. This year it will probably be a tie between The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (six nominations) and Wolf Hall Parts One & Two (eight nominations). Why they can't just shorten it to Wolf Hall is beyond me.

The 2015 Tony Awards will be presented live on June 7 at 8:00 p. m. on CBS. This year's hosts will be Kristen Chenoweth (who herself is nominated for On the Twentieth Century) and Alan Cumming. Presenters and musical performances of the awards show have not been decided at this time. In addition to the usual hoopla, a special lifetime achievement award will be given this year to Tommy Tune.

And the Nominees are:
