2014 Tony Nominations: Who are the Lucky Nominees?

This morning the nominations for the 68th annual Tony Awards were announced live from New York’s Paramount Hotel. Jonathan Groff (Frozen) and Lucy Liu (Elementary) were on hand to announce the nominees to the world.

Now that the nominees have been announced, expect to see plenty of debates of who got snubbed, arguments of who should take home the Tony in each category and overall campaigning in hopes of scoring Broadway’s biggest honor.

The 68th Annual Tony Awards will air Sunday, June 8 on CBS.
