The Most Wig-Snatching Snubs and Surprises of the 2018 Tony Nominations

The nominations for this year's Tony Awards are in!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play about the grown wizard and his troubled relationship with his teen-aged son, won 10 nominations, including best play and best actor for star Jamie Parker.

Mean Girls and Spongebob Squarepants saw overlap in several categories, including Best Musical, Best Book, Best Original Score, Best Featured Actor, Best Scene Design, Best Costume Design, Best Direction, Best Choreography, Best Orchestration, and Best Sound Design. Both were eligible in the Leading Actress in a Musical category, for which six of their competitors were nominated - indicating there was a tie for the final slot, and neither one of them were up for it. Both shows were nominated for best play revival.

Bill Cosby's talk of quaaludes led to conviction, says juror
Cosby reportedly paid Constand almost $3.4 million in a 2006 civil settlement. Cosby was convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

It's also worth mentioning that Mean Girls' nomination for Best Featured Actor went to Grey Henson, the actor who plays Damian, the show's visible gay character.

Also up for Best Musical is The Band's Visit and Frozen.

"The Band's Visit", "Carousel" and "Angels in America" closely follow with 11 nods each. Also nominated are Harry Hadden-Paton of My Fair Lady, Joshua Henry of Carousel, and Tony Shalhoub of The Band's Visit. Those musicals are up for 11 nominations each.
