Rock revival Hedwig and the Angry Inch scored an impressive eight Tony nominations on April 29, including a first nod for Neil Patrick Harris, who’s up for leading actor in a musical. Fellow TV veteran Bryan Cranston also earned his first nom — for leading actor in a play — for his role as LBJ in All the Way. But the big winner of the day was the cheeky musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, which slayed the competition with a whopping 10 nominations. The jazz revue After Midnight, the Carole King biomusical Beautiful, the critical darling The Glass Menagerie, and the Mark Rylance-led, all-male staging of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (EW’s pick for best production of 2013) each earned seven. It was definitely not a great morning to be a movie star, however. Snubbees this year included James Franco, Denzel Washington, Michelle Williams, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Daniel Radcliffe, Zachary Quinto, Toni Collette, Marisa Tomei, and Daniel Craig. The Tony Awards — hosted by Hugh Jackman for the fourth time — will be broadcast live on CBS June 8 at 8 p.m.
