Oscar nominees Annette Bening, Adam Driver, Laurie Metcalf, Bryan Cranston, and Jeff Daniels are among those who were recognized in the leading actor categories. 

The musical Hadestown led the pack with 14 nominations; Daniels’ revival of To Kill a Mockingbird came in second with nine nominations.

In other Broadway nods to Hollywood, the musical adaptation of the movie Beetlejuice nabbed eight nods.  The stage adaptation of the movie Network, starring Cranston, scored five nominations, and the live-action version of King Kong scored three. A musical based on the classic Dustin Hoffman comedy Tootsie also received several nods.

Pop music was also represented, via The Cher Show — a musical based on the life of Cher — and Ain’t Too Proud, the story of the Motown group The Temptations, both of which received a number of  nominations.

James Corden hosts the 2019 Tony Awards live on CBS on June 9; the telecast will be broadcast live from New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.
