2012 TONY* nominees announced!

All the people and shows that ought to be nominated for the 2012 Tony Awards

Made you look! Yes, I know that the actual Tony Award nominations will be announced on Tuesday. But I just couldn’t wait. So here’s our annual trick—er, tradition—the TONY nominations! Below is listed everyone who would be nominated if the Tony nominating committee consisted entirely of me, Time Out New York's theater editor. Please note: These are not my predictions of who will be nominated, but rather my opinion on who should be nominated. (For example, the Tony nominating committee ruled that Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová’s score for Once is not eligible, presumably because many of its songs were used in the original movie’s soundtrack. Well, the TONY Tony committee overrules.) Keep checking back here: After the real nominees are announced, we'll be launching our grand new Tony Awards hub page.
