An American in Paris and Fun Home topped the nominations for the 69th annual Tony Awards on April 28, earning 12 nods each, including Best Musical. Announced by Broadway-bound Bruce Willis and Tony winner Mary-Louise Parker, Wolf Hall Parts One & Two garnered most nominations of any play with eight, closely followed by Skylight with seven and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time with six. Other standouts included a nomination for Sting for Best Score forThe Last Ship, which prematurely closed on the Great White Way in January, and On the Twentieth Century's Kristin Chenoweth, who will also co-host this year’s awards ceremony with Alan Cumming. Notable snubs included Finding Neverland—the Harvey Weinstein-produced new musical did not receive a single nomination. Here is the complete list of 2015 Tony Award nominees:
