Tony Award Nominees List 2010: Tony Nominations 2010

It was announced last Tuesday, May 4th The Tony Nominations 2010 edition.

The Tony awards which is short for Antoinette Perry Awards for Excellence in Theatre, recognizes top performances, productions and work involved with Broadway shows. The Tony Awards will be televised on CBS from Radio City Music Hall. Here's a look at some of the top 2010 Tony nominees and awards list for the 64th edition of the Tony awards. These nominees are from 2009-10, with an eligibility cut off date of April 29, 2010.

Tony Awards 2010 Ceremony, as same those in past years, it was presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing. The event will be coverage by CBS and the show will be aired live on Sunday, June 13, 2010.

Shows below are the nominees list that are really great to see the two (2) of these nominees are backed or based on popular music artists that many fans know of. The American Idiot play is fully based on Green Day's music, while Fela! has Jay-Z, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith among its list of producers. I'm also familiar with several of the actors and actresses who have been nominated. Denzel Washington is among my all-time favorites and I recently enjoyed Jude Law's film performance in "Sherlock Holmes."
