Give your regards to this year’s Tony Awards nominees.

Nominations for the 2018 Tonys have been revealed, and Broadway adaptations of Tina Fey’s hit comedy Mean Girls and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical came away with a leading 12 nominations each.

The magical two-part play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child also conjured up 10 nominations, while another hit two-parter, the revival of Angels in America, received 11. Other productions that received numerous nods include The Band’s Visit and revivals of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel, My Fair Lady, and Once On This Island.

Famous faces recognized in acting categories included Andrew Garfield for his role in Angels in America, Amy Schumer for her Broadway debut in Meteor Shower, Laurie Metcalf for Three Tall Women, and Denzel Washington for his role in The Iceman Cometh.

Nominations were announced by Hamilton alum Leslie Odom Jr. and Katharine McPhee, who is currently starring on Broadway in Waitress. Last year’s Tony Awards ceremony saw Dear Evan Hansen crowned best musical, with acting honors going to Ben Platt, Laurie Metcalf, and Bette Midler, among others.

Sara Bareilles (Waitress) and Josh Groban (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812) will host this year’s ceremony, being held June 10 at 8 p.m. ET and broadcast live on CBS.
