Tony Awards Winners 2017

(Tony Awards)

Sunday’s 2017 Tony Awards celebrate the year’s best in Broadway. Gossip Cop has a full list of the winners below!

Officially, the Tonys, now in its 71st year, “honors theatre professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway.” Musicals and plays, including revivals, that opened over the course of the 2016-2017 season, but before April 27, 2017, were eligible for nominations. As Gossip Cop reported, the Tony Awards nominees were announced in May, with the musical Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 scoring the most nods with 12 nominations.

That includes Best Musical, Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for Josh Groban, Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for Denee Benton, and Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical for Lucas Steele. While Hello, Dolly! and Dear Evan Hansen also garnered a high number of nominations (10 and nine, respectively), A Doll’s House, Part 2 was the most nominated play (eight).

Notable names in contention for the coveted awards include Corey Hawkins, Kevin Kline, Cate Blanchett, Sally Field, Laura Linney, Laurie Metcalf, Christian Borle, Andy Karl, David Hyde Pierce, Ben Platt, Christine Ebersole, Patti Lupone, Bette Midler, Danny DeVito, Nathan Lane, Cynthia Nixon, Condola Rashad and Andrew Rannells. With no Hamilton to dominate this year, many of the 24 categories are up in the air.

The only guaranteed winner is James Earl Jones, who will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. Gossip Cop will be updating the winners list live as each award is announced, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern. Keep checking back!
