Broadway fans have plenty of reasons to wake up early on Tuesday: It's Tony Awards nominations day!

In the year following the massive success of Hamilton with its 16 nominations, Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 emerged as the leader with 12 nominations. The sung-through musical, which is inspired by a portion of Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace, stars Josh Groban. Other familiar names among the nominees include Cate Blanchett, Danny DeVito and Kevin Kline.

The next most nominated show is Hello, Dolly! starring Bette Middler. Also garnering buzz is Dear Evan Hansen. Its songwriting team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul recently won an Oscar for writing the lyrics to "City of Stars" in La La Land.

Broadway's biggest night, hosted by Kevin Spacey, will be Sunday, June 11, at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
