    It's Tony time!

    On Tuesday, the nominees for the 2013 Tony Awards were announced. Cyndi Lauper's musical Kinky Boots earned the most noms (13!) followed by Matilda with 12. Tom Hanks and Tom Sturridge are also both up for a Tony for their respective roles in Lucky Guy and Orphans.

    "Lucky Guy is an apt title—for George C. Wolfe and Courtney B. Vance and all of us who meet up eight times a week," Hanks said in response to his nomination. "It is a privilege to be in [Nora Ephron's] play and an honor to be included with the other nominees and I would go nuts celebrating, but I have a show tonight."

    The awards will take place June 9 in New York City. Below is the complete list of nominees.
