The nominees turned up early in the morning for a "meet and great’ with the press making themselves available for interviews and photographs. Probably the largest ovation of the day went to Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth, who will co-host the Tony Awards live on CBS June 7th with Tony Award winner Alan Cumming. Chenoweth, a darling with the press, is nominated for Best Actress in a musical for playing the glamorous film star, Lily Garland, in the Roundabout Theatre’s revival of "On the Twentieth Century," which is also nominated for Best Revival of a Musical.

The nominators were tough this season with a third of the season’s new productions failing to receive a single nomination, while two musicals, "Fun Home" and "An American In Paris," scored 12 nominations each, the most of any other show.

The Tony Awards will be televised LIVE on CBS Sunday June 7th from Radio City Music Hall. The evening hosted by Tony Award winners Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming will feature live performances from the nominated musicals and many others surprises.

Tune in Sunday June 7th to see the best of Broadway live on CBS.
