Bryan Cranston, Chris O'Dowd, Neil Patrick Harris and Tony Shalhoub were among Tuesday's Tony nominees.

"A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" led in the nominations with ten, followed by "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" with eight. The latter stars Harris, who scored a nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical.

Tony voters seem to delight in denying nominations to film and television actors who visit Broadway, and this year was no exception: Among the A-listers snubbed this year were Denzel Washington, James Franco, Michelle Williams and Daniel Radcliffe.

The nominees for Best Play include "Act One," by James Lapine, "All the Way," by Robert Schenkkan, "Casa Valentina" by Harvey Fierstein, "Mothers and Sons" by Terrence McNally, and "Outside Mullingar" by John Patrick Shanley.

The Best Musical Nominees include "After Midnight," "Aladdin," "Beautiful -- the Carole King Musical," and "A Gentleman's Guide."

Cranston ("All the Way"), O'Dowd ("Of Mice and Men"), and Shalhoub ("Act One") are all competing for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play, along with Samuel Barnett ("Twelfth Night") and Mark Rylance ("Richard III.")

The nominations were announced by past Tony nominee Jonathan Groff and Lucy Liu from New York City. Emmy host Hugh Jackman made a surprise guest appearance to remind viewers that the 68th Annual Tony Awards, presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, will be broadcast on CBS June 8.
