New York: Alanis Morissette’s “Jagged Little Pill” musical receives 15 Tony Award nominations

Thursday, October 15, 2020

The nominations for the 2020 Tony Awards were revealed October 15. Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin) hosted the announcement.

The Alanis Morissette musical Jagged Little Pill led the pack with 15 nominations, earning at least one nomination in every eligible category (including six for the show's principal performers). Moulin Rouge! was not far behind, earning 14 nominations. The two and Tina: The Tina Turner Musical comprise this year's Best Musical category, effectively locking out the one other show eligible: The Lightning Thief.

The 74th annual ceremony honors a Broadway season cut short by the coronavirus pandemic, as shows went dark March 12 and will remain shuttered until at least June 2021 (and likely later).
