The 2013 Tony Award Nominations Have Been Announced…

This is pretty much how we felt when we heard that "Matilda: The Musical" had earned 12 noms. (cast of "Matilda" photographed by Joan Marcus)

…and some of our favorite dance-y musicals racked up quite a few! (Not that we’re all that surprised.)

Leading the pack are the Cyndi Lauper’s cheeky Kinky Boots, the witty, wonderful Matilda: The Musical and the spectacular circus-y revival of Pippin, with 13, 12 and 10 nominations respectively.

Are we a little bit sad that Matilda‘s noms don’t include any for the four extraordinary little girls who play the title character? Totally. But thankfully they’ll receive their own special Tony Award. And the Best Actress in a Musical category is already stacked with talented dancers, including Pippin‘s Patina Miller and Motown: The Musical‘s Valisia LeKae.

Other highlights include nine nominations for Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, four for Motown: The Musical and two for the dearly departed Bring It On: The Musical. Click here for the full list.

[Sidenote: What could make Tony Award nomination day feel even more like Christmas morning? Broadway-babe-turned-TV-star Sutton Foster and best “So You Think You Can Dance” judge ever Jesse Tyler Ferguson making the announcements, that’s what! Adorable.]
