Tony Award nominations 2018: The complete list, led by 'Mean Girls' and 'SpongeBob'

"Mean Girls" and "SpongeBob SquarePants" may have led Tony nominations with 12 apiece on Tuesday, but the real front-runners to emerge for Broadway's biggest honors were the musical "The Band's Visit," the two-part play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" and the revival of "Angels in America."

"The Band's Visit" and "Angels" scored 11 nominations, and "Harry Potter" — already something of a front-runner — scored 10. Other leading contenders were the revivals of "Carousel" with 11 nominations and "My Fair Lady" with 10.
