Tony Awards: 'Hamilton' Dominates With 16 Nominations

The megahit musical "Hamilton" has grabbed a record-breaking 16 Tony Award nominations, the biggest haul in Broadway history and another notch in the show's march into theatrical history.

Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop-flavored biography about the first U.S. treasury secretary on Tuesday broke the 15-nominations record held by "The Producers" and "Billy Elliot." ''Hamilton" was nominated in virtually every category it could compete in, from acting to scenic design.
