Spamalot Lands 14 Tony Nominations

Hit musical MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT has wowed theatre's toughest critics to pick up a staggering 14 TONY nominations.

The medieval musical, loosely based on wacky movie MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, led the field this morning (10MAY05) when the nominations were announced in New York.

The show will fight for the Best Musical prize, while stars TIM CURRY and HANK AZARIA are up for Best Actor in A Musical.

DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS and THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA earned 11 nominations each.

Also vying for Tony Awards next month (JUN05) will be KATHLEEN TURNER, MARY-LOUISE PARKER and LAURA LINNEY, who will fight for the Best Actress prize for their roles in WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOLFF, RECKLESS and SIGHT UNSEEN respectively.

Parker's ex BILLY CRUDUP (THE PILLOWMAN) has also been named among the nominees - he'll face off with ON GOLDEN POND's JAMES EARL JONES, among others, for the Best Actor honour.

And CHRISTINA APPLEGATE's bravery and determination have earned her a Best Actress nomination for the musical SWEET CHARITY.

Applegate broke her foot during rehearsals in March (05), prompting producers to cancel the show, but the actress' determination helped to resurrect the musical.
