Zeta-Jones was nominated for best performance by a leading actress in a musical for A Little Night Music. (She won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2003 for her role in Chicago, which was adapted to the big screen from Broadway.)

"What a thrill to be nominated!" she said. "The experience of doing this incredible show and working every night with such a talented group of people has truly been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. And now to be nominated for a Tony. In my dreams, I couldn't imagine a better way to make my Broadway debut."

Green Day's American Idiot earned a best musical nomination. It will compete against Memphis, Million Dollar Quartet and Fela! at the June 13 show, broadcast on CBS from Radio City Music Hall. Read the complete nominee list here.
