Jane Krakowski and Taye Diggs announced the nominations on May 15, 2007.[2][3]

This Tony Awards telecast won an Emmy Award, Outstanding Special Class Program, at the 59th Creative Arts Emmy Awards presented on September 8, 2007. Glenn Weiss, the director of the awards show, received a Directors Guild of America Awards nomination, Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Musical Variety (television).[4] Spring Awakening, won 8 awards including Best Musical, the most of the night.
