Winner-take-all may be a term more commonly associated with primary elections. But if the Tony Award nominations announced Tuesday in New York are any indication, that phrase could very well apply on the night of the awards ceremony in June, to the musical that has dominated this Broadway season like no other show in history.

To no one's surprise, "Hamilton," with advance sales heading toward $100 million and rows of accolades already lining its creators' shelves, was the favorite of the Tony nominators, scooping up 16 nods, including those for best musical, best score, best book and best direction. An astonishing seven cast members — including the show's creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda — made the Tony cut as well.

The musical beat the previous record for most nominations, 15, set by "The Producers" in 2001 and "Billy Elliot the Musical" in 2009. The fact that no one is particularly surprised about that, either, suggests how massive "Hamilton's" presence has grown on Broadway in the months since it opened at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Aug.15, 2015.

Although "Waitress," "Bright Star," "School of Rock" and "Shuffle Along, or the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and all that Followed" were also named in the best-musical category, don't expect to hear those titles uttered too often when the envelopes are opened on Tony night. The 70th annual ceremony is scheduled to take place Sunday, June 12, at 8 p.m. on CBS.

The mega-success of "Hamilton," with music, book and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda — who personally racked up three nominations, including one for best actor in a musical — has tended to muffle the fact that this has been a strong season for non-musicals, both new and in revival. The nominees in both best-play categories reflect this. The race for best new play, which includes Stephen Karam's "The Humans," Danai Gurira's "Eclipsed," "King Charles III" and "The Father," should be a lively one (although "The Humans" would be my early favorite).

And the five nominees for best revival of a play set up an equally intriguing contest: They are Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" and "A View From the Bridge, " both directed by Ivo van Hove; David Harrower's "Blackbird"; Michael Frayn's "Noises Off"; and Eugene O'Neill's "Long Day's Journey Into Night," starring Jessica Lange.

In the acting categories, the handicapping would make the "Hamilton" entries early favorites, with Leslie Odom Jr., Renée Elise Goldsberry, Phillipa Soo and Daveed Diggs all early favorites to sweep the musical actor contests. Miranda himself might sneak past Odom as best actor.

Other interesting acting nominations: Lange as best actress in a play, for "Long Day's Journey Into Night," along with Lupita Nyong'o, for "Eclipsed." The toughest race may be for best actress in a musical, in which the nominees are Laura Benanti for "She Loves Me," Carmen Cusack for "Bright Star," Cynthia Erivo for "The Color Purple," Jessie Mueller for "Waitress" and Phillipa Soo for "Hamilton."

Maybe the biggiest surprise: no nomination for Audra McDonald in "Shuffle Along." Then again, she has six Tonys already.
