Following Hamilton, the season’s most-nominated shows included Shuffle Along with 10 nominations and the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of She Loves Me with eight. The revival of Long Day’s Journey into Night—also produced by Roundabout—received seven nominations. New plays Eclipsed and The Humans both received six nominations.

The 2015-16 season marked the first time since 1960 and the fourth time in history that five shows had been nominated for Best Musical.
