Once, the stage musical based on the film starring musicians Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, leads the nominations at the 66th annual Tony Awards with 11 nods including best musical, director, actor, actress and choreographer, the New York Times reports. Other top nominees are Peter and the Starcatcher and The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess, both with nine nominations.

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the troubled yet high-grossing musical with songs by U2's Bono and the Edge, was mostly snubbed. The show, which has the distinction of being the most expensive Broadway production in history, received only two minor nominations.

"I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
