Radcliffe200.jpgNEW YORK, New York (X17online) - This year's Tony Award nominations are out, and Daniel Radcliffe, Robin Williams, James Earl Jones and Ben Stiller are absent from them.

Musical The Book of Mormon swept the nominations with 14.

Actors including Al Pacino, Vannessa Redgrave, Edie Falco and Frances McDormand all scored nominations, while Daniel Radcliffe, Ben Stiller and Robin Williams did not.

Radcliffe won rave reviews for his performance in the revival of the Tony-winning play How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. The production itself was nominated eight times this year.

The Book of Mormon, written by the creators of South Park, won at the box office despite its lack of big-name actors in the cast.

Williams, had he won a Tony, would have been the eleventh actor ever to win a Grammy, Tony, Emmy and Oscar. Alas, he was not nominated.

Stiller was starring in The House of Blue Leaves. In 1987, he appeared in the show as the son, with this revival he plays the father.

James Earl Jones was starring in Driving Miss Daisy. He was not nominated, but co-star Vannessa Redgrave was.

The Tony Awards air live on June 12.
