The Tony Award nominee list is out! And it looks like this just might be Cyndi Lauper’s year! Her musical collaboration with Harvey Fierstein, resulting in the new Broadway hit Kinky Boots, is garnering quite the attention with 13 Tony nominations!

What’s more? Tweens are dominating the musical theater awards with 12 nods for Matilda, 10 for Pippin and 9 for Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella!

But we’re have to admit we’re a little stumped by the play nominees! While Tom Hanks has got himself a Best Actor in a Play nomination, that list is looking a little empty. Where’s Al Pacino?! As for the ladies, no Bette Midler?!

Ch-ch-check out the full nomination list…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Bette Midler & Barry Manilow's Blood Feud RUINING The Tony Awards!?

What?! Noooooo!

Producers behind the 2013 Tony Awards are considering asking the beautifully brilliant Bette Midler to co-host the show with the ah-mazingly iconic Barry Manilow, but there is a huge hitch!

And we don't mean the match-maker played by Will Smith!

The two legendary entertainers apparently HATE each other!

See, Barry started out as Bette's piano man, but the Mandy singer quickly escaped his humble beginnings and — with 80 million album sales beneath his belt — eventually outsold his former boss!

Bette didn't waste away by the wayside, but she apparently holds a grudge!

The Wind Beneath My Wings songstress wouldn't even attend his Manilow on Broadway opening!

Aww! We love Bette & Barry more than we love oxygen and chocolate milk, but the Tonys are bigger than these two stage legends!

We will not have them sullied!

Get it together, you two! The world is counting on you!

The show must go on!

And no Lindsay Lohan, J-Law wasn't making fun of the beloved actress!

LOLz!

During last night's eventful Golden Globes ceremony, Hunger Games' winning tribute from District 12 AKA Jennifer Lawrence won the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for her role in Silver Linings Playbook

And girl caused confusion during her acceptance speech when she said :

"I beat Meryl [Streep]"

Say whaaaat?!

OH wait!

She wasn't shoving her GG win in Meryl Streep's face, as obviously Meryl wasn't even there to feel burned…

She's securing her place in our hearts as an adorable human being by quoting a line from the AWEsome revenge comedy, The First Wives Club,
