72nd Annual Tony Awards List Of Winners

Michael Cera and wife Nadine

Theater director John Tiffany set a new standard for boyfriends everywhere when he led Tony Award winners, nominees and attendees Sunday in wishing his beau a happy birthday.

It was a night of love and diversity at the 72nd Annual Tony Awards. Other performances from the casts of this year's Tony-nominated shows include The Band's Visit, Carousel, Frozen, Mean Girls, My Fair Lady, Once on This Island, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical and SUMMER: The Donna Summer Musical, along with a special performance from last year's Tony Award-winning musical, Dear Evan Hansen.

Best Play: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts One and Two".

The Band's Visit won a whopping ten awards total-in fact, the only award it lost was Scenic Design. And we all belong. After 9/11 it was very, very hard for me. The not-quite Jewish co-hosts, Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles, were delightful, if aggressively wholesome.

The British-American won best actor for his role in Angels in America, which explores the Aids crisis in the United States during the 1980s.

"Let's just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked", he said.

Andrew said his character "represents the purest spirit of humanity and especially that of the LGBTQ community".

He said the spirit of the LGBT community is one that "says no to oppression".

"It is a spirit that says we were all made perfectly, and we all belong".

Lindsay Mendez of "Carousel", named best featured actress in a musical, tearfully recalled that early in her career, "I was told to change my last name from "Mendez" to 'Matthews, ' or I wouldn't work".

Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play: Nathan Lane, "Angels in America".

Bruce Springsteen also treated viewers to a bit of his impossible-to-get-tickets-to show, though Robert De Niro kind of upstaged him with that whole "F-k Trump!" moment. He added that "the Tonys have never been this political". Previously, "Tarzan" also failed to win any Tony Awards in 2006. He also declared, "I'm an immigrant, and I'm not an animal" - referring to Trump's recent remarks that some people living in a country illegally or without legal permission are "animals". Sasson Gabay, who played the role of Tewfiq in the 2007 film, will reprise his performance in the musical adaptation on Broadway.

Shalhoub choked back tears as he honored his father who entered America at Ellis Island "just a few miles from here", while Stachel addressed, with apologies to his parents, the many times he avoided family gatherings because he had been ashamed. But later, students in her drama department surprised the audience by appearing onstage to sing "Seasons of Love" from the musical "Rent".

Herzfeld spoke during the pre-show.

They got the biggest ovation of the night.
