How to Watch the 2018 Tony Awards Red Carpet Livestream

Andrew Garfield attends the 72nd Annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall

Andrew Garfield attends the 72nd Annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall

"Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" won the Tony for best play while The Band's Visit took home 10 awards, including best musical.

The NY Times said De Niro's remarks, which occurred just after 10:35 p.m., "broke through what felt like an orchestrated attempt to avoid controversy, using Mr. Trump's name three times in a short, obscene salvo that brought the Radio City Music Hall audience roaring to its feet".

As is to be expected in a room filled with multitalented actors, singers and other artists, the crowd obliged.

Jewish shows fared well at the Tony Awards last night, with The Band's Visit reigning supreme amongst musicals and the revival of Angels in America holding its own amongst new and revived plays alike.

With this year's Washington Capitals triumphing Stanley Cup decided on June 8 and the GSW winning 2018 NBA Finals over on June 9, the Tony Awards were literally the biggest game in town last night - yet gained virtually no traction.

Written for the Theater: "The Band's Visit". After 9/11 it was very, very hard for me.

Canada parliament condemns USA attack on Trudeau, country simmers
Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday on ABC's "This Week", "I'm not so sure John's right about where America is on trade". And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace, Trudeau stuck our president in the back.

"Angels in America" is "for anyone who has felt like they don't belong, who have felt ostracized by their culture, who have been told or indoctrinated by religion or by a society that somehow they were created wrong", Garfield adds.

"It asks 'What do we do when our lives are being threatened, when the powers that be don't deem our particular community worthy enough?'" he said. And I just want to say how proud I am to be a part of a community that celebrates diversity and individuality.

But the most unforgettable words came from two-time Oscar victor Robert De Niro while introducing a performance by Bruce Springsteen.

Several winners noted that elections are coming in November - among them playwright Tony Kushner, who wrote "Angels in America", which won best revival of a play.

Members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School sang "Seasons of Love" from the musical "Rent".
