Photos, Videos: Robert De Niro Declares 'F*** Trump' During Tony Awards

Photos, Videos: Robert De Niro Declares 'F*** Trump' During Tony Awards

But musical Mean Girls, based on the 2004 film, went away empty-handed after receiving 12 nominations.

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".

"So I dedicate this award to the countless LGBTQ who have fought and died to protect that spirit", he said.

Viewers will see performances from "The Band's Visit", "Carousel", "Frozen", "Mean Girls", "My Fair Lady", "Once on This Island", "SpongeBob SquarePants" and "Summer: The Donna Summer Musical".

Andrew Garfield, accepting his Tony for best lead actor in a play for Angels In America, said, "It is a spirit that says we are all made perfectly".

De Niro then introduced Bruce Springsteen, who performed and was presented with a special award.

Crocodile jumps from Ethiopian lake and kills pastor during mass baptism
While hardly an everyday occurrence, crocodile attacks are a known risk in Ethiopia - as in any region where they thrive. The Telegraph reported that lake and riverside baptisms are common in many African countries, notwithstanding the risk.

Beside her Tony win, the theater actress was also voted as Best Featured Actress in the musical in Broadway World's annual Theater Fans' Choice Awards. In 2012, he won Best Direction of a Musical for "Once".

In a paean to the LGBT community, actor Andrew Garfield encouraged the audience at the 72nd annual Tony Awards to "bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked". "To Paul Libin who said yes when we brought 1,000 pounds of sand, a hundred gallons of water, a goat and two chickens into his theater".

Angels playwright Tony Kushner also took the stage when the play was given the Tony for best revival.

The Tonys, hosted by singer-songriter-actors Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles, capped another record year on Broadway with $1.7 billion in box office receipts, despite the smallest number of new productions in 20 years. How did this happen, and why have I not done a musical before?' It's hard for me to believe those other guys weren't chosen. Glenda Jackson, 82, won best actress in a play for her fiery portrayal of an elderly woman in "Three Tall Women", and her co-star, Laurie Metcalf, won featured actress.

As for the Audra connection, Mendez has tried to keep the six-time Tony victor out of mind while crafting her own take on the role. "It just may take a bit longer".

It's too bad because Once on This Island proved that it deserved the win with the best performance of the evening, a jubilant event that culminated with Nathan Lane having a close encounter with a goat. Unlike many awards show hosts who either go AWOL for too much of the proceedings or drag things out with over-exposure, Bareilles and Groban were a welcome connective thread throughout, most disarmingly when they sang a mock-serious dirge about the rigors of the eight-show week. Viewership spiked in 2016 due to "Hamilton, " only to drop sharply past year.
