Robert De Niro Exclaims "F-ck Trump" At Tony Awards

Robert De Niro Exclaims

Garfield, who in "Angels in America" plays Prior Walter, a gay man coping with AIDS and abandonment by his boyfriend, dedicated his award to "the countless LGBTQ people who have fought and died for the right to live and love" as they choose.

That could also describe the performances of Ms. Bareilles and Mr. Groban, who were a likable and entertaining pair, particularly in a song celebrating the eight-shows-a-week stamina of Broadway performers.

In a mesmerising moment, Melody Herzfeld, the heroic drama teacher who nurtured numerous young people demanding change following the February school shooting in Parkland, Florida, was honoured from the Tony Award stage. Lane, Glenda Jackson, the lifetime-achievement winners Chita Rivera and Andrew Lloyd Webber, and, in spirit, Donna Summer.

Just when you thought the 2018 Tony Awards would conclude with nary a mention of President Donald Trump, along came Robert De Niro.

Best Advice: "Be your true self and the world will take note", said Lindsay Mendez accepting her award for Featured Actress in a Musical for her work in Carousel. The crowd sprang to their feet in a standing ovation and a wave of cheers. That show also yielded the featured actress win to "Rosanne" star Laurie Metcalf. His admission letter to Hogwarts is undoubtedly on its way.

Jackson, 82, returning to Broadway after 30 years and a lengthy term as a British politician, was named best actress for her tour-de-force performance in Edward Albee's "Three Tall Women".

Viewers watching along at home freaked out as CBS managed to censor most of what was said.

The Oscar-winning actor has been a frequent, and sometimes coarse, critic of Trump. When the camera cut to him, it looked like he wanted to pretend he dropped his phone and crawl under the seat in front of him. I'm so proud of you, my cast, this is the craziest moment of my life, I never thought I'd be there. "It didn't just change me, it saved me", he said. Anyone want to chip in for bail money? "Happy birthday, Judy Garland!"

Most Famous Goat: Once On This Island won best musical revival, meaning that its resident goat is now the most famous goat on Broadway.

The audience then erupted in cheers and stood clapping.
