A Complete List Of The 2017 Tony Award Winners

The 2017 Tony Awards have finally arrived.

One year after “Hamilton: An American Musical” vied for a record 16 statues at the annual ceremony, the Broadway scene looks a little different. Without a clear Tonys frontrunner, a number of critically-acclaimed musicals and plays competed for recognition, including favorites like the Ben Platt–led musical “Dear Evan Hansen” and the Pulitzer-winning play “Sweat.” (The former prevailed, while the latter lost to “Oslo.”) 

Hosted by your favorite “House of Cards” villain Kevin Spacey, the 71st edition of the awards show featured an impressive roster of celebrities: Mark Hamill introduced the night’s “In Memoriam” segment that paid tribute to his former co-star, Carrie Fisher. Another “Star Wars” alum, 86-year-old James Earl Jones, was honored with a Tony for lifetime achievement. Bette Midler won her first competitive Tony award for her performance in “Hello, Dolly!” (She unfortunately did not perform; co-star David Hyde Pierce took her place.)

Other stars who made appearances included Stephen Colbert, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tina Fey, Keegan-Michael Key and more. And Broadway fans outside of New York City caught performances from several musicals beyond “Dear Evan Hansen,” like “Come From Away,” “Groundhog Day,” “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812,” “Falsettos” and “Miss Saigon.”

Taking place a year after the devastating shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, the 2017 ceremony was a joyous occasion filled with emotional speeches. Check out every win of the night below, so you can continue the Tony toasting long after the broadcast on CBS.
