The annual award which is actually named the Antoinette Perry Award for Excellence in Broadway Theatre is a celebration of excellence in Broadway Theatre. These awards, which also include non-competitive awards, are presented by the American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League for Broadway productions and performances.
The awards are named after Antoinette “Tony” Perry, a co-founder of the American Theatre Wing.
The Tony Awards are considered the highest U.S theatre honor, equivalent to the Academy Awards (Oscars) for motion pictures (movies); the Grammy Awards for music and the Emmy Awards for television.
The Tony forms the fourth spoke in the EGOT (an acronym for all four awards) for someone who has won all four awards.
The Tony was hosted by Kevin Spacey and had in attendance notable celebrities who strutted the red carpet in their “Sunday’s best.”
Our eagle eyes caught on some beautiful celebs and we compiled a best dressed list (our opinion) for this special night.
