Broadway’s biggest night was a gathering of Hollywood’s finest when the American Theatre Wing handed out its 64th annual Tony Awards yesterday evening. Sean Hayes, perhaps best known for his role in TV’s “Will & Grace,” served as emcee, opening the show behind a piano during a medley of numbers from nominated musicals. A-list attendees including Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith (producers of nominee “Fela!”) and Matthew Morrison (who later took the stage with “Glee” co-star Lea Michele) clapped along as Green Day performed hits from their show “American Idiot.” Solidifying the night as the tabloid mainstays’ to lose, Scarlett Johansson took home the evening’s first trophy, the award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play, for her work in “A View from the Bridge.” For the full list of winners, visit www.tonyawards.com.
