The lullaby of Broadway was gleaming with tinsel at Sunday’s 64th Tony Awards held at New York City’s famed Radio City Music Hall, as Hollywood A-listers Denzel Washington, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Scarlett Johansson all took home high honors for their stage efforts, and RadarOnline.com has all the scoop for you.
Johansson won the best featured actress in a play for A View From the Bridge. She thanked her hubby, actor Ryan Reynolds, for the patience he displayed toward the endless hours she put into honing her work on the stage.
“To my Canadian, whom I live with, Ryan thank you for becoming a theater widower with me,” she said.
Washington, saying he was “really happy” about the win, humbly credited his stage success to the strength of his play, August Wilson’s Fences.
“It’s one of the best plays, Pulitzer Prize-winning,” the two-time Oscar-winner said after the show. “It’s a great play.”
A stunned Zeta-Jones, who won best leading actress in a musical for her work in A Little Night Music, gave a memorable speech after her win, thanking co-star Alexander Hanson, director Trevor Nunn and hubby Michael Douglas.
“See that man there?” she said, pointing toward Douglas in the audience. “He’s a movie star and I get to sleep with him every night!”
