2016 TONY Award winners

2016 TONYs

 

The 2016 Tony Awards were handed out Sunday night at New York’s Beacon Theater, with Hamilton taking home a whopping 11 awards.  The musical made history being nominated for 16 noms too.

Other winners include The Humans for best play, Jessica Lange for best actress in a play (getting her one step closer to an EGOT), and Frank Langella for best actor in a play.

Host James Corden introduced the 2016 Tony Awards at New York’s Beacon Theatre with a touching tribute to Sunday’s mass shooting in Orlando — Sunday’s show was dedicated to the victims of the shooting.

“Our hearts go out to all of those affected by this atrocity,” said the “Late Late Show” host. “All we can say is you are not on your own right now. Your tragedy is our tragedy. Theater is a place where every race, creed sexuality and gender is equal, is embraced and is loved. Hate will never win. Together we have to make sure of that. “
