Our Winners of the 2016 Tony Awards


Cynthia Erivo

Last night’s Tony Awards had some winners and some more winners who left the event empty-handed.

Unsurprisingly, Hamilton won the evening with 11 of it’s 16-nominated awards including “Best Featured Actress in a Musical” to Renee Elise Goldsberry and “Best Score” to Lin-Manuel Miranda who gave a powerful speech honoring the victims in the Orlando tragedy that occurred earlier that day.

Danai Guirira’s 6-nominated play Eclipsed only received the award for “Best Costume Design” while The Color Purple took home two, including “Best Revival” and “Best Leading Actress in A Musical” which went to Cynthia Erivo who performed alongside cast mates Heather Headley, Danielle Brooks and the cast of The Color Purple.
