'Fun Home' (Not Phone Home) Wins Big at the Tonys: All the Winners!
Hosted by Alan Cumming and Kristen Chenoweth, the Tony Awards telecast was marked by major stars as presenters (Jennifer Lopez, Bradley Cooper, Joe Manganiello); awards spread out evenly among some of the year's hot-ticket shows ("Fun Home," "The King and I," "Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time"); and show-stopping performances from the likes of living legend Chita Rivera ("The Visit"), "Glee" star Matthew Morrison and Kelsey Grammer (snubbed box-office hit "Finding Neverland"), and the stars of director David Hyde Pierce's "It Shoulda Been You," Tyne Daly and Lisa Howard.
Alan and Kristen kept the self-deprecating one-liners coming, but maybe the funniest moment was when Kristen appeared in an "E.T." outfit after a performance of a song from "Fun Home," only to be told it wasn't "phone home."
