Denzel Washington and Scarlett Johansson Lead List of Tony Award Winners

by at . Comments

The Tony Awards celebrate the best on Broadway, but they were hijacked by Hollywood heavyweights last night.

Among the night's biggest winners were Scarlett Johansson, Denzel Washington and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Said the former, who was honored for her role in the revival of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge:

"Being welcomed into this community has been a dream come true for me. Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be on Broadway, and here I am."

Denzel, already an Academy Award winner, referred to himself as "amazed, surprised and blessed" for winning Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play.

Other major stars at the event included Jay Z, Beyonce, Daniel Radcliffe and Katie Holmes. Click on the following photos for a closer look at many celebs on the red carpet:
