Tony Awards 2014: List of Winners!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Sunday night marked theater's biggest night, with the exception of every night at the actual theater, as the 68th annual Tony Awards aired on CBS.

The biggest winner of all last night? And ever, for acting Tonys?

Broadway record-breaker Audra McDonald, winner of best dramatic actress for Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill, took home her SIXTH Tony.

McDonald, 43, bested Angela Lansbury and Julie Harris' previous records of five acting Tony Awards each, and gave an emotional speech to the crowd.

The Radio City Music Hall audience acknowledged the significance of the achievement with a prolonged standing ovation, bringing her to tears.

McDonald cried openly, and acknowledged Lena Horne, Diahann Carroll, Ruby Dee, Maya Angelou and Billie Holiday, whom she plays in the drama.

Bryan Cranston also brought down the house with a win for best dramatic actor as President Lyndon B. Johnson in Robert Schenkkan's All the Way.

Returning after a nine-year absence for his fourth stint at host, Hugh Jackman brought his trademark sex appeal and charm to the Music Hall stage.
