Host Neil Patrick Harris summarized the event in a brilliant rap to conclude the show, Daniel Radcliffe proved that he can do a lot more than just cast spells on the big screen and two stars from Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark managed not to hurt anyone during a sneak peek at that controversial show.

Watch various performances from the event below.

Following his vicious rant against gay people during a stand-up set in Nashville, Tracy Morgan issued an apology and admitted he crossed a line with his violent word choice.

Case closed, right? Not for CNN contributor Roland Martin.

In a blog entry, the journalist wondered by Morgan has to issue a mea culp "for saying nasty, vicious and vile things during a stand-up routine."

"Isn't that par for the course of a comedian?" Martin wrote. "There isn't enough space on the Internet to chronicle the number of times a comedian has said nasty and vile things. Some of it leading the audience to fall out laughing or sometimes, or as in the case of Morgan, walk out in protest."

But didn't Martin jump all over Michael Richards in 2006, following that actor's racist diatribe?

Conan O'Brien earned an honorary degree from Dartmouth over the weekend, a fact he brought up in mocking, self-deprecating fashion while delivering the commencement address at the university on Sunday.

“My first job as your commencement speaker is to illustrate that life is not fair,” he said. “For instance, you have worked tirelessly for four years to earn the diploma you’ll be receiving this weekend. And Dartmouth is giving me the same degree for interviewing the fourth lead in Twilight. Deal with it.”

The comedian also used his own experience - a certain late-night talk show ousting - to send a message to everyone in the audience. He told them:

“Like many people, I thought that achieving that goal would define me as successful. But that is not true. No specific job or career goal defines me, and it should not define you... whether you fear it or not, disappointment will come. The beauty is that through disappointment you can gain clarity, and with clarity comes conviction and true originality.”

Watch the full speech above and then sound off: Just how awesome is Conan O'Brien?!?

The entire Anthony Weiner scandal is a sad state of affairs.

It's hard not to feel sorry for Weiner's wife, his constituents, the state of politics itself.

But it's also hard not to watch the following video and think the whole thing was worthwhile. In it, Bill Maher and Jane Lynch recite, word-for-word, an exchange between the Congressman and one of his Internet mistresses. Again, remember: this exact conversation actually took place online...

Do we have a Glee and Gossip Girl love connection on our hands?

Insiders tell Life & Style that Dianna Agron and Sebastian Stan have coupled up, as the latter visited the former during a recent Glee concert tour stop.

"He came to Dianna's 3 p.m. Glee performance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on May 28," says the source. "He waited for her backstage. Once the cast finished the show, Dianna ran backstage to Sebastian, and they were all over each other!"

Agron split from Alex Pettyfer in February, while Stan ended his relationship with Leighton Meester in early 2010.

On one hand, Soulja Boy makes a decent point in a new online rant:

How big of a loser must you be to become someone's friend on Facebook, solely to post hateful messages regarding that individual's work?

On the other hand... well, the rapper goes a bit far in his latest diatribe, using language that would make Tracy Morgan proud and turning the problem of Internet trolls into a race issue. This is what Soulja Boy posted over the weekend:

Man. Even LeBron James didn't go there when reacting to his critics.

When LeBron James joined the Miami Heat last year - essentially admitting that he couldn't handle the burden of leading the Cleveland Cavs to a NBA title - he became the most polarizing figure in professional sports.

Therefore, when the favored Heat lost Game Six of the Finals last night to the Dallas Mavericks, critics around the country celebrated.

That's Karma for screwing over Cleveland, they cried, pointing to James' subpar stats in the series (18 fourth quarter points... total) as proof that he can't handle the pressure.

LeBron James Pep Rally Pic

Yes, the Heat did... hold an unseemly, premature pep rally that crowned themselves champion before a single game was played.

At the podium after the game, James was asked if he cared about such reaction. His reply likely didn't make him any new fans:

“All the people that were rooting me on to fail, at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life they had before,” LeBron said. “They have the same personal problems they had today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want with me and my family and be happy with that.”

In other words: hate on, haters. But your life still sucks compared to mine and, get a life, this is just sports.

Were you happy to see the Heat lose?

Clarence Clemons, a mainstay in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, suffered a stroke last night.

Reports say the saxophonist known as "The Big Man" fell ill at his home Florida. Not much is known about the 69-year old's condition, but entertainment journalist Roger Friedman describes it as "serious."

Clemons has been in the news recently for musical reasons: he performed with Lady Gaga on the season finale of American Idol and is featured on the track "Edge of Glory."

He was also scheduled to play the national anthem prior to Game Two of the NBA Finals, but a hand injury forced him to back out.

An original member of Springsteen's iconic group, the rocker gave Clarence a shout-out in the song "Tenth Avenue Freeze-out," crooning: "When the change was made uptown and the Big Man joined the band/From the coastline to the city all the little pretties raise their hands."

Here's to a big recovery by The Big Man.

"This is such a waste of time, like taking a hooker to dinner."

So said Chris Rock at The Tony Awards last night, prior to reading the list of nominees for Best Musical. That's because the winner was more obvious than the eventual resignation of Anthony Weiner.

The Book of Mormon dominated an evening that also saw Brooke Shields curse, Daniel Radcliffe perform, Bono joked about his new musical and Neil Patrick Harris proved that he may be the best host in Hollywood.

We've posted a full list of winners below.
