The Tony Awards were held last night, and besides the terrific performance by the Parkland students, the big winners of the night were The Band’s Visit, Angels in America, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Josh Groban And Sara Bareilles hosted the ceremony (now, that is a great hosting duet), and kicked off the night with a song dedicated to all the losers.

Even their novelty songs are catchy and melodious.

The speech of the night went to Andrew Garfield, who won for his role in Angels in America. “Let’s just bake a cake to everyone who wants a cake to be baked.”

The most awkward moment of the Tonys took place on Twitter, between Neil Patrick Harris and Rachel Bloom.

Yikes.

The biggest crowd-pleasing moment? Robert DeNiro knows how to appeal to a Tony audience, doesn’t he? Cheap, but effective!

Finally, here were your winners.
