The Newsweek columnist who suggested that openly gay actors couldn't play heterosexuals was a dumbass, but he wasn't off the mark with regard to Sean Hayes, who demonstrated how unconvincing he was as a straight man when -- during a fairly amusing gag-- he deep tongued Kristen Chenowith last night at the Tony Awards. Sloppy form, Mr. Hayes. Sloppy form.

I don't know dupe about Broadway, but I do recognize a few names from the list of The 2010 Tony Award winners last night, which included Denzel Washington and Viola Davis. And no offense against Broadway, but I don't think it helps the integrity of the Tony Awards to give Scarlett Johansson an award for best performance of anything, unless that performance is for drooling.

Here were the winners you were too busy ignoring last night in favor of "Breaking Bad," "True Blood,' or the NBA Finals.
