2013 Tony Awards ResultsThis year's Tony Awards proved that if anyone knows how to put on a show, it's Broadway. Neil Patrick Harris returned for his fourth time hosting the ceremony, and he was as charming and witty as ever. He brought us some of his famous mashup concepts for play/musical crossovers, had an intimate moment with Sandy the dog from Annie and, in his musical moments, reminded us that he is a Broadway vet himself, with the chops to prove it. And his closing number with Audra McDonald (Porgy and Bess, TV's Private Practice) might have been the best thing ever.

A highlight of the night was a number that featured Laura Benanti, Andrew Rannells, and Megan Hilty, all lamenting the cancellations of their TV series (Go On, The New Normal, and Smash, respectively). And with presenters including stage and screen actors Jake Gyllenhaal, Sally Field, and Scarlett Johansson as well as characters (that's right, characters) from shows like Chicago and The Lion King, the show's transitions and introductions were even more entertaining than ever.

Kinky Boots won the night with six trophies, proving that Broadway jack-of-all-trades Harvey Fierstein (Newsies, La Cage aux Folles) and pop legend Cyndi Lauper are a formidable team. The London transport Matilda and the circus-inspired revival of Pippin also made strong showings with four awards each. On the play side, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? scored three wins, as did The Nance, starring Nathan Lane (The Producers, The Addams Family).
