At the recent Tony Awards, Robert DeNiro yelled "f*** Trump" during a foul-mouthed rant and got a standing ovation for it!

Best Revival of a Play: "Angels in America".

"America", the famously frank Jackson said, graciously, "is always great".

Ah, the Tony Awards, a chance for us theater nerds around the world to tune in, watch stage heroes be rewarded, and get a sneak peek at what's fresh on the Broadway scene.

Despite both Mean Girls and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical leading the pack with 12 nominations each, neither found the same success as The Band's Visit.

"The Band's Visit" also won awards for Best Book (by Itamar Moses), Best Direction of a Musical, Best Original Score (by David Yazbek), Best Lighting Design, Best Orchestration and Best Sound Design.

"For so many years of my life I pretended I was not a Middle Eastern person", he said, addressing his parents in the audience. Her presence at the podium proved that was lousy advice.

As previously reported, De Niro appeared at the Tony Awards, where he took the stage to introduce a performance by Bruce Springsteen and simply opened with some expletives about the president. "The boss", said Joel, noting Springsteen's hundreds of sold-out performances, "is working hard". "This is deeply appreciated, and thanks for making me feel so welcome on your block", The Boss said. He was bleeped out.

"Harry Potter", a record-setting $69 million two-part production set 19 years after the last of J.K. Rowling's best-selling novels about the boy wizard, won a total of six Tonys including best new play and best director. "We all belong. So I dedicate this award to the countless LGBTQ people who have fought and died to protect that spirit, to protect that message for the right to live and love as we are created to". Marking her first Tony nomination and win, Lenk beat out five other actresses for the award - including 2001 Evanston Township High School alumna Jessie Mueller, who was nominated in the category for her role in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel".
