Kevin Spacey was the host of the Tony Awards event, held at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The show included the stunning appearance from various celebrities including Stephen Colbert, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tina Fey and Whoopi Goldberg. Spacey who is a former Tony winner carried an opening number that directed each nominee for the Best Musical.
The show had both best and worst memorable moments including:
Kevin Spacey: it is not a secret that Spacey was not the first option to host Tony Awards show. He pretended to struggle over what he could do to be the best host for the day. The right host should confidently be in charge of the event and ready to save any embarrassing moment. Spacey decided to become the host after a long thought over how best to make a great host. He guided the dancing chorus on a higher note dressed in Astaire-like attire.
Spacey is not good in singing and dancing and tried his best by cracking self-deprecating jokes during his opening remarks to clarify the point. While he had some great memories from the show, Spacey his top role as a host for the event didn’t earn him good marks.
Ben Platt: at only 23 years, Platt had already won the Best Actor in music. He stunned the audience by leading his cast when performing the ‘Waving Through a Window’. Platt’s behavior during his speech mirrored those seen in his previous plays. The most memorable part of his speech came when he highlighted the main theme from the music that says, ‘don’t waste time trying to become other people but you.’
Rebecca Taichman: she won the Tony Award for her work on the Indecent play. Her speech was so encouraging especially to other women of every race.
Benj Pasek and Justin Paul: the two songwriters won the best award for their Dear Evan Hansen. They had earlier won an Academy Award their song La La Land.
Alex Lacamoire: he won the Best Orchestrations for the second time in a year now. He also won his first Tony award in 2008 for In the Height.
