Robert DeNiro Says 'F**k Trump' Twice At Tony Awards

Tina Fey is a superstar and she wrote a snappy, smart script for "Mean Girls", a musical based on her popular 2004 movie.

Shalhoub, best known for his role on Monk, exited The Band's Visit earlier this year.

Best Introduction: "I am attractive theater actress, Amy Schumer", said Amy Schumer, introducing My Fair Lady, "a comedy about class and sexism", when Eliza Doolittle is taken under the wing of Henry Higgins, "mans-splaining expert on dialects".

Actor Robert De Niro used the opportunity of the Tony Award ceremony to fling insults at the United States president. "This is deeply appreciated, and thanks for making me feel so welcome on your block", The Boss said.

De Niro's comments brought the cheering crowd at Radio City Music Hall to its feet but were bleeped for USA television audiences.

The victor for best featured actress in a musical was Lindsay Mendez for her work in the revival of "Carousel".

In her acceptance speech, telling Tony hopefuls to be true to themselves, Mendez said that when she had first moved to NY, she had been told she would need to change her name.

Who's Hosting?: Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles have been named this year's emcees. "And after 9/11 it was very, very hard for me and so I concealed and I missed so many special events with them".

But The Band's Visit wasn't the only Israel presence at the awards ceremony. He finished by saying: "Your biggest obstacle may turn into your objective".

Radio City Music Hall was awash in tears when the drama students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, Fla., sang "Seasons of Love" from "Rent", a show written by Jonathan Larson, who, like the kids caught up in the February massacre at the school, died far too young. The CBS television audience heard dead silence instead before he raised his arms - twice - and earned a sustained standing ovation. His admission letter to Hogwarts is undoubtedly on its way.

And - in something of a surprise - Steppenwolf Theatre ensemble member and "Roseanne" star Laurie Metcalf capped off an extraordinary career renaissance by winning a Tony for best featured actress in a play for her illuminative work at the core of Joe Mantello's widely acclaimed revival of Edward Albee's "Three Tall Women". "It's no longer down with Trump". He also looked touched, but mostly that he wanted to use a little of that Harry Potter magic to disappear. "I mean, if you're Donald Trump, it doesn't mean anything".

"I'm just going to say one thing", he began according to Deadline. Anyone want to chip in for bail money? "Happy birthday, Judy Garland!"

"Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" won the Tony for best play on Sunday while "The Band's Visit" swept the musical categories with 10 wins, including the top award best musical at Broadway's annual honors for the best in theater.

This charming show beat back stiff challenges from two revivals of American musical-theater classics: "Carousel" and "My Fair Lady".
