Rosie O'Donnell Tony : Tony Awards 2014 top moments and highlights The 68th annual Tony Awards saw firsts for Bryan Crantson and Neil Patrick and a record-breaking win for Audra McDonald. Broadway's biggest night honored "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" with best musical and "All the Way" for best play. Both productions scored four honors each. "The little engine that could, did," said Joey Parnes lead producer of "A Gentleman's Guide." "Please go see them all!" he urged about the other Broadway musicals. The awards show got off to a hoppin' start with Hugh Jackman Sunday in New York. The evening's host entered Radio City Music Hall hopping his way from the city streets, down the aisles and then backstage where he proceeded to meet the cast members from many of today's biggest Broadway shows. 2014 Tony Awards winners "All the Way" won best play -- and its lead star, Cranston, snagged his first Tony, taking home best lead actor in a play for playing former President Lyndon B. Johnson in his Broadway debut. The former "Breaking Bad" star beat out Samuel Barnett from "Twelfth Night," Chris O'Dowd from "Of Mice and Men," Mark Rylance of "Richard III" and Tony Shalhoub with "Act One." The lead actor in a musical honor went to Harris for his portrayal of a German transsexual in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." Upon hitting the stage, the former "How I Met Your Mother" star said, "A year ago I was hosting the Tony, this is crazy pants!" And now he has a Tony to his name. The actor edged out Ramin Karimloo of "Les Miserables," Andy Karl from "Rocky" along with Jefferson Mays and Bryce Pinkham, who both star in "A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder." Prior to his Tonys acceptance Harris did a rousing performance from "Hedwig" during which he gave Sting a lap dance and planted a passionate kiss on his husband David Burtka.
