I was sleeping. With little fanfare (or so it seems to me) the Tony Awards happened last night. Did you know? I absolutely did not. I remember taking a glance at the nominees a little while back, feeling generally unawares, and then forgetting. Either way... I think this picture of Daniel Radcliffe standing next to a very bizarre looking Katie Holmes says it all. Look at his face! He looks perturbed at being dwarfed by Mrs. Tom Cruise and her ill-fitting dress. Observation: dress too small for boobs. The bodice looks 100% uncomfortable and boob binding. I'm also voting a big no on the shoes. Not working.
Anyhow, when Glee cast members weren't singing, last night's Tony Awards were apparently dominated by film actors. Scarlett Johansson beat out the competition to win a Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play award for her stage debut in A View From the Bridge. Seeing that she has been repeatedly plagued over the last few years by criticism that she can't offer up the full range of emotion in her acting, her win feels most noteworthy. Denzel Washington and Catherine Zeta-Jones also took home Tonys for Lead Actor in a Play (Fences) and Lead Actress in a Musical (A Little Night Music), respectively. The top awards went to a couple shows that were not Green Day related (take that American Idiot! (yeah, I'm not a Green Day fan)). Best Play went to Red, about the trials and tribulations of artist Mark Rothko. Best Musical went to 1950's Southern rock n' roll show Memphis. The Revival honors for Play and Musical were awarded to Fences and the ever-triumphant La Cage aux Folles.
