  • Sunday's Tony Awards were did not disappoint. Though Neil Patrick Harris wasn't hosting this year (that honor went to Hugh Jackman), Harris found a sure-fire way to steal the show: lap dances.
    The Hedwig and the Angry Inch star joined his cast members on stage for a performance of "Sugar Daddy," but soon Harris was in the crowd, gyrating on Sting and licking Samuel L. Jackson's classes.
    While Harris definitely secured the night's most-talked about moment, Jackman put up some competition, rapping The Music Man with LL Cool J and T.I.
    As for the winners, four-time Tony host Harris won his first Tony for Best Actor in a Musical (getting him halfway to an EGOT). He was joined by Bryan Cranston, who is also halfway to that prestigious title after winning Best Actor in a Play for All the Way.
    All the Way also took home the honor for Best Play, while A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder won Best Musical. Audra McDonald also made history when she won her sixth Tony for Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill, topping the previous record held by Angela Lansbury and Julie Harris. Check out the full list of winners below.
