Tonys 2017: all of the winners at the 71st annual awards

The 71st annual Tony Awards, honoring the best and brightest of Broadway for the 2016-’17 season, handed out 24 golden statuettes on Sunday night. Actor and former Tony winner Kevin Spacey hosted, in a ceremony that had fewer big-band song-and-dance numbers than past Tonys telecasts, and a lot more impressions of various men who were relevant in 1993.

As expected, the runaway favorites in the musical acting categories took away the top prizes: Broadway legend Bette Midler picked up the prize for Best Actress in a Musical for her turn in Hello, Dolly!, and Pitch Perfect’s Ben Platt took away the Tony for Best Actor in a Musical for his role in Dear Evan Hansen.

Dear Evan Hansen was the big winner of the night. In addition to Platt’s Tony, it also won in the categories for featured actress, book, score, and orchestrations, as well as getting crowned Best Musical. It was the crowning achievement in a very good year for Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the songwriting team behind both Dear Evan Hansen and La La Land.

Here are all of the winners at the 71st annual Tony Awards.
