Here are the winners of the 71st Annual Tony Awards

By Tim Surette,

The 71st Annual Tony Awards were held Sunday night in New York City and broadcast by CBS, with host Kevin Spacey helping stage luminaries hand out trophies for the best that Broadway has to offer.

With no play or musical ready to dominate like clear-winner Hamilton did last year, it was mostly up to a few favorites: Dear Evan Hansen, Oslo, and Hello Dolly! to take home the big prizes in their respective categories. And for the most part they did; Dear Evan Hansen won five awards, including Best Musicalto be the big winner of the night. And somewhere, Bette Midler is still giving her acceptance speech.
