Andrew Garfield attends the 72nd Annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall

On Sunday, Angels in America actor and newly minted Tony Award victor Andrew Garfield used his speech to advocate for LGBT rights.

Jackson, 82, returning to Broadway after 30 years and a lengthy term as a British politician, was named best actress for her tour-de-force performance in Edward Albee's "Three Tall Women".

The victor for best featured actress in a musical was Lindsay Mendez for her work in the revival of "Carousel". However, it was heard by those in the audience and journalists covering the awards show, which honours the best of Broadway theatre.

The legendary actor urged the audience to vote in November and lauded Springsteen for his own political commitment before the singer sat at a piano for a moving performance based on his Springsteen on Broadway show that had him singing his classic hit, My Hometown. She explained that she had been told to change her last name "from Mendez to Matthews" or risk not being hired, but held fast and earned a Tony Award to prove them wrong.

"Your biggest obstacle", said Stachel of "The Band's Visit", addressing young artists all across the nation, "may turn out to be your goal". And before you knew it, almost everyone in the audience at Radio City Music Hall was on their feet.

DeNiro has been one of Trump's harshest critics in the entertainment industry.

The two-part spectacle "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" captured six, including best play, book, lighting, sound design, orchestrations and director for John Tiffany, who asked the crowd to sing "Happy Birthday" to his boyfriend. When the camera cut to him, it looked like he wanted to pretend he dropped his phone and crawl under the seat in front of him.

"Robert De Niro just yelled "F*** Trump" on national television before introducing Bruce Springsteen, and I am absolutely here for it", one user wrote. And then he admitted in front of many, many witnesses that his dramatic skills killed famed acting coach Lee Strasberg. The show went on to win best musical revival, beating "My Fair Lady" and "Carousel".

Tony Shalhoub, the former star of "Monk" and a founding member of Cambridge's American Repertory Theater, won for best leading actor in a musical, and his costar in "The Band's Visit", Katrina Lenk, won for best actress.
