The 64th Annual Tony Awards Lays Out Its RED
Carpet For Hollywood A-Listers:

Last night, the who's-who scene at Radio City Music Hall was close to an Oscar line-up: Laura Linney, Katie Holmes, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber, Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas, Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Renolds, Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas, Daniel Radcliffe, Christopher Walken, Kelsey Gramer, Paula Abdul and Cate Blanchett, who always carries herself like a real star, were among just a few of the Hollywood A-Listers.

The leading ladies last night Scarlett Johansson and Catherine Zeta Jones, each taking home Best Actress in their category while Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, who are both staring in the classic play Fences on Broadway, picked up Tony Awards for best actors. I wonder if the rest of the nominees were left seeing RED? Big disappointment was Alfred Molino, his third Tony nomination, who is just brilliant in the play. Molino and last night's Tony winner, Eddie Redmayne comprise the anguished two-man drama about painter Mark Rothko and the timeless tug of war between art and commerce.

Another star of the evening was Sean Hayes, who did not have an envelope opening success story but still shined bright as Host of the 64th Annual Tony Awards. Though Hayes has been at the center of an ongoing controversy fueled by a Newsweek writer who criticized the actor's performance because he's a gay man playing it straight on Broadway in "Promises, Promises," the audience absolutely loved him (and the opening act on the piano was brilliant!). His kiss, eluding to the Newsweek controversy, proved he has the upper hand and his superman costume and arrival on stage was truly LOL-worthy...

One of the truly show-stopping moments of the evening was the close of the evening, which ended with an electric win on stage by the Memphis cast, proving that even though the musical got off to slow this fall (which certainly picked up following a visit from First Lady Michelle Obama who took her daughters Sasha and Malia) what a gem this show really is......

The best acceptance speech of the night has to go to Zeta Jones, who paid homage not only to her fellow nominees but also confessed to sleeping with a movie star every night. That would of course be her husband, Michael Douglas.
