De Niro appeared on stage at New York's Radio City Music Hall to introduce rocker and Tony Awards performer Bruce Springsteen.

Metcalf's award marked the second consecutive Tony for the actress, who a year ago won for best lead actress in a play for her performance in "A Doll's House, Part 2".

"We are all sacred".

"(Let's) just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked", he said, to rousing applause.

"The Band's Visit", about Egyptian musicians stranded in a small Israeli town, swept the musical categories with 10 wins. Check out show clips from The Band's Visit below. And before you knew it, almost everyone in the audience at Radio City Music Hall was on their feet. "It's no longer down with Trump, it's F-ck Trump", he said once more this time pumping two fists in the air. "It's f*** Trump." Even more cheers erupted.

BT chief executive Gavin Patterson to leave at end of year
Jan du Plessis, the chairman of BT, said: "The Board is fully supportive of the strategy recently set out by Gavin and his team". Patterson added: "It's been an honour to lead BT since 2013 and serve as a member of the board for the last ten years".

Best Boat Quote: "All four of tonight's best musical nominees are based on movies", said Tina Fey, "But only one of these movies paid for my boat".

Shalhoub, best known for his role on Monk, exited The Band's Visit earlier this year.

And - in something of a surprise - Steppenwolf Theatre ensemble member and "Roseanne" star Laurie Metcalf capped off an extraordinary career renaissance by winning a Tony for best featured actress in a play for her illuminative work at the core of Joe Mantello's widely acclaimed revival of Edward Albee's "Three Tall Women". 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.

"Angels", Tony Kushner's epic about AIDS during the Reagan years, also won the Tony for Best Revival of a Play. She concluded: "To all the artists out there, be your true self and the world will take note". Onstage guests were volunteers and staffers from three organizations that bring relief to areas impacted by natural disasters.

In an upset, "Once on This Island" beat out "My Fair Lady" and "Carousel" for best revival of a musical. The Tonys didn't specifically address that, but did touch on gun violence, depression, politics and inclusion.
