It's a TonyAwards tradition to save "the last piece 

Inside the Tony Award winners room the assembled media applauded when Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane names were named, winning for best actor and best-featured actor in a play for the hit revival of Tony Kushner’s epic “Angels in America.”
It's always nice to "go home again" in a sense with another revival, of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical “Carousel" which moved voters, earning an early win for featured actress Lindsay Mendez and choreographer Justin Peck.
The assembled Tony Award audience and the media room let out a collective "gasp of suprise" when former “Roseanne” star Laurie Metcalf won a Tony for best-featured actress in a play for the revival “Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women” — this after winning last year Best Actress in a play for “A Doll’s House, Part 2.”
Bruce Springsteen and John Leguizamo received special Tony Awards for their one-man shows this past season — Leguizamo’s “Latin History for Morons” also competed in the Best Play category.
The awards, presented by the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, previously announced that actress Chita Rivera and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber will received lifetime achievement awards.
Music stars and past Tony nominees Sara Bareilles (“Waitress”) and Josh Groban (“Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812”) are co-hosting this year’s ceremony.
