Yeah, he was talkin' to you, Trump!
Aside from Robert De Niro's entertainingly vulgar salutation to Trump, who is currently in Singapore kissing Kim Jong-un's ring and helping to normalize that utterly irredeemable despot, the rest of the Tony winners were as follows:

Kevin Spacey, widely known to be glass-closeted — and no, practically being out is not the same as being out — engaged in some coy jokes about being closeted in the (effortful) opening of the Tony Awards tonigth, which he hosted.
First, there was a closet joke with Whoopi Goldberg.
Next, he dressed up as Norma Desmond and sang, “I'm coming out ... no, wait.”
I don't like rich, successful, perfectly well-adjusted stars with zero reason not to acknowledge they're gay who do not actually acknowledge they're gay. It's 2017. Speaking of which, it's almost a year to the day since the Pulse gay nightclub massacre, and it's LGBTQ Pride Month and it's the same day as the National Equality March, so whatever you think of stars who remain closeted for any reason, is this really the day to be making cutesy closet jokes?

An American in Paris, Fun Home and Something Rotten! received 34 Tony nominations between them, meaning Best Musical is going to be pretty cutthroat this year.
Congrats to out actor Max von Essen for his nomination. He recently decried the need for Broadway actors to stay closeted; oddly, some of them still are.
