Robert De Niro Exclaims "F-ck Trump" At Tony Awards

Josh Groban Sara Bareilles

Who's Hosting?: Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles have been named this year's emcees.

That could also describe the performances of Ms. Bareilles and Mr. Groban, who were a likable and entertaining pair, particularly in a song celebrating the eight-shows-a-week stamina of Broadway performers.

The 2018 Tony Awards are officially here!

Past Tony champs slated to return to the stage to name new winners include John Leguizamo, Patti LuPone, Kelli O'Hara, Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Marissa Jaret Winokur.

Actor Robert De Niro used the opportunity of the Tony Award ceremony to fling insults at the U.S. president. However, "Carousel" choreographer Justin Peck won the Tony, and cast member Lindsay Mendez won the the Tony for best supporting actress. Then her students showed up to perform "Seasons of Love" and earned a standing ovation from the gathered Broadway Royalty. That show also yielded the featured actress win to "Rosanne" star Laurie Metcalf.

Verizon names new CEO to lead 5G push
Some analysts had expected John Stratton , Verizon's president of global operations, to succeed McAdam, who said he will retire. As CTO, Vestberg was the architect of the company's 4G LTE rollout and its plans to build a 5G wireless broadband network.

CBS ended up bleeping a huge sections of his remarks in an attempt to censor the profanity - and that left many wondering exactly what De Niro had said.

The Oscar-winning actor has been a frequent, and sometimes coarse, critic of Trump. He also looked touched, but mostly that he wanted to use a little of that Harry Potter magic to disappear. "I have avoided so many events with them because for so many years of my life I pretended I was not a Middle Eastern person", he said. "It didn't just change me, it saved me", he said.

The victor of the evening's first award, the Angels in America revivalstar Andrew Garfield, set the emotional tone for tonight's Tonys, offering his Best Actor in a Play win up in tribute to the LGBTQ community. One production number after another, from "My Fair Lady" to "Carousel" (with Justin Peck's choreography) to "Summer: The Donna Summer Musical" tapped that current.

Most Frustrating Beep: Robert DeNiro took the stage and then let loose with ...something that was vehemently beeped out by the producers before sullying the ears of the at-home audience.
