'The Band's Visit' and 'Harry Potter' win big at Tonys

Andrew Garfield attends the 72nd Annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall

"I'm going to say one thing: 'F- Trump, '" said the actor, who was presenting an award at the ceremony.

"I'm gonna say one thing: F-k Trump", De Niro shouted, raising his arms into the air as the crowd cheered for almost half a minute. "Fuck Trump. It's no longer down with Trump".

Kushner would later offer up a more serious answer on the matter adding that he agreed with De Niro, referring to Trump's election as the "Hitler mistake". "I love the Tony Awards", another wrote. It's a sentiment that certainly applies to the kids from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School theater department, whose performance of Rent's "Seasons of Love" earned the most genuine standing ovation of the night and left the A-list crowd wiping away tears.

Halep beats Muguruza at French Open to reach 4th Slam final
But it took Muguruza quite a while to get going against Halep, who managed to keep sending ball after ball back over the net. Three previous times, the other player - be it Maria Sharapova , Jelena Ostapenko or Caroline Wozniacki - won that third set.

"The Band's Visit", based on a relatively obscure 2007 Israeli film by Eran Kolirin about an Egyptian police band lost in a small Israeli town, had an exceptional night, taking home Tony Awards for its composer David Yazbek, its book-writer Itamar Moses (who beat out the favored Tina Fey), its featured actor, Ari'el Stachel and its two leading performers, Tony Shalhoub and the Chicago-born Katrina Lenk, a graduate of Northwestern University.

"Harry Potter", a record-setting $69 million two-part production set 19 years after the last of J.K. Rowling's best-selling novels about the boy wizard, won a total of six Tonys including best new play and best director. And we have a word for that: "bullsh*t", he said last week while praising the winners of the first Jimmy and Rosemary Breslin American Writer Award in NY.

De Niro's comments brought the cheering crowd at Radio City Music Hall to its feet but were bleeped for US television audiences.

Macron: G7 leaders must be civil as they pressure Trump

According to US Today, Tony Award victor John Tiffany, who won for his role in the hit Broadway show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, was making his way into the media room just as the Meet The Focker's actor went rogue. So, I made a video for those who missed it.

Many congrats to Stachel on his first Tony win!

Many critics have tapped The Band's Visit as their odds-on favourite to be crowned best new musical. The show went on to win best musical revival, beating "My Fair Lady" and "Carousel".
