Well, aside from Jersey Boys winning Best Musical and the History Boys winning Best Play, the real story last night was how many TV stars got their start on Broadway! To pay homage to the Great White Way, many of these stars made their way back to the bright lights for last night's Tony Awards. Kristin Bell took her sunglasses off for long enough to present the Best Revival award while Sara Ramirez and T.R. Knight gave away the Best Featured Actress in a Musical award. As you might remember, Ramirez won this award last year for her role as The Lady of the Lake in Spamalot. Plenty of our other favorite TV stars showed up to spice up Tony night, including Oprah, Paul Rudd, and last night's winner of Best Leading Actress in a Play, Cynthia Nixon (Miranda on Sex and the City).
