In other wins, Glenda Jackson added to her impressive resume with a Tony Award for best actress in a play for her work in a revival of Edward Albee's "Three Tall Women".

The Globe's top picks for what to see and do each weekend, in Boston and beyond.

Most Talented (At Least at Cedar Shoals High School): Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess hit the stage alongside his high school yearbook title and a glorious photo of his first role in the theater.

This charming show beat back stiff challenges from two revivals of American musical-theater classics: "Carousel" and "My Fair Lady". Also shut out was "Frozen, " the stage adaptation of the blockbuster Disney film.

"The Band's Visit" became unstoppable when David Cromer, who staged the show, won for Best Director. "Mean Girls" won nothing and "SpongeBob SquarePants" got only one for best set design.


"The Band's Visit", about Egyptian musicians stranded in a small Israeli town, swept the musical categories with 10 wins.

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. Then Ming-Na Wen presented the education award to Melody Herzfeld, the drama teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who kept her students safe during the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Andrew dedicated his award to the LGBTQ community and referenced the case of a bakery that refused to bake a cake for a gay couple. So, I made a video for those who missed it. To all artists out there, she said: "Just be your true self and the world will take note".

He also praised "a cast of actors who never believed they would be able to portray their own races".

The brief, nearly token, insult provoked a disproportionately strong reaction from the audience at New York's Radio City Music Hall. Both the network and award organizers will anxiously await the ratings for the broadcast. Spacey's ceremony last year drew 6 million viewers, which represented a drop of approximately 31 percent in total viewers from the previous year.
