Last night while I was traveling back from Hawaii, the Tony Awards were aired on CBS. Readers of DtvB know that I hate, hate, hate award shows. I never watch them. I don't go to Oscar parties. I don't TiVo them. There is one exception and that's the Tony Awards. I could care less about the winner of the lesser categories or listening to the speeches, but I love watching the performances by the new casts. It's not like television or movies where I could watch the nominees at any time. With Broadway I don't have the opportunity to watch all the nominees so I now always TiVo the show. I haven't watched it all yet but I did get to see gay Justin from Ugly Betty interact with the cast from of Mary Poppins.
I was also very happy to see newly out Niles
win for lead actor in Curtains
. I had never heard of it. He thanked his partner which was great. Gay people make the world a better place.
