The History Boys won six Tonys in total, with honors for actor Richard Griffiths, director Nicholas Hytner, featured actress Frances De La Tour, and two technical prizes for the classroom set and lighting.
Former Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon was named Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play for Rabbit Hole.
Aside from the impressive talents receiving awards, the Tonys were also graced with a steady stream of guest hosts and stars including Winfrey and Roberts, whose own critically panned stage debut in Three Days of Rain was not even nominated.
