Scarlett Johansson and Denzel Washington Receive Tony Awards

June 14th, 2010 // Leave a Comment

Maybe Scarlett Johansson knew that her feature role in in the revival of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge was Tony-worthy, because she decided to go with one of her statement dresses verse muted beige she’s been fond of lately.

Taking home the first Tony award of the night, Scar Jo expressed her gratitude to the theater community and “the Canadian I live with,” her husband Ryan Reynolds who was in attendance! They usually like each other hot and sweaty, but maybe they’re now appreciating each other’s red carpet style.

The award show, hosted by Will & Grace Emmy winner Sean Hayes, focused on America’s theatrical past according to PEOPLE.

A lot of well known film actors took home Tonys in addition to Johansson. Best Actor and Actress went to Denzel Washington and Viola Davis for Fences and La Cage aux Folles respectively.

Catherine Zeta-Jones also took home best actress in the musical revival of Stephen Sondheim’s 1973 A
Little Night Music
. I’m sure she could barely contain her excitement about  not having to share this award!
