The best part of 68th annual Tony Awards was not Hugh Jackman's bouncy introduction nor Jonathan Groff's sly tribute to John Travolta's Oscar gaffe, but Bobby Cannavale. The actor, who was a nominee at the 65th annual Tony Awards for Best Actor in a Play, live-tweeted the event from the comfort of his own social media account and uncorked a string of zingers that should have him on the short list to host the 2015 Tony Awards ceremony (in our mind). Ahead, what it was like to watch Sunday night's Tonys ceremony through the Twitter feed of Bobby Cannavale. (Check out a full list of Tony Award winners here.)
He wanted shorter speeches.
Saw Twelfe Night twice. Amazing. Real Deal Rylance. Still. Start the music.
I like that Jessie Mueller. Great story. Great talent. #TonyAwards
(music) (Still love her)
He wrote what we all thought when Emmy Rossum introduced a performance from "Les Miserables" ...
ANYBODY left who DOESNT know what the fuck Le Miz is about?
... and came up with a new title for "One Day More."
Song should be called "LOOK HOW LOUD I CAN SING"
He didn't believe "Aladdin" star James Monroe Iglehart was a real genie ...
That guy ain't a genie. #TonyAwards
... even after he won the Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical.
still say that guy ain't no genie. #TonyAwards
He wasn't impressed with the "Rocky" musical ...
great acting going on here, huh guys? #TonyAwards
... nor "A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder."
what the FUCK is happening??? #TonyAwards
He had jokes about Sting ...
someone call THE POLICE. KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
... and thoughts about the 10th anniversary "Wicked" performance.
What year is it?
My buddy just now while watching the Tonys: "I fucked 2 Elphabas" #TonyAwards
He loved "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" ...
... but not Hugh Jackman's constant singing.
KEEP SINGIN, HUGH!!! WHATEVER YOU DO, DONT STOP SINGING!!!!!! #TonyAwards
And in the end, he decided the entire show was probably not worth all that trouble?
This is why "some people" wanna "kill us".
But at least he won some fans.
