Bobby Cannavale Live Tweeted The Tony Awards And It Ruled

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.

He wrote what we all thought when Emmy Rossum introduced a performance from "Les Miserables" ...

... and came up with a new title for "One Day More."

He didn't believe "Aladdin" star James Monroe Iglehart was a real genie ...

... even after he won the Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical.

He wasn't impressed with the "Rocky" musical ...

... nor "A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder."

He had jokes about Sting ...

... and thoughts about the 10th anniversary "Wicked" performance.

He loved "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" ...

... but not Hugh Jackman's constant singing.

And in the end, he decided the entire show was probably not worth all that trouble?

But at least he won some fans.
