    The title says it all. Discuss.

    Two words: Ellen Barkin.

    Michael Jeter – one of the best on any awards show.

    Tom Murphy slipping in some naughty words that apparently didn’t draw any attention from the FCC because they were said with an Irish accent.

    Mark Rylance’s first one was good.  By the second time it was old.

    Strangest:  John Napier winning for Les Miserables and openly questioning why he wasn’t nominated for Starlight Express.

    In the last few years, Michele Pawk and Geoffrey Rush each had particularly memorable sound bytes in their speeches:

    Pawk: “I have never been prouder to be a member of this community… Men kissing other men, drag queens, children! It’s a perfect world!”

    Rush: “French existentialist absurdist tragicomedy rocks.”     

    And Michael Jeter probably wins for all-time best Tony speech…

    Definitely Michael Jeter….and it only helped that he won for a truly lovely performance.

    Michael Jeter, Steve Kazee, Nikki M James.

    I think the strangest goes to Frances McDormand and Alice Ripley. Just so…. odd.

    In recent years:

    Steve Kazee, Once (Just straight from the heart.)
    Nikki M. James, Book of Mormon (Team Bumblebee’s for the win!)
    Mark Rylance, Jerusalem (The man is crazy, but a genius)
    Alice Ripley, Next to Normal (I know the majority of it was her screaming a JFK quote, but it suited her personality.)

    Michael Jeter
    Sutton Foster (The second one–The bit about her dresser was hysterical)
    Marc Shaiman and Scott Whittman
    Steve Kazee
    Lin Manuel Miranda
    The Best Actress in a Musical winners’ speeches for the past few years have all been mildly insane.. and I LOVE it! 

    The Tonys are so great because the winners are often big messes up on that stage.  They’re less polished than Hollywood actors at the Oscars.  They really wear their emotions on their sleeves.

    Strangest/Most Insane: Alice Ripley, by a mile. Obsessed with her.

    Most Tear Inducing/Beautiful: Steve Kazee, can still make me weep a dozen youtube watches later.
