Robert De Niro says ‘F--- Trump' onstage at Tonys, gets standing ovation

Andrew Garfield

"The Band's Visit", for which Mr. Stachel won best featured actor at Radio City Music Hall in NY, was perhaps the ideal vehicle to deliver him to fame.

Robert De Niro brought down the house at the 2018 Tony Awards with two words - "F**k Trump!". "Boy, do we need that now!"

For most of the previous awards season, shows like the Oscars and Golden Globes have acknowledged the issue of sexual misconduct and abuse of power.

Bruce Springsteen also treated viewers to a bit of his impossible-to-get-tickets-to show, though Robert De Niro kind of upstaged him with that whole "F-k Trump!" moment.

It was a reminder that co-hosts Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles - talented and likable if not terribly thrilling - face their biggest test yet when they co-host the CBS telecast from the massive 6,000-seat Radio City Music Hall.

Veteran actress Glenda Jackson picked up best actress for her performance in Three Tall Women.

The British-American won best actor for his role in Angels in America, which explores the Aids crisis in the U.S. during the 1980s.

More news: China may become ‘guarantor and mediator’ after Trump-Kim talks

The night's first big victor, Andrew Garfield, best actor in a play for "Angels in America", earned hearty cheers when he declared, "Let's just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked".

While the U.S. censored the expletives, Aussie viewers were gifted the moment in all of its glory and Twitter was set alight.

"I don't care what he likes".

Andrew Garfield on Sunday won a Tony Award for his performance in Broadway's "Angels in America", and shared his thoughts on the recent U.S. Supreme Court Masterpiece Cakeshop decision, while honoring the LGBTQ community.

Most Famous Goat: Once On This Island won best musical revival, meaning that its resident goat is now the most famous goat on Broadway. Stachel looked stunned as he accepted his award, saying that for years, he hid his Middle Eastern background but was now proud to embrace it.

This was Salonga's fourth time on the Tony stage.

De Niro received a mixture of astonished gasps, laughter, and a standing ovation after his short speech, according to Deadline.
