The Tony Awards celebrated the best of Broadway on Sunday night.

Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles, who co-hosted the awards show, kicked things off with a piano duet in which they poked fun at the fact that neither of them have won Tony or Grammy Awards.

"Neither one of us has ever won anything. So this is for the people who lose," the hosts sang.

Both have made their Broadway debuts, Groban in 2016's "Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812," and Bareilles in 2017's "Waitress."

Andrew Garfield gave a passionate speech while accepting the award for lead actor in a play for his work in "Angels in America. He referenced a recent Supreme Court decision relating to a Colorado baker to who declined to make a cake for a same-sex wedding.

"We are all sacred and we all belong," Garfield said. "So, let's just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked."

Bruce Springsteen won a special Tony Award for his sold-out Broadway show, "Springsteen on Broadway." He also performed "My Hometown" later in the night.

Actor Robert DeNiro caused a stir while introducing Springsteen's performance. The actor cursed twice saying, "f**k Trump." He received a standing ovation.

"First, I wanna say, 'f**k Trump.' It's no longer 'Down with Trump,' it's 'f**k Trump.'"

Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and Broadway star, Chita Rivera both received lifetime achievement awards.

An emotional moment came when the drama students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas sang "Seasons of Love" from the Broadway musical "Rent."
