Cicely Tyson had already won the TONY on stage with her remarkable performance on Broadway. Sunday was a mere formality; collection of the award.

Tyson's performance on The Trip to Bountiful was simply peerless and the TONY may have as well been shipped to her personal safe deposit box even before the awards ceremony.

Other actors of color did well this year, with Patina Miller taking Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Pippin; Billy Porter won Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in Kinky Boots; and, Courtney B. Vance was a winner for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in Lucky Guy.
