Broadway’s biggest night has finally arrived and boy was it wondrous one!

The Tony Awards were handed out Sunday night, much to the delight of theater fans everywhere. The awards honor the best of the best during the 2017-2018 Broadways season. The show itself was hosted by Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles, who spent the evening singing to the audience at every turn.

Before the kudocast was underweight, much of the talk surrounding the show was about how many awards were Angels in America and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child going to walk away with by the end of the show. Both plays racked up quite the number of nominations and are the front-runners to dominate in all categories.

How many of those nods did those widely popular plays claim victory to?

Check out the list of winners below to see if your faves went home with all the glory!
