Actor Denzel Washington (still one of the finest men around) picked up his first Tony for Best Actor in a play. Denzel was very humble in accepting the honor.

 Viola Davis also took home a Tony Award for Best Actress for “Fences” and the play itself won a Tony for Best Revival of a Play. Kenny Leon did not win for Best Director although he said he was glad that the play won its award as a tribute to the great August Wilson.

(Kenny you will always be a winner in my book!)
