Video: Highlights from Sunday's Tony Awards - Hugh's hops! Cranston's win!

Tony Awards host extraordinaire Hugh Jackman bounced his way through his opening number Sunday night, stopping only to make small talk with Neil Patrick Harris in an elevator and sing a little diddy at the very end. So yeah, it's official: Hugh is the most talented (and in shape) celebrity there is.

Or maybe it's Harris, who stole Sunday's show with a sexually charged number from Hedwig and the Angry Inch and then went on to win Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical. And all in heels!

Or how about Bryan Cranston, a three-time Emmy winner who's now halfway to an EGOT with his Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play win for his show All the Way, in which he plays Lyndon B. Johnson.

Oh wait, it's got to be Audra McDonald, who won another Tony last night for her performance as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill and made history: She's now the first actress to win six Tonys, and the first person to win in four different performance categories, ever.
