The 2015 Tony Awards took place Sunday night at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
But in case you didn’t catch the telecast, here’s a rundown of the moments that most captured the internet’s attention.
Business Insider partnered with Amobee Brand Intelligence — a company that provides marketing insight and measures real-time content consumption across the internet — and Prime Visibility, a digital marketing agency with the tools to measure social media mentions, in order to bring you the most popular moments of the awards show.
While Amobee found that much of the internet’s attention when to Sunday’s big winners, including best play “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” best play revival “Skylight,” best musical “Fun Home,” and best musical revival “The King and I,” it’s important to point out that those who didn’t win also broke through.
At the young age of 11 years old, Sydney Lucas from “Fun Home” generated 3,213 tweets with her touching performance, despite losing in her category. And 82-year-old Chita Rivera also went home empty handed, but was mentioned in 1,773 around her performance from “The Visit.” There was also 1,692 Tweets around Bradley Cooper who lost for “The Elephant Man.” Although he didn’t perform, the movie star has name recognition and some wondered if he had been snubbed.
Here are the moments that were most socialed from the Tonys, according to Prime Visibility:
1.) “Fun Home” winning best musical.
“Fun Home” is based on the complicated childhood relationship between lesbian writer Alison Bechdel and her father. It also doesn’t hurt that “Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David and star Jason Alexander presented the award.
2.) The opening number
Chenoweth and Cumming are adorable in their sing-song-y intro to the night’s festivities and its nominees.
3.) “Fun Home” star Sydney Lucas performs “Ring Of Keys.”
The first Broadway musical with a lesbian protagonist, “Fun Home” centres in on love at first sight in this song.
4.) Ruthie Ann Miles wins featured actress in a musical for “The King and I.”
While reading her acceptance speech on her iPhone, the actress reminds the audience to “please recycle.”
5.) “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” winning best new play
A London import, “Curious Incident” follows the travails of a young man with Asperger’s syndrome who’s accused of killing a dog and looks to clear his name.
