Tony Awards 2020 - Complete List of Winners Announced!

The list of winners from the 2020 Tony Awards has been announced!

It was an unusual year for the Tonys because of the delays from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even though we’re in 2021, this is actually the 2020 Tony Awards because it’s the ceremony delayed from June 2020. The awards show honored the best of Broadway’s 2019-20 season!

Paramount+ streamed the two-hour Tony Awards ceremony starting at 7pm ET and CBS then aired a two-hour primetime special, The Tony Awards Present: Broadway’s Back!, starting at 9pm ET. The primetime special will include performances from beloved classics and the three Best Musical nominees.

22 out of 25 awards were announced during the Paramount+ special and the final three awards of the night will be announced during the CBS special. We’ll update the list when those awards are revealed.
