It's Hollywood meets Broadway, baby!

We love the Tony Awards because the red carpet always seems so much more elegant (or daring, if you're Cate Blanchett)!

Lupita Nyong'o was a clear fave for best dressed, and Sara Bareilles' hair cultivated MAJOR envy, but they weren't the only ones standing out Sunday night…

The 2016 Tony Awards Bashes Donald Trump With 'The Book Of Moron' Parody & Mocks Hillary Clinton With 'The Clinton Line' Spoof!

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPolitikDonald TrumpHillary ClintonTony AwardsHIGHlariousFunny

With such a controversial candidate as Donald Trump, it's no surprise that the 2016 Tony Awards decided to shade the scandalized star!

On Sunday, host James Corden revealed a new (fake) musical all about the Republican presidential hopeful, and it's aptly titled The Book of Moron!

LOLz! We couldn't have picked a better name for a show about the combover king!

The Book of Mormon spoof featured Andrew Rannells as the Donald himself, and his silly song is TOTALLY HIGHlarious!

But, of course, CBS couldn't mock the GOP candidate without taking a jab at the presumptive Democratic nominee as well.

So, the awards show enlisted Glenn Close to portray Hillary Clinton in a spoof of A Chorus Line titled The Clinton Line! Ha!

Ch-ch-check out the funny bit (above)!

The Hamilton Cast Refuses To Use Prop Guns During Their 2016 Tony Awards Performance Following The Orlando Nightclub Tragedy — Watch Here

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesR.I.P.PolitikInspirationSad SadTony AwardsViolence

Following his poignant sonnet, Lin-Manuel Miranda is making another strong statement about the Orlando massacre at this year's Tony Awards.

After two incredible introductions — from President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama and then Common — the Broadway star took the stage alongside his Hamilton castmates to perform a couple big numbers from their hit show.

Following a brief bit from Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story, the talented performers segued into Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down).

But, they shared a moving message during the second song.

While performing the tune about the Battle of Yorktown, the actors refused to use prop guns in the wake of the disastrous shooting at the gay nightclub in Florida that claimed the lives of at least 50 people and injured over 50 more.

The moment the cast stood on the stage, posing without weapons, was an incredibly powerful part of this amazing performance.
