This year's Tony Awards wasn't afraid to get political.

We can't say we're shocked to report this as the award show's host Kevin Spacey is pretty familiar with the world of political corruption as he plays Frank Underwood in the celebrated Netflix series House Of Cards. While the musical performances and the inspiring acceptance speeches were the stars of the evening, some of the political moments at the Tonys stole the spotlight.

Not only did Spacey enlist Robin Wright's help to bring their HoC characters to life on stage, but the A-lister also dressed as Bill Clinton and made some email related jabs at Hillary Clinton's expense. Oh, and you don't want to miss Stephen Colbert's latest mocking of Donald Trump!

Joe Biden was also in the audience at the Tonys as his wife, Jill Biden, introduced the cast of Bandstand for their musical performance. Unsurprisingly, the former second lady got a standing ovation during her appearance.

Catch the political highlights from this year's Tony Awards (below). Enjoy!

Feud Alert! Patti LuPone Calls Madonna A 'Movie Killer' & Thinks Her Evita Performance Was 'A Piece Of Shit'!

Most of Andy Cohen's guests tip-toe around how they truly feel about other celebs — Patti LuPone, however, does not give a fuck!

The Broadway legend stopped by Watch What Happens Live! on Tuesday and admitted she can't sit through the big screen adaptations of musicals she starred in on stage.

But that might be a good thing, because the diva is NOT easily impressed by Hollywood interpretations of those hit musicals!

That especially goes for Madonna's portrayal of LuPone's iconic role in Andrew Lloyd Weber's Evita, a performance the Tony Awards winner thought was "a piece of shit."

The musical, for which LuPone won a Tony, was adapted into a hit film in 1996. Madge won a Golden Globe for her performance, but Patti wouldn't be able to tell you why — as she called the Like a Virgin singer a "movie killer" who is "dead behind the eyes." Ouch!

She sneered:

Let's face it, prequels always suck. So we weren't too interested in the Big Bang Theory spinoff Sheldon.

That is, until we learned CBS's frontrunner to play the young Sheldon Cooper was none other than our favorite little Tony Awards red carpet correspondent, Iain Armitage!

The rising star will reportedly take over the role from Jim Parsons, who won FOUR Emmys playing the neurotic math genius.

We're also seeing that the network is looking at Zoe Perry to play Sheldon's mom! Since Zoe is the daughter of Laurie Metcalf, who plays Mary Cooper on the hit sitcom, it seems like a perfect fit to us!

But we're just so happy for Iain!

Of course, no matter how big he gets, he'll always be our man at the Tonys! See some of his classic red carpet celebrity interviews (below)!
