2005 Tony Award Winners -- iVillage

The 59th Annual Tony Awards, hosted by Hugh Jackman for the third time in a row, were broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City on June 5, 2005. The lifetime achievement award was presented by Sally Field to Edward Albee. Other Tony highlights? Billy Crystal poking fun at Tom Cruise's recent antics by thrusting his arms in the air and exclaiming, "I'm in love with Katie Holmes!" Also of note, Billy Crudup and Claire Danes made their first public appearance together after dating for nearly two years. Here are the evening's winners...
