Garfield won best actor in a play for his acclaimed performance in the Angels In America revival, a monumental two-part drama about AIDS during the Reagan years.

Nathan Lane, the longtime Broadway star who played the famously caustic dramatic role of Roy Cohn in "Angels", took home a Tony for best featured actor in a play. "Mean Girls" won nothing and "SpongeBob SquarePants" got only one for best set design.
