Hillary Clinton Makes Appearance At Awards Show

Hillary Clinton cracked an awkward joke about her 2016 election loss on Sunday night during a surprise appearance at the 2024 Tony Awards. The event took place at the Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater in New York City, where Clinton was met with fawning applause and a standing ovation from nearly the entire A-list crowd.

Clinton was there to present a performance from the musical “Suffs,” a Broadway show about the movement to give women the right to vote, which counts the former Secretary of State and First Lady as a producer. As she began her introduction, she attempted to nod at her now eight-year-old electoral failure, a loss she recently attributed to women voters abandoning her.

“I have stood on a lot of stages, but this is very special,” Clinton said. “I know a little bit about how hard it is to make change.” This self-referential joke drew laughter from many in the audience who had stood for Clinton earlier.

Give me a break.

The night also featured major wins for other celebrities. Angelina Jolie, joined on stage by her 15-year-old daughter Vivienne, was the biggest winner of the night. The musical she produced, “The Outsiders,” earned top honors, including Best Musical. Jolie and Vivienne applauded proudly as fellow producer Matthew Rego accepted the final award with an inspiring acceptance speech.

“The Outsiders” received 12 nominations and won four, including Best Direction of a Musical for Dayna Taymor, Best Sound Design of a Musical for Cody Spencer, and Best Lighting Design of a Musical for Brian MacDevitt and Hana S. Kim.

Other notable winners included Sarah Paulson, who earned Best Actress in a Play for “Appropriate,” Daniel Radcliffe, who took home Best Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical for “Merrily We Roll Along,” and Jeremy Strong, who triumphed in the Best Actor in a Play category for “An Enemy Of The People.” These were all first-time Tony wins for the actors.
