"Our Broadway family wants to give and say thanks to you, by sharing the stage with you and your classmates", Morrison said.

Garfield won best actor in a play for his acclaimed performance in "Angels in America", which also won Nathan Lane his third Tony, as closeted conservative lawyer Roy Cohn, who died of AIDS.

The "Amazing Spiderman" fame actor honoured the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community, saying: "It is a spirit that says no to oppression. I love the Tony Awards", another wrote. It is a spirit that says we are all made perfectly.

That show also yielded the featured actress win for Rosanne star Laurie Metcalf.

Andrew Garfield poses backstage with his award for Best performance by an actor in a leading role in a play for 'Angels in America'.
