Hugh Jackman will be hosting the Tony Awards for the fourth time on June 8 at 8pm ET on CBS, and unlike the myriad of awards shows that honor the same people for the same media over and over again, the Tonys are unique. The Tonys put the spotlight on Broadway; on casts and crews that work tirelessly, day in and day out for months on the same live show. Check out the live stream of the red carpet arrivals below, as well as some nominee highlights and our huge gallery of the Tony Awards hopefuls, like Neil Patrick Harris, Idina Menzel, and more!
