#Oscarssowhite? Clearly, the Great White Way didn't get the message.
"Think of tonight's show as the Oscars, but with diversity," said host James Corden.
And how very cool is that?
Look at the foursome who won Tonys for their stunning performances in musicals.
Cynthia Erivo won her Tony for for lead actress in a musical for "The Color Purple," Daveed Diggs and Renée Elise Goldsberry scored their awards for featured actors in "Hamilton," and Leslie Odom Jr. took home his for lead musical actor, also for "Hamilton."
Goldsberry is a mom first, an actress second.
"If you know anything about me you know I've spent the last 10 years just trying to have children," she said on stage at Sunday's Tony awards, accepting her prize for "Hamilton."
"God gave me Benjamin, he gave me Brielle, and he still gave me this."
Here's what Diggs had to say backstage, per the Los Angeles Times: "Growing up I felt that there was no place for me here. But this place is so inclusive. Not just culturally but in terms of ability, and in terms of age. There is so much diversity on Broadway now. I'm so proud to be a part of it, so happy to see so many kids around."
