Tony Awards 2010: Scarlett Johansson wins Best Performance by a Featured Actress

The 2010 Tony Awards has just been presented Sunday night, June 13, at the
Radio City Music Hall in New York.

And among the surprise victories (just a minor surprise) in the Tony Awards 2010 was Scarlett
Johansson winning Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for "A View From The Bridge". She was actually not predicted to win by many but she did win her first ever Tony Award.

It was a tough fight for the Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play as 5 bigtime Hollywood celebs battled for the award, the likes of Jude Law, Alfred Molina, Liev Schreiber, Christopher Walken and the winner, Denzel Washington.

Catherine Zeta-Jones easily edged out competition in the Lead Actress for a Musical category.

The play "Red" scored the most awards with 5, followed by the musical "Memphis" with 4 while "Fences", "La Cage aux Folles" and "Fela!" each had 3 awards.
