2018 TONY AWARDS: Kerry Washington & Nnamdi Make Rare Appearance, Tiffany Haddish Is Pretty In Paisley, T.I. & Son Domani Suit Up!
The 2018 Tony Awards went down last night and several YBF celebs were in attendance to celebrate everyone killing it in Broadway. See flicks of Kerry Washington and her hubby Nnamdi Asomugha, Tiffany Haddish, T.I., his son Domani Harris and more inside…
The stars aligned at the 72nd Annual Tony Awards held at Radio City Music Hall in NYC last night to salute excellence in Broadway theatre. Kerry Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha made a rare appearance when they popped up together at the Tony Awards. We don’t see them together on a red carpet often. However, the Tony Awards may be something special for the couple.
Watch Kerry – dazzling in a plunging neckline silver Versace jumpsuit with a cape – and Nnamdi head inside of the venue below:

Ok, we’re obsessed. This look is everything.
The "Scandal" star and the former NFL player first met after Kerry’s Broadway performance in "Race" back in 2009. The rest is history! They tied the knot in 2013 and then had two kids, Isabelle Amarachi and Caleb Kelechi.
Speaking of Broadway, after wrapping up the finale season of "Scandal," Kerry will be returning to the stage. The NYC native will star in Christopher Demos-Brown’s "American Son," set to start in October. Nice!
LOVE this pantsuit!
She (always) readyyyyy!
Tiffany Haddish came ready to party in a silver paisley printed Michael Kors jumpsuit, hitting the carpet with designer Michael Kors. The Girls Trip actress stopped to hit a few of her signature red carpet poses before heading inside.
She caught up with Tony Award legend LaChanze.
LaChanze was on the scene as she was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical for her role as singer Donna Summer in "Summer: The Donna Summer Musical." Unfortunately, she didn’t win, but she’s still a FAB chick in our book.
It was a special night for one father-son duo!
T.I. and his son Domani Harris were front and center at the 2018 Tony Awards since they both were nominated for an award! Tip and Domani were in the running for Best Original Score for their parents in "Spongebob Squarepants: The Broadway Musical."
The Us or Else rapper couldn’t be happier for his 17-year-old son, writing on Instagram, "Message to my 17 yr old self: Yoooo Tip !!! Will you Just cool out,control your anger/emotions,& manage your impulses???… You will accomplish great things in your life of true meaning that will give you true pleasure & peace. As true as this may be,nothing you do in life will ever bring you the satisfaction that you’ll get from witnessing your children do it sooner than you did. Congratulations son. @domaniharris1"
"Orange Is The New Black" actress Uzo Aduba, who also acts on Broadway, lit up the carpet in a custom canary halter Cristina Ottaviano gown.
Killed it! Come on through yellow.
By the way, a new season of "OITNB" returns to Netflix on July 27th.
"Atlanta" star Brian Tyree Henry is out here working! Outside of bringing his character Paper Boi to life on television, the EMMY nominee also does Broadway work. He’s nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play for his role in "Lobby Hero."
Unfortunately, he lost to Nathan Lane in "Angels in America."
We wonder what these two chopped it up about.
Former winner Cynthia Erivo was all smiles as she made her way down the carpet in a black New York Vintage gown and look hella fab while doing so.
She’s gearing up to play famous abolitionist and warrior Harriet Tubman in an upcoming biopic.
Condla Rashad, daughter of Phylicia Rashad and sports caster Ahmad Rashād, STUNNED in a Carolina Herrera Fall 2018 tangelo paper taffeta gown. She was nominated for Best Leading Actress in a Play (“Saint John”) as Joan of Arc. FUN FACT: She is one of the youngest actresses ever to be nominated in the category.
That hair and this dramatc dress, perfect!
Sucks she didn’t bring home the win. Chick also killed it on this season of "Billions" by the way.
You may remember him as Ghost’s lawyer on "Power," but his name rings bells on the Broadway scene. Brandon Victor Dixon, who played in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s HAMILTON, was all smiles when he hit the carpet to celebrate Broadway.
EMMY nominated actor Titus Burgess brought his partner Pablo Salinas along as his date for the festivities.
Kerry and Uzo hit the stage to present, but it was actor Robert de Niro who stole the show last night. He walked out on stage like a "G" and the first words out of his mouth were "F*ck Trump!" and everyone seemed to agree. Check it below:

After the show…
"Power" star Naturi Naughton and former Tony Award winner Leslie Odom Jr. made their way to the the 2018 Tony Awards Gala held at The Plaza Hotel after the awards ceremony.
If you haven’t heard, "Power" returns for a new season on Sunday, July 1st at 9pm EST on STARZ.
