tonys 2014 neil patrick harris bryan cranston cbs gi Tony Awards 2014: Neil Patrick Harris and Bryan Cranston win for 'Hedwig' and 'All the Way'

TV stars dominated parts of the 2014 Tony Awards, with both Neil Patrick Harris and Bryan Cranston winning Lead Actor honors for “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” and “All the Way,” respectively.

Cranston got his Tony first, picking up his first theater award for playing President Lyndon B. Johnson in “All the Way.” He noted his theater experience was sort of limited — his first live production was the second act of “Hair.”

Harris’ award came much later in the ceremony — after an electrifying performance with the “Hedwig” cast and a trip through the audience (including a kiss for David Burtka).

“I share this with you … But not really,” Harris told his “Hedwig” band, later noting that it was his parents’ anniversary.

Despite these big wins for theatrical work, both Harris and Cranston remain better-known for their TV performances. In addition to his Emmy-winning “Breaking Bad” work, Cranston also starred in “Malcolm in the Middle.” Harris, meanwhile, just finished “How I Met Your Mother” years after leaping to fame in “Doogie Howser MD.”
