The Tony Awards were handed out and Audra McDonald made Broadway history winning her sixth Tony for her portrayal of Billie Holiday in "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill." The win - best actress in a play - made McDonald the first person ever to win a Tony in all four acting categories. "A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder," took home the prize for top musical, while best play went to "All the Way," whose star Bryan Cranston also took home a best acting prize. The other big win of the night went to Neil Patrick Harris, who nabbed best actor in a musical for his much acclaimed role in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." Sandra Bullock has reportedly obtained an emergency protective order, following a break in to her Los Angeles home, this according to TMZ. Bullock called police to report a break-in on Sunday morning (June 08). The man was arrested and held on 50,000 dollar bail. Police said the actress was "unharmed." No word yet on if the man was a burglar or was stalking the actress. Finally, Rik Mayall has died. The British actor and comedian was best known for his appearances in various BBC TV shows and for the cult classic film "Drop Dead Fred." No cause of death has been announced yet. He was 56.
