Accepting the kudo, the 55-year-old actor shared, “My mother always said man gives you the award and God gives you the reward. I guess I got both tonight.” He went on to thank his longtime wife Paulette who was among the audience, and his children at home.

Denzel’s win brought the Tonys’ collection of “Fences” to three in total. Although nominated for 10 nods for the 61st Annual Tony Awards, the revival of August Wilson’s play only managed to land Best revival of a play as well as Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play for Denzel’s co-star Viola Davis.
