'Book of Mormon' Wins Big At The Tony Awards

The profane and hysterical "The Book of Mormon" took home nine Tony Awards on Sunday including the prize for best musical.

It's a considerable achievement for a pair of first-time Broadway playwrights known more for their raunchy cartoons featuring potty-mouthed kids.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone are creators of the Emmy Award-winning "South Park."

"War Horse" -- a World War I tale about horses told with puppets and actors -- won five Tonys.

Mark Rylance won the best acting award for a play for Jez Butterworth's "Jerusalem."

Norbert Leo Butz won for best actor in a musical for "Catch Me If You Can." Sutton Foster won for best actress in a musical for "Anything Goes."

Frances McDormand was declared the best leading actress in a play for "Good People."
