The show's 23-year-old star Ben Platt was deemed Best Actor in a Musical. It also won the prizes for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for Rachel Bay Jones, Best Score, Best Orchestrations and Best Book of a Musical.

The cast performed the show-stopping song "Waving Through a Window" from the musical earlier in the CBS telecast, which was hosted by Kevin Spacey.

"The things that make you strange are the things that make you powerful," Platt said as he collected his Best Actor award.

The show is about a high school student who suffers from social anxiety disorder exacerbated by the prevalence of social media and the suicide of a classmate.
