As previously reported, the 85th annual ceremony will present special honorary awards to current Kiss Me, Kate star Kelli O'Hara, Beeltejuice director Alex Timbers, and Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus playwright Taylor Mac.

The awards are among the oldest theatrical honors in America, having been first presented in 1922 and subsequently formalized in 1935. The ceremony culminates in the presentation of the aforementioned Distinguished Performance Award, which goes to one artist a year and can only be won once in an artist’s lifetime. Recent winners have included Glenda Jackson for Three Tall Women, Ben Platt for Dear Evan Hansen, and Lin-Manuel Miranda for Hamilton.
