This year's Tony Awards show was one of the top winners at Sunday’s 65th Annual Creative Arts Emmys.

The 66th annual Tony telecast -- which tied with "Boardwalk Empire" for the second-largest number of Emmys won, with four apiece -- took home honors for special class program; Neil Patrick Harris as host/producer and technical direction. "If I Had Time," the closing number for the Tonys by Adam Schlesinger and David Javerbaum, won the Emmy for original music and lyrics.
