Best awkward moment from the Tony Awards: Sean Hayes Kissing Kristen Chenoweth (video)

Not since Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley has there been a more uncomfortable moment at an awards ceremony.

In response to a controversial article in Newsweek back in April asserting that while straight actors like Tom Hanks and Jake Gyllenhaal can play gay characters, gay actors like Sean Hayes and Niel Patrick Harris can't convincingly play straight roles. The article goes on the critique Hayes' role in the revival of the musical "Promises Promises", saying essentially that he still carries the baggage from his long-running role on "Will and Grace" as "queeny Jack".  

The article is definitely biased and anti-gay, but this clip from last night's Tony Awards (full list of winners here), which Hayes hosted, really doesn't do much to disprove the argument.
