Here's what's being talked about in pop culture:

• The big winners at the Tony Awards were the musical "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" and the LBJ play "All the Way." Top acting honors went to Bryan Cranston, Audra McDonald, Neil Patrick Harris and relative unknown Jessie Mueller. But all anyone is talking about is how Harris, doing a song from "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," gave Sting a lapdance. [CBS News, Vulture]

• The teen romance "The Fault in Our Stars" won the weekend box-office race, taking in $48.2 million. The Tom Cruise action movie "Edge of Tomorrow," opened soft with $29.1 million, for third place. [Box Office Mojo]

• Marvel has picked Peyton Reed ("Bring It On," "The Break-Up") to direct "Ant-Man," and Adam McKay ("Anchorman") to rewrite the script. These moves come after the original director, Edgar Wright, ankled (as they say) over creative differences. [Entertainment Weekly]
