The Tony Awards are for US theatre performances
Specifically, Broadway; they don't recognize Off-Broadway (which has the Obies). They do, however, give an annual nod to regional theatres of distinction...or at least longevity.
Nor are the Oscars specifically acting awards; like the Tonys, they recognize a variety of disciplines.
In New York there are the Bessies, which recognize various aspects of dance, including choreography and lighting design.
