Lansbury Set To Tie Tony Awards Record

Awww YAY go Angie *fingers crossed*

Murder, She Wrote star Angela Lansbury will make Tony Awards history if she lands a Best Featured Actress prize – she’ll tie with Julie Harris for the most acting awards.

Lansbury, who has hosted the U.S. theatre awards more than anyone else, is nominated as a Best Featured Actress in A Play for her role in Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit.

Awards news website GoldDerby.com notes Lansbury has already won four Best Lead Actress in A Musical honours – for Mame, Dear World, Gypsy and Sweeney Todd – and a fifth win would tie Harris’ feat.

The Tonys will be handed out on 7 June at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The nominations were announced early on Tuesday.
