Did the winner of the 2012 Tony Award for Best Performance By An Actress in a Leading Role in a Play just hit on her presenter, Christopher Plummer?!
Which is exactly what happened when Nina Arianda took home her first Tony for Her work in Venus in Fur!
However, when Audra McDonald was called to the stage to accept her Award for Best Performance By An Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical for Porgy & Bess, her acceptance speech was slightly more emotional, as she thanked the Theatre for helping her find her place as young person, and how grateful she is for her family and children!
So incredibly touching!
Ch-ch-check out both speeches (above)!
We are LOVING all of these first-time wins!
Congrats, you guys!
