Filed under: Broadway BabiesTony Awards


Wow! Two MORE FANTASTIC Tony Award firsts!

And two absolutely gorgeous, touching acceptance speeches!

Steve Kazee just took home the 2012 Best Performance By An Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his incredible work in Once, and in an absolutely heartwrenching and beautiful acceptance speech, thanked his cast and crew for helping him stay strong after the passing of his mother.

Just so incredibly moving.

Directly afterward, James Corden won the Best Performance By An Actor in a Leading Role in a Play for his work in One Man, Two Guvnors, and gave an equally touching, if not entirely different, thank you to his fellow nominees, as well as his fiances!

Ch-ch-check out both speeches (above)!

Ugh!

We're all choked up!

Well-deserved, both you! Congrats!

Another first win this evening, alongside a record-breaking SIXth!

While a lot of the focus of the 2012 Tony Awards goes to the actors for their performances and their respected nominated pieces, the accolade for Best Direction of a Musical went to first-timer John Tiffany for his gorgeous work on Once!

However, right after, Mike Nichols won his sixth award for Best Direction of a Play for his equally brilliant work on the revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman!

Amazing amazing!

Lots of excitement this year!

Well, we think it's safe to say that three of these could sweep this entire year's ceremony!

The 2012 Tony Awards Nominations were announced this morning by Kristin Chenoweth and Jim Parsons, and on top of Bernadette Peters and Hugh Jackman receiving honorary awards - as we reported yesterday - it's clear that there are three big frontrunners this year, as the musical Once managed to garner 11 nods, with Nice Work If You Can Get It and The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess following close behind with 10 each!

Holy shiz! That is seriously impressive!

We can't wait to see how they do when the ceremony airs on June 10th! How about U?!

Ch-ch-check out the full list of nominationsAFTER THE JUMP!
