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!

This guy could NOT keep it together!
Not that we blame him! Winning the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play is a pretty MASSIVE accomplishment!
Jim Parsons was the lucky man to give that accolade to Clybourne Park and its author, Bruce Norris, who beat out Other Desert Cities, Peter and the Starcatcher, and Venus in Fur!
Such a heartfelt, touching acceptance speech!
Congratulations to everyone involved!
A well-deserved win!

We say this often about Christie Brinkley, but we have to say it again… she looks amazing!!!
The 57-year-old attended the opening night of the Manhattan Theatre Club production of Venus In Fur at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre in NYC on Tuesday night.
Brinkley looked fierce in her skin-tight red dress with coordinating, sparkling red stilettos.
