Bette Midler did indeed win Best Actress in a Musical for “Hello, Dolly!” She wore a slinky blue/green sequin dress and gave a long, heartfelt speech. Glenn Close presented her the award.
However, I feel awful for Josh Groban, Laura Linney, and everyone involved with “Natasha, Pierre…” They had 12 Tony nominations and only received one win…Very depressing…but congratulations to Michael Aranov!!!!! I knew you could do it, Michael!!!!
