Transcript for Bette Midler steals the show with Tonys acceptance speech
last night. What an evening, Kevin spacey getting great reviews as the host. He was terrific. And best lead actor in a musical Ben Platt from "Dear Evan Hansen" making the crowd cry with his emotional speech. And a huge night for John legend who won as a producer for "Jitney." This means he is just an "E" away from becoming an egot, the grammy, Oscar, Tony, just needs that Emmy. Congratulations to you, John legend, it was Bette midler would stole the show winning for "Hello, dolly!." Her first Tony ever. That's surprising. I know. I was surprised to hear that because she just is magnificent. And not afraid to shush the orchestra when they tried to play her off the stage. Take a look in and I just want to say -- I just want to say -- I just want to say -- revival -- shut the Up. I just want to say. I just want to say -- Even she didn't get enough time and continued her thank-yous, backstage in the press room and emdz R ended them by shouting Bette midler for president. That's her first one which surprised all of us. She wasn't letting the moment go by in nor can she. Can't put a limit on gratitude. Scary close call for Jennifer Lawrence over the weekend. The Louisville, Kentucky, native was flying from her hometown to teterboro airport nearby when one of the engines failed at 31,000 feet then during the emergency descent the second engine failed. Thankfully the plane was able to land safely in Buffalo, new York, that's quite a diversion. Emergency vehicles on the tarmac as she left the plane uninjured but I have got to believe very shaken up. Both engines in. Yeah, who knows why but thankfully she's fine, her reps say the FAA is investigating.
