Angela Lansbury Angela Lansbury

Angela Lansbury will get the chance to make Tony Award history as she goes for her record sixth trophy next month.

On Tuesday, the actress earned a featured actress in a musical nomination — her seventh overall — for her role as Madame Armfeldt in the revival of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music. The former Murder, She Wrote star, who's been 0-for-18 at the Emmys, tied Julie Harris last year as the winningest Tony performer when she picked up featured actress in a play for Blithe Spirit.
