If you saw or missed last night’s 2012 Tony Awards presentation on CBS hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, one of the greatest actresses ever to appear in daytime, and who has two Daytime Emmys to show for it, just added a prestigious Tony Award to her mantel! Of course, we are talking about Judith Light!
Light who everyone remembers as Karen Wolek from One Life to Live and later, Who’s the Boss? fame on primetime, and myriad of stage plays ,and amazing motion pictures for television performances, and her unwavering support and work for the LGBT community, picked up her first Tony Award for her role in Other Desert Cities.
In her Tony award winning role Light played a dipsomaniac aunt in Jon Robin Baitz’s comedy about a wealthy Palm Springs family facing a series of domestic crises. Judith was also nominated for a Tony last year for her role in “Lombardi.”
Now after the jump, watch the incredibly thrilling moment as Judith accepts her Tony, and listen to what she had to say!
Congrats from On-Air On-Soaps to Judith! Bravo!
