Elaine May Spoils the Ending of Her Play at Tony Awards 2019!

Elaine May accepts her award on stage at the 2019 Tony Awards on Sunday (June 9) at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

The legendary 87-year-old actress won her first-ever acting award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play for her work in The Waverly Gallery.

During her acceptance speech, Elaine totally spoiled the ending of the play!

“And, at the end of the play, I died. Now, my death was described onstage by Lucas Hedges so brilliantly. He described it, so heartbreaking, he was so touching, that watching from the wings, I thought, ‘I’m gonna win this guy’s Tony,’” Elaine May said during her speech.

Lucas was snubbed of a nomination this year.
