Angela Lansbury’s Favorite Musical Moments


Angela Lansbury, who died Tuesday (Oct. 11) at the age of 96, never had a Billboard Hot 100 hit and never personally received a Grammy nomination. But, in a long string of Broadway and movie hits, she introduced many songs that are widely known and loved. Among them is the title song from the 1991 Disney film of the same name, “Beauty and the Beast,” which won an Oscar for best original song and a Grammy for song of the year.


Lansbury received career-ending honorary awards from three of the four EGOT award ceremonies. She was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame in 1996, received an honorary award from the Motion Picture Academy in 2013, and was recently honoured with a special Tony Award for lifetime achievement. (There’s nothing like a close call, Tonys!)

Lansbury won four Tony Awards for best actress in a musical, which remains a record in that category, edging out fellow Broadway legends Mary Martin and Gwen Verdon, who each won three. Lansbury was honoured for her roles in Mame, Dear World, Gypsy, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Lansbury was also nominated for an Emmy in 1985 for outstanding individual performance in a variety or music programme for a performance of Sweeney Todd on PBS’ Great Performances.
The original cast albums of Mame and Sweeney Todd both won Grammys for best musical theatre album. Jerry Herman, the composer/lyricist for Mame, received the award. Sweeney Todd’s composer/lyricist, Stephen Sondheim, and album producer Thomas Z. Shepard received the award. Lansbury’s other cast albums, for revivals of The King and I (1978) and A Little Night Music (2010), were both nominated for Grammys in that category.
Several of Lansbury’s soundtracks and cast albums charted on the Billboard 200. Beauty and the Beast, which peaked at No. 19 in 1992, Mame, which peaked at No. 23 in 1966, Sweeney Todd, which peaked at No. 78 in 1979, and Dear World, which peaked at No. 128 in 1969.
Lansbury was also a popular host of award shows. She hosted or co-hosted the Tony Awards five times, the most of any host, and the Emmy Awards once (in 1993). Lansbury received an Emmy nomination for the first time she hosted the Tony Awards alone (in 1987). The award was given for exceptional individual performance in a variety or music programme.
Here are a few of Lansbury’s greatest musical moments in her memory.
