Bette Midler launched an amusing Twitter tirade against the Tony Awards committee earlier this afternoon when she learned that Priscilla Queen of the Desert: The Musical had not been nominated for Best Musical.
The legendary entertainer is co-producing the showâ€™s Broadway run and has actively promoted it on various high profile American television shows.
In her first tweet, the pop icon quipped: â€œYou know how they always say, â€œit was a pleasure just to be nominatedâ€? We wonâ€™t be saying that. WE LOVE PRISCILLA!â€
That was followed by: â€œI was upset that we werenâ€™t nominated for The Tony but once you lose the Oscar a couple of times â€” youâ€™re prepared. YEA, PRISCILLA!â€
The jokes concluded with this pointed tweet: â€œHey Tony Committee, give me a call. I have something I want you to kiss!â€
It might have missed out on a Tony nod for Best Musical, but Australian actor Tony Sheldon did nab a lead actor nomination.
