"Those were a couple of golden years for me, really they were, on Broadway. Unbelievable. Because I got to be everything I'd never had the chance to be in movies." --Angela Lansbury
Lansbury was named Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year by the Harvard Hasty Pudding Theatricals in 1968.
She was inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame in 1982.
Lansbury has been nominated for 16 Emmy Awards without a win.
She was inducted into the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' Hall of Fame in 1996.
In 1997, Lansbury was presented with the National Medal of Arts by President Bill Clinton.
She underwent hip replacement surgery in 1998.
Lansbury was announced as the star of a new musical, "The Visit", set to premiere on Broadway in 2001. Because of family considerations, however, she was forced to withdraw. The producers reportedly were seeking a replacement for Lansbury (for whom the project was written by Terrence McNally and John Kander & Fred Ebb).
