“Hon­oured to host the #TonyAwards2017... Fin­gers crossed all the en­velopes are in or­der,” Spacey tweeted, hint­ing at the award mix-up at the Os­cars, ear­lier this year.

The nom­i­na­tions for the Tony Awards will be an­nounced on May 2, and the event will take place in Los Angeles on June 11. “I was their sec­ond choice for Usual Sus­pects, fourth choice for Amer­i­can Beauty and 15th choice to host this year’s Tony Awards. My ca­reer is def­i­nitely go­ing in the right di­rec­tion,” Spacey joked in a press re­lease.

The 57-year-old won his Tony in 1991, as a fea­tured ac­tor in Lost in Yonkers. He has ap­peared in six Broad­way pro­duc­tions, in­clud­ing the 2007 re­vival of A Moon for the Mis­be­got­ten.
