    As many of you know, Robert Lopez (co-writer of Frozen’s “Let It Go”) has the opportunity to become the latest member of the exclusive Emmy/Grammy/Oscar/Tony club. If he does win the Oscar for Best Original Song in a few weeks, he would the 12th (and fastest!) person to win the EGOT. Which got me to thinking, of all the previous EGOT winners, which performer’s is tally do YOU think is the most impressive? Just a general discussion of course, as there is no definitive answer. I’ve compiled a list of the winners below:

    -Richard Rodgers
    -Helen Hayes
    -Rita Moreno
    -John Gielgud
    -Audrey Hepburn
    -Marvin Hamlisch
    -Jonathon Tunick
    -Mel Brooks
    -Mike Nichols
    -Whoopi Goldberg
    -Scott Rudin

    I’ve got to say Rita Moreno. One of the most talented musical actresses ever.

    Scott Rudin is the one more surprinsing. He is not an actor. He is not a singer. But he still manage to get all of them.
    If Eikho Ishioda would have won that tony, that will be super considering that she was a costume designer, she managed to get a Grammy.

    About the list, all the women there are great imho.

    Mike Nichols’ awards are pretty damn impressive for a director.  I wouldn’t rank him as a great film director, but the well-rounded acclaim, top awards for film, television, and dramatic productions.

    For acting, Helen Hayes…the top Oscar, top Emmy, and top Tony.

    Besides Nichols and Hayes (non-honorary EGOTs), I would say Barbra Streisand.  Her awards haul is enormously impressive, probably the most impressive of all:  The highest Oscar for leading role, the Album of the Year, the Song of the Year Grammys, four Emmys, Kennedy Center too.

    Audrey wins everything, she wins life, she wins the world.

    Liza Minnelli.

    And if you ever want to know how amazing Rita Moreno is, just ask her yourself. She’ll tell you all about it. Pretty pompous for someone who had her singing voice dubbed in West Side Story.

    One I see on her way to having a super-deserved-slash-“impressive” EGOT is Jennifer Hudson: An Oscar for Acting and a Grammy for an actual album. She’s done television work (guest stint on Smash) and it’s only a matter of time before she performs on Broadway. Not bad for an American Idol castoff, who’s already won the hardest two to get. 

    Sidenote: I keep waiting for Frances McDormand and Marcia Gay Harden to get Emmys. Just so they have all three acting accolades.

    Well, for a person who comes from an minority, she deserves all the price.
    Her emmys were well deserved… “Fever” was great and anytime i feel blue, i just checked on youtube.
    Her tony speech was also great, she was really upset that they considered herself as supporting.

    She might sound a bit pedantish when you heared her, but hey, her life was not easy… she had to fight to be considered more than a “juanita” or “lupita” and something more.

    Unless the person is a music artist with critical and/or commercial success, I don’t see the Grammy win as noteworthy (I don’t deem Grammys noteworthy anyway). They will normally reward stars, and (I assume) wining one in any category, like Spoken Word album, will do yes? 
    It should really be “EOT”.
