    Has anybody ever won multiple of the big-4 awards (Oscar, Tony, Emmy, Grammy) for the same role. Think of a scenario in which a play becomes a movie, or vice versa. I feel like I should already know this, but I don’t. Some help would be nice.

    Lila Kedrova for Zorba the Greek also won an Oscar and then a Tony for the same role.
    Jose Ferrer for Cyrano, too.

    Didn’t Judy Holiday win the Tony as well for Born Yesterday?

    The Tonys didn’t exist yet when Judy Holliday played Born Yesterday (but she did win a Tony later for Bells are Ringing, triumphing over Julie Andrews in My Fair Lady). People who won both awards for the same role are:

    Eight performers have won the Tony and later the Oscar for the same role: José Ferrer in Cyrano de Bergerac (Tony: 1947/Oscar: 1950), Shirley Booth in Come Back, Little Sheba (1950/1953), Yul Brynner in The King and I (1952/1956), Rex Harrison in My Fair Lady (1957/1964), Anne Bancroft in The Miracle Worker (1960/1962), Paul Scofield in A Man for All Seasons (1962/1966), Jack Albertson in The Subject Was Roses (1965/1968) and Joel Grey in Cabaret (1967/1973). Lila Kedrova did it the other way around. She won an Oscar for Zorba the Greek, and 20 years later won a Tony for the same role in Zorba (1964 Oscar/1984 Tony).

    Thanks! I thought Holliday was a Tony winner.. How have I never learned this about Lila Kedrova?! Of course I’ve seen the film and loved her performance in it..

    Jose Ferrer not only won a Tony and an Oscar for CYRANO DE BERGERAC, but was nominated for an Emmy for a 1955 television version.  Ferrer was also nominated for an Emmy for the 1950 television year…that year there were no specific programs listed with his nomination. IMDB has no televeion credits for him in 1950, but does have some listed for 1949, in which he also did a television version of CYRANO DE BERGERAC.

    Jeffrey Wright won a Tony for “Angels in America: Perestroika” and an Emmy for “Angels in America”.

    Patty Duke didn’t win two awards for the same role, but she did something really interesting. She won an Oscar as a child for “The Miracle Worker” and later won an Emmy as an adult for the tv adaptation of “The Miracle Worker” where she played the role that won Anne Bancroft the Oscar in the original version.
