    I am working on an item about “The Trip to Bountiful” and Cicely Tyson.

    Your help is needed.

    If she wins for this role, it will have earned an Oscar (Geraldine Page), Tony (Tyson), and Emmy (Tyson).

    What other roles (doesn’t have to be the same performer) have won at the Oscars, Tonys, and Emmys??

    Truman Capote. 

    Robert Morse won a Tony in 1990 and an Emmy in 1992 for portraying him, and Philip Seymour Hoffman of course won the Oscar.

    Yul Brynner won a Tony (1952) and an Oscar (1956) for playing the King of Siam in “The King and I.”

    Olivia de Havilland won an Oscar (1949) and Cherry Jones won a Tony (1995) for playing Catherine Sloper in “The Heiress.”

    Jeffrey Wright won a Tony and an Emmy for playing multiple roles in “Angels in America.” (Ron Leibman won a Tony and Al Pacino won an Emmy playing Roy Cohn in the same vehicle.)

    Surprised that the Jessica Lange fanboys didn’t smell this terrible, terrible omission miles away. She was also Emmy nominated for playing Blanche.

    José Ferrer was very close to winning all three as Cyrano de Bergerac. He won the inaugural Best Actor Tony in 1947 (along with Fredric March in Years Ago), the Best Actor Oscar in 1951 and was nominated for the Best Actor in a Single Performance Emmy in 1956 (losing to Lloyd Nolan as Captain Queeg in The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial, a role that earned Humphrey Bogart a Best Actor Oscar nomination for the film adaptation, which Ferrer also appeared in!).

    And of course, there’s Hamlet, a role which won Laurence Olivier the Best Actor Oscar in 1948, earned Christopher Plummer a 1966 Emmy nomination for a TV production of the play and received 3 Best Actor in a Play Tony nominations: Richard Burton in 1964, Ralph Fiennes in 1995 and Jude Law in 2010, with Fiennes winning.

    Cyrano de Bergerac is also interesting with the fact that besides Ferrer, 3 other actors have played that role to at least nominations in all 3 mediums.  Christopher Plummer won a tony for the musical version, Gerard Depardieu was oscar nominated and Kevin Kline was emmy nominated.

    If there ends up not being one character to have won an award from the 3 awards, further research may come in figuring out the all inclusive work by those emmy nominated actors from the start until the mid 50’s when records only show a name for the best actor & actress categories and soemtimes the variable comedian/comedienne categories.  You never know if a famous character was among any given actor various works on TV in their nominated years.

    Another almost…

    Eleanor of Aquitane in The Lion in WInter. 

    Rosemary Harris won the Tony, Katherine Hepburn the Oscar and Glenn Close was Emmy nominated. 

    (the Jessica Lange “terrible terrible omission” part was a joke by the way)

    The role of Velma Kelley in Chicago….

    Chita Rivera was Tony nominated.  Bebe Neuwirth won the Tony for the revival, and Catherine Zeta Jones won the Oscar. Damn…no Emmy though.

    Has anyone won a Tony for playing Elizabeth I? Judi Dench won the Oscar, Glenda Jackson and Helen Mirren won Emmys.

    Maybe Samuel Barnett can win a Tony this year.
