Who will join the coveted awards club EGOT next? Could it be Lily Tomlin, Cher, Helen Mirren, Frances McDormand, or another entertainer on the verge? A fascinating new infographic by Spencer Stein (click here for his webpage) not only breaks down the past EGOT champs but takes a look at the projects in the works that might allow someone new to enter a club with just 12 members.
The dozen entertainers to have won at least one Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award is a stellar group: composers Richard Rodgers, Marvin Hamlisch and Robert Lopez, actresses Helen Hayes, Rita Moreno, Audrey Hepburn and Whoopi Goldberg, actor John Gielgud, arranger Jonathan Tunick, producer Scott Rudin, and director/performers Mel Brooks and Mike Nichols.
Many people have three pieces of the puzzle but are one award short. That includes the ladies listed above plus Audra McDonald, Cynthia Nixon, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Matt Stone, Trey Parker, Elton John, Alan Menken, Marc Shaiman, Julie Andrews and more.
And while honorary awards have been bestowed on Harry Belafonte, James Earl Jones, Liza Minnelli, and Barbra Streisand, only competitive victories count towards an EGOT.
