bryan cranston egotNewly-crowned Tony winner Bryan Cranston, who scooped up the Best Actor in a Play trophy Sunday night for his portrayal of Lyndon B. Johnson in "All the Way," may be reveling in his recent victory, but the actor now has another goal in sight: the EGOT.

By adding the Tony statuette to his awards collection -- which also includes three Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series from his days on "Breaking Bad" -- Cranston now only has to clinch two more trophies to earn the title of EGOT, a.k.a. someone who's won the entertainment industry's four most prestigious awards: an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.

The most recent person to join the exclusive club -- which currently only has 12 members -- was composer Robert Lopez, who won his final EGOT component, the Oscar, this year for writing "Let It Go," the Best Original Song from hit animated musical "Frozen." (He shared the award with his wife and co-writer, Kristen Anderson-Lopez.) Lopez also holds the distinction of being the youngest person to earn EGOT status, and did so in the fastest time, snagging all four statuettes in only 10 years.

While Cranston probably won't beat Lopez to that last record, he could still earn the other two trophies if he puts his mind to it. Maybe he can narrate an audio book to win a Grammy? He's been in a bunch of movies recently; can he land a part in a prestigious enough film to earn recognition from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences?

Only time will tell. But we're pulling for the onetime Walter White.
