Taylor Swift is the latest person on a quest for EGOT glory, after she won an Emmy in the creative arts category for her video, "Blank Space." Here's the details, according to The Hollywood Reporter:
Apparently, Swift herself was unaware of the honor, having been asleep when the award was announced. She said on Twitter that she didn't know she'd nabbed the statuette until she saw THR's own tweet about the news, and initially thought it was a prank. (Insert your own Taylor-Swift-"surprised"-face joke here.)
Swift nabbed an Emmy for original interactive program for her AMEX Unstaged: Taylor Swift Experience. The singer starred in and has an executive producer credit on the project, which debuted with the release of her "Blank Space" music video in 2014.
Shot with a 360-degree camera, the program allowed Swift fans to explore the sets of the elaborate Joseph Kahn-directed video for the second single off of her 1989 album.
While Swift celebrates her newly-minted "Emmy winner" status -- in addition to all her past Grammy wins -- we're already dreaming of the ways she can snag the last two trophies. Vulture suggests she can contribute an original song to the next "Mockingjay" soundtrack for Oscar contention, but we think Swift wouldn't truly be satisfied with an Academy Award win for anything other than acting. (Again, insert a Taylor-Swift-"surprised"-face joke.)
@THR 1. Wakes up 2. Reads this 3. Thinks it's a prank 4. Calls everyone to check 5. It's real 6. 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) September 10, 2015
Perhaps she can land a Jennifer Hudson-style part that will flex both her pipes and her acting muscles (and maybe originate the role in a Tony-winning Broadway production)? We're sure Swift's thought of this scenario a time or two in her wildest dreams, and we expect her to make an aggressive play for an EGOT.
