67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Press RoomMove over, Taylor Swift -- there's a new contender for an EGOT in town.

Last night, actress Frances McDormand snagged her first Emmy award, for lead actress in a limited series in HBO's "Olive Kitteridge." Her only previous Emmy nomination came in 1997, for her supporting role in the miniseries "Hidden in America."

With that win, McDormand joined an ever-growing list of entertainers who have the chance the snag the illustrious title of EGOT (someone who's won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony). In addition to that shiny new Emmy, McDormand already has an Oscar on her shelf (for 1996's "Fargo"), as well as a Tony (for 2011's "Good People").

That means that McDormand is only a Grammy win away from EGOT status, and as HitFix notes, she's in good company: Helen Mirren, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Vanessa Redgrave, and Geoffrey Rush also need that "G" to join the EGOT club. Here's hoping one (or all) of them makes it in soon.
