Oh, the elusive EGOT. It takes a very special performer to nail down an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and a Tony. The enviable club is a relatively small one, with impressive members like Whoopi Goldberg, Rita Moreno, Audrey Hepburn, and Mel Brooks. But there are a few entertainers that are almost there. Find out who is just one coveted statue away from reaching EGOT status. Some of the contenders might surprise you.
Stage and screen icon Cher picked up a best actress win (she beat Meryl!) for 1987's "Moonstruck," putting her well on her way to EGOT status. Time to star in a Broadway show and land that Tony...
Frances McDormand has nabbed Oscar, Emmy, and Tony gold. It's time to get on that spoken word train and complete the coveted award show quartet.
Hoo-wah! The legendary Pacino has acting accolades galore, but he needs a still Grammy to EGOT it up. Fingers crossed for the next big EDM record? Now that would be a fun surprise.
Christopher Plummer is just one Grammy away from EGOT greatness. I would gladly listen to him narrate anything, so...
Someone give The Divine Miss M an Oscar, STAT.
Cynthia Nixon is just an Oscar away from an EGOT, but she is kinda busy with trying to earn another title these days... Governor of New York.
John Legend is more of a singing superstar than an actor, but he did appear in NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, which garnered his first Emmy nom. He could be in the EGOT club by September 17th!
Julie Andrews needs a Tony of all things -- something tells me she can make that happen.
Speaking of Mary Poppins... If all goes very well with Miranda's performance in this year's upcoming "Mary Poppins Returns," he could get an Oscar nod and another chance at EGOT glory. Better make room on that crowded shelf.
Lily Tomlin probably should have gotten an Oscar for "Big Business" alongside Bette (that mirror scene alone is impeccable!), but she has no Academy Awards to her name. #OscarForTomlin
Viola Davis' voice demands to voice the next great American novel. It's time she gets a Grammy and seals the EGOT deal.
Helen Mirren really wants a Grammy. Give the Dame what she deserves, people.
