It’s award season, which means all the rich, beautiful, talented, powerful people in show business are getting together pretty frequently to congratulate each other on being so rich, beautiful, talented, and powerful. Televised ceremonies allow us normal folk to peek in and see the people we love receive honors for their contributions to their craft. And each field has its own top prize – the Emmy for television, the Grammy for music, the Oscar for films, and the Tony for theater.
Imagine if there was someone with such a wide range of skills that they could cross over across those four media and win awards in each. And in fact, there are nine people alive who have won the Emmy, the Grammy, the Oscar, and the Tony. They’re recipients of the most elusive and sought-after acronym in the business. The most prestigious award an entertainer can earn is the EGOT.
