EGOT Historical Winners

How many artists do you think have picked up at least one award at each of the four major US awards shows? (EGOT).

The four glittering ceremonies are Emmys, Grammys, Oscars, and Tonys, and you can see it is not easy to win all four, with only 16 winners since 1962. 

Individuals tend to specialise and be rewarded in one or two entertainment disciplines.

13 male and 3 female have won at least 1 of the big 4 awards of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.

To receive recognition from a jury that are not your natural supporters takes an outstanding artist who is prepared to take risks.

Richard Rodgers

There are 16 EGOT winners with the first name on the list is composer Richard Rodgers, he is probably best known for The Sound Of Music and South Pacific which both won Grammy and Tony awards. 

His sole Oscar was won for Best Song in 1945 with It Might as Well Be Spring from the Walter Lang directed State Fair, and his Emmy was received in 1962 for a documentary on Winston Churchill in which he composed the music. 

In total, he won 13  across all 4 entertainment awards before his death in 1972.

John Legend

Legend is the latest EGOT artist, he completed the set in 2018 when he won a Primetime Emmy award for Jesus Chris Superstar. 

He had already won the first of his 12 Grammys, had an Oscar for the Best Original Song from the movie Selma, and had won a Tony in the previous year for producing Jitney on Broadway.

He remains a multi-faceted talent and I think we can expect more accolades for the Ohio-born superstar.
