Hollywood is teeming with talented filmmakers, composers and entertainers, but only a select few have secured the coveted EGOT title. Often called the grand slam of show business, this group is exclusive to those who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award—all of which represent the highest honors in television, music, film and theater. To date, only 18 celebrities have joined the EGOT winners club (not counting those with honorary, non-competitive awards—like James Earl Jones and Barbra Streisand).
Actress Viola Davis is one of the latest Hollywood celebs to join the honorary list of winners and achieve EGOT status, thanks to her win at the 2023 Grammy Awards earlier this year. Davis’s memoir, Finding Me, won the prize for Best Audio Book, Narration and Storytelling Recording, which made her the 18th person to attain the honor.
So, what other artists have accomplished this amazing feat? From Rita Moreno to John Legend, keep reading for a full list of EGOT winners.
