Lady Gaga Is on Her Way to Achieving EGOT Status & Here’s What You Need to Know

Lady Gaga is a singer, an actress and a fearless fashionista, but has she achieved the highly coveted—albeit rare—EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) status?

Sadly, the answer is no. But, to no surprise, the 32-year-old musician is right on the verge of joining the likes of John Legend, Audrey Hepburn, Whoopi Goldberg and 12 other multitalented celebs. Here’s everything you need to know about Gaga potentially achieving her EGOT.

Gaga has yet to win an Emmy Award, despite three previous nominations—two for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special (Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden and Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek Live!) and one for Outstanding Special Class Program (Super Bowl LI Halftime Show Starring Lady Gaga).

Although she is the proud owner of two Golden Globe Awards—Best Actress in a Limited Series (American Horror Story: Hotel) and Best Original Song (“Shallow” from A Star Is Born)—the honors don’t count toward the EGOT foursome.

Gaga had this one in the bag since 2010. Not only has the singer been nominated 24 times, but she’s also taken home nine of the awards.

O (oscar)

Although Gaga didn’t win the 2019 Academy Award for Best Actress (A Star Is Born), she did take home the statuette for Best Original Song (“Shallow”).

Nevertheless, it wasn’t the first time she attended the Oscars as a nominee. She was also nominated in 2016 for Best Original Song (“Til It Happens to You” from The Hunting Ground), but the award went to “Writing’s on the Wall” by Jimmy Napes and Sam Smith from Spectre.

Unfortunately, Gaga hasn’t received a Tony nomination or award. However, we can’t deny that a stage production of A Star Is Born sounds right up the singer’s alley.
