In Hollywood, there’s an elite group of individuals who have an EGOT — aka, hold at least one Emmy Award, Grammy Award, Academy Award (Oscar) and Tony Award.

As of now, there are only 12 people, including Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn, Richard Rodgers and Helen Hayes, who can claim the title, but there are 22 who are only one award away.

You go, almost EGOTers!
