Who's next up for EGOT? We rank the top 20 contenders for the Emmy-Grammy-Oscar-Tony club

Glenn Whipp
Emmy Grammy Oscar Tony. EGOT. Twelve people have won all four. (Honorary awards don’t count.) The man who coined the EGOT acronym, Philip Michael Thomas, is not one of them. (He’s 0 for 4.)
The dozen names on the list include actors Audrey Hepburn, Whoopi Goldberg, Helen Hayes, John Gielgud, Rita Moreno, composers Richard Rodgers, Jonathan Tunick and Marvin Hamlisch, songwriter Robert Lopez, director Mike Nichols, producer Scott Rudin and comic institution Mel Brooks.
There are also 45 living legends who have won three of the four awards. Who’s next up for EGOT? With Emmy nominations arriving Thursday, we ranked the top 20 in order of probability, meaning that, no, you’re not going to find, say, Andrew Lloyd Webber on the list because he’s unlikely ever to work in television. But don’t cry for him. We’re pretty sure he’ll be OK without an Emmy in his secret lair.
