Are these classic stars EGOT winners?

Only a small handful of artists have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, AND a Tony — can you identify who?

The EGOT is often seen as the highest honor in Hollywood. It means that an individual has won an Emmy Award, a Grammy Award, an Oscar (Academy Award), and a Tony Award. That means that they have to show that they're talented in television, music, movies, and theatre. That isn't an easy task. 

Over time, only nineteen people have joined this exclusive club. Six more have become honorary nominees, with one of their awards being non-competitive (like an honorary award.) 

Can you tell which of these multi-talented artists are part of the EGOT elite... and which aren't?

  1. James Earl Jones
  2. Audrey Hepburn
  3. Dick Van Dyke
  4. Ron Howard
  5. Mel Brooks
  6. George Burns
  7. Robin Williams
  8. Elton John
  9. Cher
  10. Liza Minnelli

Most people don't count "non-competitive" Oscars...just sayin'...

And the field has gotten a little muddled lately with the introduction of some of the newer, cheap Emmy cateogries.

MANY Broadway performers who would never likely win an Emmy have won one for Best "Performance" on a Daytime Talk Show. Which means they appear on a talk show and sing their song from their Broadway show...and win an Emmy for it??? Kind of silly, if you ask me. And nobody did...yet here I am...LOL

Minnelli has a competitive Oscar. Her non-competitive award was a lifetime achievement Grammy. Go figure. 🤷‍♀️

6 out of 10. OK, I knew Elton was, because that just happened. I know Rita Moreno is, but she wasn't in this quiz. Quite a few guesses on my part.

Pretty much EGOT-istical Guesswork.

7/10. Went too fast on Liza. Jennifer Hudson recently joined the club. I was expecting to see her name pop up but it didn’t.
