This is a list of persons who have won Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards. These are considered the four major entertainment awards in American show business.[1] Presented annually, the awards honor outstanding achievements, respectively, in film, television, music, and theater.[2] Winning all four awards has been called the Showbiz Award Grand Slam[3][4] or EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony)[5]. It is also referred to as being one of the "Greatest Entertainers."

Four awards

To date, only ten artists have won an Academy Award, an Emmy Award, a Grammy Award, and a Tony Award in competitive categories. They are: actors John Gielgud, Whoopi Goldberg, Helen Hayes, Audrey Hepburn, Rita Moreno; composers Marvin Hamlisch, Richard Rodgers, and Jonathan Tunick; and directors Mel Brooks and Mike Nichols.[2] (Two of these artists, Rodgers and Hamlisch, have each won the Pulitzer Prize as well.) Two more artists, Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand, have also won all of the four major entertainment awards, although their awards were not exclusively competitive.[2] Below, the ten artists who have won competitive Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards are listed first in chronological order by the date on which they achieved this milestone. They are followed, also chronologically, by the two additional artists whose awards were not exclusively competitive, but also included special or honorary awards.
