Adele is halfway to an EGOT (winning an Emmy, Oscar, Grammy and a Tony) and she's got plans to complete the title.
The "Rolling In The Deep" singer took home an Oscar for "Skyfall" at the 2013 ceremony and already has multiple Grammys to her name. What will she do for the Emmy and Tony?
"Maybe I'll do an HBO special like Beyonce did," she said backstage at the Dolby Theater on Sunday, Feb. 24. "And a Tony, I'm not so sure. Maybe someday I'll do a musical."
The current list of EGOT honorees is a short one. Actors John Gielgud, Helen Hayes, Audrey Hepburn, Rita Moreno and Whoopi Goldberg have received all four awards, as have composers Marvin Hamlisch, Richard Rodgers and Jonathan Tunick. Mel Brooks, director Mike Nichols and producer Scott Rudin have also gotten all four. James Earl Jones, Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand are considered EGOT winners, but at least one of their awards was an honoree one. Some famous names who are thisclose to becoming EGOT winners: Cher, Maggie Smith, Elton John, Lily Tomlin, Cynthia Nixon, Robin Williams and Kate Winslet.
The term EGOT became popular thanks to "30 Rock," but was apparently created by boastful "Miami Vice" star Phillip Michael Thomas.
Now we'll be waiting patiently for Adele's stage musical, thank you.
