Most members of the Hollywood elite would be satisfied if their resume boasted even one top industry award. But there exists a small group of talented celebs who claim the coveted EGOT status.

Vying for entrance into this club, a number of top actors, musicians, directors and screenwriters are just one distinction short of the EGOT title. So check out this collection of celebs who are one award away from claiming EGOT status.

Well, maybe I’ll do a spoken word thing with Kanye West or something like that!”
