The actors have reached the top awards in the entertainment industry: Emmy, Tony, Grammy and Oscar.
The delivery of the Emmy Awards, held yesterday, Sunday, served to crown the new three “EGOT”, John Legend, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, who are the most recent winners of the top awards in the entertainment industry.
The trio achieved that achievement by winning the Emmy for the best variety special for NBC, “Jesus Christ Superstar, Live in Concert”, produced by Legend. Lloyd Webber and Rice were the composers of this musical originated in 1970.
They are the winners 13, 14 and 15 who historically get Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards. In the case of Legend, he thus became the first black actor to achieve an EGOT.
In his career, the artist has won 10 Grammy awards, an Oscar, and a Tony.
“When I started in the music business it was a dream for me to win Grammy awards, to have some success as a musician and to sell many albums and tours around the world as an interpreter, but I never dreamed of winning an EGOT,” said Legend after receiving the honor. .
Other EGOT are Robert Lopez, Helen Haynes, Rita Moreno, John Gielgud, Audrey Hepburn, Whoopi Golberg, Richard Rogers, Marvin Hamlish, Jonathan Tunick, Mike Nichols, Scott Rudin and Mel Brooks.
