The EGOT Club Welcomes a New Member! All of the Celebs Who've Earned the Major Honor
Alan Menken most recently joined the list of stars who've achieved Hollywood’s highest honor: winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony
With an impressive list of wins to his name — including two Oscars and three Grammys for 1991's Beauty and the Beast — Menken completed his EGOT status in 2012, earning a Tony for Newsies. The big title became a little more official recently, though; while he earned a special Emmy Award in 1990, he won an Emmy for outstanding original song in a children's, young adult or animated program for Tangled: The Series at the 2020 Daytime Emmy Awards.
Legend cemented his status in 2018 at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards for producing Jesus Christ Superstar Live. The then-39-year-old already had a whopping 10 Grammy Awards to his name and took home an Oscar in 2015 for his song “Glory” featured in Selma. The singer also won a Tony in 2017 for his role as a co-producer for the production of Jitney.
In an Instagram post honoring his fellow winners (and fellow newly minted EGOTs) Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, he wrote, "So happy to be part of this team. So honored they trusted me to play Jesus Christ. So amazed to be in such rarefied air. #EGOT"
And as if he weren't decorated enough, the star - who also won the 2019 season of The Voice — was crowned PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive in 2019, leading Blake Shelton to deliver him a pair of bedazzled booty shorts reading "VEGOTSMA."
SIR ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER
Broadway legend Webber won an Oscar in 1996 for Evita, plus multiple Grammys and Tonys. His EGOT came alongside legend in 2018 at the Creative Arts Emmys, for his production work on Jesus Christ Superstar Live. The Brit said he was "honored" to win the Emmy for this work.
The longtime Webber collaborator also picked up his Emmy and subsequent EGOT in September 2018 for Jesus Christ Superstar Live. Just like his colleague, he won an Oscar in 1996 for Evita, plus multiple Grammys and Tonys.
In 2002, Goldberg achieved EGOT status — winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony over the course of her career — cementing her new title when she won a Tony for Thoroughly Modern Millie. She also took home a Daytime Emmy that same year.
It took 41 years for the legendary actress to reach EGOT status. Hepburn officially joined Hollywood heavyweights with the same honor in 1994, when she won the Grammy for best spoken word album for children for Audrey Hepburn's Enchanted Tales.

The actor recieved his fourth award, an honorary Oscar, in 2014. He has recieved a total of six awards in the four categories over the course of his career.
Not only is Lopez the youngest EGOT recipient, but the songwriter is also the fastest to complete Hollywood's highest honor. Lopez earned his fourth distinction in 2014 when he won an Oscar for Frozen's "Let It Go."
The composer and conductor completed his grand slam in 1997, earning his first-ever Tony for best orchestrations for Titanic.
