Neither Barbra nor Liza truly belong in the EGOT club.

Honorary, non-competitive awards don't really count.

by EGOTreply 1802/19/2013

Whatever it takes.

by EGOTreply 102/18/2013

I agree, R1.

whats egot

EGOT = Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony

If an entertainer EGOTs, they have the distinction of being only one of a handful of people who've won the most prestigious awards that exist for actors/musicians.

by EGOTreply 402/18/2013

It should be OGET

by EGOTreply 502/18/2013

I agree, OP.

by EGOTreply 602/18/2013

It should be OTEG. Grammys are almost worthless.

by EGOTreply 702/18/2013

Why doesn't Liza qualify? She's got all those awards.

by EGOTreply 802/18/2013

Barbra doesn't qualify, and no one other than her diehard fans really counts her as qualifying.

by EGOTreply 902/18/2013

Of course Barbra qualifies, she has the goddam award doesn't she?

When you get a Tony award as 'Star of the Decade' then we'll talk OP.

by EGOTreply 1002/18/2013

Barbra and Liza were each given "special" Tony awards, outside of the competitive awards, therefore they didn't "win" an award.

by EGOTreply 1102/18/2013

However they do belong to the EGOT R.I.P. club.

by EGOTreply 1202/18/2013

Whoopi just gave money to Throughly Modern Millie that shouldn't count either.

by EGOTreply 1302/18/2013

Barbra lost to Carol Channing and Phyllis somebody or other....can you imagine?

by EGOTreply 1402/18/2013

R11. Liza Minnelli has won three Tony Awards: 1965, 1974. 1978. And her 2009 Broadway show won for Best Special Theatrical Event.

And in 1973, Liza won Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year.

by EGOTreply 1502/18/2013

Sorry, R15. Liza received the special "Grammy Legend Award," a non-competitive award.

by EGOTreply 1602/18/2013

I suppose I should do one of those Spoken Word things to get the Grammy....but I do so dread the thought of attending the Tony Awards and having to sit though some shtick by Nathan Lane. That's why I usually do my plays in the park.

Phyllis Newman. She was on lots of things in the 60s when I was a kid. Really over-bearing personality. Even when I was young, I sensed there was something about her that I couldn't stand. She always tried WAY too hard.
