Does John Legend Have an EGOT?

John Legend Is 1 Award Away From Getting an EGOT

John Legend is one step closer to joining one of Hollywood's most elite clubs, and Chrissy Teigen wants everyone to know about it. On Thursday, the mother of two couldn't help but brag about her husband after he was nominated for two Emmys for NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live. "13 nominations for Jesus Christ Superstar this morning! John got two emmy nominations!" she wrote. "If he wins, he will complete his EGOT and my spike tv award will probably be moved. But it's ok I AM SO PROUD!" EGOT is an acronym for people who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony over the course of their careers.

After taking home an Oscar in 2015 for his song "Glory" in Selma, winning 10 Grammys, and taking home a Tony for coproducing the revival of August Wilson's play, Jitney, in 2017, he only needs an Emmy to complete the rare honor. And there's certainly a good chance he'll get it! Not only is he up for outstanding lead actor in a limited series or movie, but the live musical is also up for outstanding variety special. Since Legend was a coproducer for the production, he could also score an Emmy if it wins in that category.

Following his nomination, Legend told Good Morning America that he's very excited about the possibility of obtaining an EGOT. "It feels good to be on the brink [of that honor]," he said. "Even if it doesn't happen this year, if we do more on TV, it could happen another time, but this is probably the best shot I'll have for awhile. My fingers are crossed and if it happens, I'm very excited about the possibility." Guess we'll just have to wait and see!
