Viola Davis Could Be the Next Star of the EGOT Thanks to a 2023 Grammy Nomination
Let me tell you that only 17 people have ever earned the coveted EGOT
Winning competitive trophies from the Emmys, Grammys, Oscars, and Tonys (though a few more qualify if you count non-competitive awards).
Now Viola Davis may be the next artist to enter that hallowed pantheon,
Because he earned a Grammy nomination on Tuesday after previously collecting an Emmy, an Oscar, and two tons.
Davis' Grammy nomination comes in the category of Best Audio Book, Narration and Storytelling Recording to narrate her recent memoir Finding Me.
His competitors in the category are Mel Brooks (who already has an EGOT), Lin-Manuel Miranda (who already has an Emmy and is just one Oscar short of an EGOT),
Jamie Foxx and Questlove.
Davis won her Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2016 starring opposite Denzel Washington
The same role for which she won her second Tony in 2010.
