Adele One Step Closer To EGOT

By David Goe

Last night at the 85th Academy Awards Adele took home an Oscar for "Skyfall" in the best original song category. Surprisingly, the theme to "Skyfall" was the first James Bond theme song to ever win an Academy Award. Even more surprisingly only three other Bond songs, "For Your Eyes Only," "Nobody Does It Better," and "Live and Let Die," have even been nominated for an Academy Award.

With this win Adele is now half way towards completing her EGOT or winning all four major annual American entertainment awards, the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. All that remains for Adele is an Emmy and Tony award. Piece of cake, right?

Now I have no idea if Adele will ever be competitive in the Emmy or Tony awards but if she were to win in the remaining two categories she would join an elite list of performers who have completed the EGOT. Mel Brooks, Audrey Hepburn, and Whoopi Goldberg are the most recognizable of only 11 people who have competitively won all four major awards.

Of active musicians Randy Newman is probably closest to joining that list. Newman only needs a Tony award. Don't count out Adele though. Everything she makes is award bait so it may just be a matter of time before her EGOT is complete.
