EGOT by default

Further to my post about the EGOT, I should add 2 people to the list. The reason they weren’t included in the original list was because one of their awards was a special award, and not a competitive win. They still have the 4 trophies (more because of multiple wins) in their cabinet, so should be included.

    How could Babs forget The Babs!?

    • I didn’t really forget her, it was just that she hadn’t won the Tony for competing, only the special Tony. She probably should have won for her performance in Funny Girl back in 1964, but she was pipped at the post by Carol Channing in Hello Dolly, who I am sure deserved to win also.
