With his recent Emmy Award win thanks to the Super Bowl halftime show, Eminem adds yet another accolade to his growing collection. He now has an Emmy Award, a Grammy Award, and an Academy Award, making him one Tony Award short of reaching EGOT status.
Eminem won his first two Grammy Awards in 2000 for Best Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Album for his single “My Name Is” and his album The Slim Shady LP. He won two Grammys the following year for Best Rap Solo Performance for his song “The Real Slim Shady” and Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for “Forgot About Dre,” his collab with future halftime show performer Dr. Dre. In total, Eminem has earned 15 Grammy Awards throughout his career.
Only 17 people have managed to achieve EGOT status. The group includes Audrey Hepburn, Rita Moreno, Mel Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Most recently, Jennifer Hudson joined the EGOT club in June after winning the Tony Award for best musical as a producer on “A Strange Loop.” John Legend is another recent winner.
