With her original song win for â€śSkyfall,â€ť Adele came one step closer to scoring an â€śEGOTâ€ť — that glorious grand slam of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards made famous by “30 Rock.”
Adele is now halfway to EGOT-ing. She just needs to lock down an Emmy and a Tony. If anyone can do it, it’s Adele. #OSCARS

Adele will EGOT in our lifetime, I know that much is true.

But Adele fans probably shouldnâ€™t get too pumped. The British songstress told reporters she has no plans for â€śRolling in the Deep: The Musical,â€ť the L.A. Times reports.
â€śThat’s not in my probability for the moment. No offense,â€ť she said backstage at the Dolby Theater. As for her Emmy chances, Adele joked: â€śMaybe I’ll do an HBO special like Beyonce did.â€ť
There have only been roughly a dozen EGOT winners in Hollywood history, and some of them only just squeaked in. Audrey Hepburnâ€™s Grammy was for a childrenâ€™s spoken word album, which almost shouldnâ€™t count. And Barbra Streisand, who performed at Sundayâ€™s ceremonies, is considered an EGOT winner — but her â€śSpecial Tony Awardâ€ť was honorary.
Martin Scorsese, Julie Andrews, Maggie Smith and Kate Winslet each boast three wins, as do at least 60 others who are all a bit closer than Adele. Plus the singer, who became a mom in October, admitted at the Grammys that she hasnâ€™t been working on any new material.
For the sake of awards-show viewers everywhere, we can only hope she wins more. The adorableness of Adeleâ€™s acceptance speeches is legend.
