Adele is halfway to an EGOT after her Oscar win

With her original song win for “Skyfall,” Adele came one step closer to scoring an “EGOT” — that glorious grand slam of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards made famous by “30 Rock.”

 

 

But Adele fans probably shouldn’t get too pumped. The British songstress told reporters she has no plans for “Rolling in the Deep: The Musical,” the L.A. Times reports.

“That’s not in my probability for the moment. No offense,” she said backstage at the Dolby Theater. As for her Emmy chances, Adele joked: “Maybe I’ll do an HBO special like Beyonce did.”

There have only been roughly a dozen EGOT winners in Hollywood history, and some of them only just squeaked in. Audrey Hepburn’s Grammy was for a children’s spoken word album, which almost shouldn’t count. And Barbra Streisand, who performed at Sunday’s ceremonies, is considered an EGOT winner — but her “Special Tony Award” 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 hasn’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 Adele’s acceptance speeches is legend.
