Who do you want to be the next EGOT winner: Common or Lin-Manuel Miranda? | The Tylt
John Legend is the latest entertainer to join the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winner list, becoming the first Black man to gain the honor. While many celebrated his win, others wonder who could be next. Common expanded from a popular emcee to actor and film producer—winning Grammys, an Emmy and an Academy Award. Lin-Manuel Miranda rose to prominence as a composer, playwright, actor and rapper—winning Tonys, Grammys and an Emmy. But who do you want to be the next EGOT winner? 🏆
Who do you want to be the next EGOT winner: Common or Lin-Manuel Miranda?
Common only needs a Tony Award to become an EGOT, and writing music for a production, or acting in a play or musical could be his ticket to garnering the honorific title. Make it happen, Common!
Believe it or not, Miranda is only missing an Oscar to become an EGOT. He earned a nomination for Best Original Song for "How Far I'll Go," but lost. As an acclaimed composer and actor, he's bound to win someday soon.
