List of franchises that have won Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

This is a list of franchises that have won all four major annual American entertainment awards in a competitive, individual (non-group) category of the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards, or collectively EGOT.[1] Respectively, these awards honor outstanding achievements in television, recording, film, and theater.[2] Winning all four awards has been referred to as winning the "grand slam" of American show business.[3][4] The acronym EGOT was coined by actor Philip Michael Thomas.[5][6][7] To date, five franchises have won the EGOT, [1] with more franchises winning in three of the four categories and some which were nominated in all four.
