Which individuals have won all four major entertainment awards—Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Grammy?
—Kenneth Lawson, Brooksville, Fla.
Only nine people have been honored with trophies in competitive categories of all four major organizations, which recognize achievement for movies (Oscar), television (Emmy), music (Grammy) and theater (Tony). They are directors Mel Brooks and Mike Nichols; actor Sir John Gielgud; actresses Helen Hayes, Audrey Hepburn and Rita Moreno; and composers Marvin Hamlisch, Richard Rogers and Jonathan Tunick. You can add comedian Whoopi Goldberg to the list if you include the Daytime Emmy Awards, and Barbra Streisand and Liza Minnelli if you consider noncompetitive, special-achievement Tony and Grammy honors.
