Here's our burning question: does a Daytime Emmy count toward an EGOT?
No, no, no -- you have to win the Emmy, the Grammy, the Oscar, and the Tony. There are [four awards]. There's only five or six or seven people that have it -- Barbra Streisand and a few others. [Note: Streisand does technically does not have an EGOT, as her Tony is a non-competitive "Star of the Decade" award.]
Whoopi Goldberg is a known EGOT winner, but she won with a Daytime Emmy. Is that legit?
No, no, no.
No? It's got to be a Primetime Emmy?
No, no, whatever. You can win all four of those awards -- however you get it. But it's not really about the awards. If you study to be a doctor, you want a degree, right?
Okay. If you're studying to be a lawyer, you want a degree.
In the entertainment business, it's about accomplishing your goals and finally winning at your craft. If you're starring on Broadway, you want to win a Tony. You star on television, you want to win an Emmy. You starring on film? Oscar. Okay? Same thing.
