Emmy nominations put John Legend close to an EGOT

Tony-winning set designer Derek McLane was also nominated for his design of the 90th annual Oscars, his fifth consecutive nomination for the awards show.

Since Legend has already won a Grammy, Oscar, and Tony over the course of his career, if he nabs the Emmy award on September 17, he will join the coveted group of, ahem, legends (there are only 12 in total!) who have already scored wins at all four of the award ceremonies including the likes of Rita Moreno, Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn, and Mel Brooks.

As Entertainment Weekly notes, if the night goes well for him, he'll join the incredibly exclusive ranks of EGOT winners such as Richard Rodgers, Mel Brooks, Rita Moreno, Audrey Hepburn and Whoopi Goldberg.

Legend previously won an Oscar and Grammy for his work on the movie "Selma" and a Tony for the best revival of a play, "Jitney".

NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert received 13 nominations, including ones for stars John Legend, Sara Bareilles (Waitress), and Brandon Victor Dixon (Hamilton).

The 2018 Emmy Award nominees were announced this morning in a ceremony hosted by Ryan Eggold and Samira Wiley (who herself was nominated for her performance in The Handmaid's Tale). "But it's ok I AM SO PROUD!"

The beloved singer scored his first Emmy nomination for his starring role as Jesus Christ in NBC's live production of Jesus Christ Superstar. If he wins, he will complete his EGOT and my spike TV award will probably be moved.

Legend isn't the only person who is closer to an EGOT after Thursday's nominations. "To do it with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice would be especially cool, given that this was their show from the beginning".
