Poll Results:
Which superchamp do you think is most likely to win the next Tournament of Champions?

Helen Mirren, of course, won her Oscar for the movie “The Queen”, for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II, and her Tony for Best Actress in a Play, for her performance of Queen Elizabeth II in “The Audience”.

The Tony won completed Mirren’s “Triple Crown of Acting”; she has won four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie, in 1996 for “Prime Suspect 4: The Scent of Darkness”, in 1999 for “The Passion of Ayn Rand”, in 2006 for “Elizabeth I”, and in 2007 for “Prime Suspect: The Final Act”.

She doesn’t have any Grammy Awards, yet; a Grammy would make her the 17th person to have an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award (12 competitive, 4 including an honorary award). 24 people are missing the Grammy from their set, though.

And in looking at the list? Lin-Manuel Miranda is only missing an Oscar. Do you think he’ll be the next EGOT?
