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.
