EGOT

As a close for the month of August, Cinema Blend created this nifty illustration of all of the EGOT winners so far. For the record, I find it bizarre that Liza Minelli and Barbara Streisand don't have a competitive Grammy and a Tony, respectively, considering how famous they are for those very mediums. What is this world coming to?
Another thing that's been on my mind in the wake of the Emmys: how odd is it that Mad Men has three Best Drama Emmys and is routinely called the best show on television (when Breaking Bad isn't carrying that mantle), not a single actor on the show has won yet? Jon Hamm is shooting 0-for-3, as is John Slattery, and this past year it seemed certain that one of the women on the show would finally get a win (i.e., Christina Hendricks)? I personally think a lot of that comes from the fact that the Emmys are never an accurate depiction of TV's best, and one day someone on Mad Men will win way past their prime. Plus, Bryan Cranston has to lose eventually, right?
