Donald Glover is halfway there.

If I were him my next project would be total crap just to score a Razzie and get an ERGOT.

Doesn't Mel Brooks just need another Oscar to be a double EGOT?

Given the sheet number of shiat entertainment products out there relative to last centry, I bet the increased number of EGOTs is more of a function of one eyed kings in the land of the blind than a legitimate increase in the the average talent of celebrities.

If they were alive today, for example, Cab Calloway and his band would blow any other act off the stage. Literally.

A lot of those old Vaudeville cum Hollywood types were a lot more talented than they ever got credit for, too. They just never got the chance to complete for all the awards

He should try to get an American Music Award and one that begins with "S" to get the full "GOATSE."

I can't accept that anyone was awarded anything for Wonder Pets.

Meh.  Only two actors have been killed on screen by a xenomorph, a terminator, and a predator:  Bill Paxton, and Lance Henrikson.

Was Bill Paxton killed by the terminator? I thought he ran. But then, I've heard this factoid before, so you must be correct.

You don't actually see him get killed.  His buddy gets his heart torn out, but Bill Paxton gets thrown back into a gate fence.

I wouldn't put it past Lin Manuel-Miranda that after getting the PEGOT when Hamilton gets made into a movie and he wins for Best Song, that he decides to do a movie musical version of something awful for the Razzie.

This intrigued me to skim Wikipedia a bit. Apparently it's for animated shows, kids shows, soap operas, talk shows, and morning shows. Since 95% of animated shows (especially those shown during the day) are for kids and there's about an inch's difference between talk shows and morning shows, it's basically only three types of shows.

Also most game shows (actually, since there isn't a prime time award from quiz/game shows... there is for "competition shows", even "prime time" game shows usually end up here, ie, Millionaire won twice when starting on ABC in 2000).

This one didn't get any funnies?  I'm disappointed, Fark.  Maybe I was being too obscure.  That is Ergot, a fungus that grows on grains like rye and wheat, and it's an alkaloid that can cause things like a burning sensation in your limbs, and hallucinations.

I always thought it was weird that the letters were in the E-G-O-T order.  It makes it hard to pronounce.  It should be TOGE or TEGO or something that is easier to say.

According to the wiki, he's killed because his spine breaks.

On the list of historical acts i would like to see, Cab & Co is right up there.

Disney does; it's in Orlando.  Lots of walking.

EGOT is small potatoes. What really matters is the PEGOT and only 2 people have ever accomplished it. Lin-Manuel Miranda is one Oscar away from being the third, and by far the youngest.
