EGOT Winners

There are all kinds of awards in the entertainment industry, but there are four big ones.  These are the Emmys, the Grammys, the Oscars and the Tonys.  There is of course some crossover of artists between these different awards, but there are only a handful who have won all four.  This is called an EGOT.  The twelve who have done it as of this writing are:

Richard Rodgers
Helen Hayes
Rita Moreno
John Gielgud
Audrey Hepburn
Marvin Hamlisch
Jonathan Tunick
Mel Brooks
Mike Nichols
Whoopi Goldberg
Scott Rudin
Robert Lopez

If you count honorary awards that does add half a dozen people to the list:

Barbara Streisand
Liza Minnelli
James Earl Jones
Alan Menken
Harry Belafonte
Quincy Jones

Honorable mention: Though it's not quite an EGOT, Bob Fosse is the only person to win an Academy Award, Emmy Award and Tony Award in the same year.
