Eminem's Emmy Win brings him closer to EGOT

Eminem One step closer to achieving EGOT status after winning an Emmy Award for a variety special (live).

With 15 Grammy Awards and an Academy Award for Original Song under his belt, the singer-songwriter only needs a Tony to achieve the elusive EGOT title (awarded to artists who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony).

Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation have brought together an unforgettable lineup of Pepsi performers Energy The LVI Halftime Show featured Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar. All artists are winners along with rapper “Lose Yourself”. Executive Producer Sean Carter aka Jay-Z also won an Emmy.

The Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show was the first time these five award-winning artists had performed together on stage. Collectively, the artists have been awarded 43 Grammys and among them 22 are #1 albums on the Billboard 200.

While none of the Emmy-winning artists were to accept the award, Adam Blackstone who also won Outstanding Music Direction, said his biggest challenge was, “Each of these five artists could easily have grabbed their headlines, but I was tasked with making sure That everyone has a good time, and that for me, I didn’t want to leave the viewer wanting anything more or missing out on their favorite moments from each of their favorite artists.”

Blackstone added, “I’ve been proud to grow 90 to 100 seconds per person, and it has combined to be what is now the Emmy Award winning semi-final show.”

Only 17 people managed to achieve EGOT status. The group includes Audrey Hepburn, Rita Moreno, Mel Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
