There are only a lucky few who can consider themselves members of the EGOT club—and for good reason.

Not only is it incredibly difficult to prove that you're an absolute winner in every performance category across the board.

And while we both know and love those who have achieved such impressive status, like Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn and Mel Brooks, just to name a few, there's an even longer list for those who are just award shy of the prestigious honor.

Take a gander at the gallery below and see which other celebrities are nearing the ultimate title of EGOT card-carrying member.

The 2018 Emmys will air lives from the Microsoft Theater in L.A. on Monday, September 17, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
