With the news of this year's Emmy nominations making waves, it may well be time to take a look at which stars are on the cusp of landing one of the most lauded achievements in the entertainment world.

The EGOT — or the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards — is an honor that can be claimed by figures who have won at least one of each award. Among the (slim) ranks of EGOT winners are Audrey Hepburn, Whoopi Goldberg, Jennifer Hudson and Mel Brooks.

There are also stars who have achieved EGOTs through honorary non-competitive awards, such as Barbra Streisand, Harry Belafonte and Liza Minnelli.

So who are the people whose EGOTs are almost in reach?
