Adele On Emmy Won: Trust Me To Officially Have An EGO!

Adele On Emmy Win: Adele received her first Emmy for a television concert special that aired before the release of her most recent album. At the Creative Emmy Awards on Sunday night, held in advance of the main Primetime Emmys ceremony the following week, One Night Only took home the Emmy for most outstanding variety special (pre-recorded).

The singer already has 15 Grammy awards and an Oscar for the James Bond theme, Skyfall. She only needs to participate in Broadway theatre now to have a chance at winning the EGOT; this may seem like a tall order for most, but remember, this is Adele.

Performers who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony are said to have achieved “EGOT status.” Adele thanked producer Ben Winston for bringing the award to her on social media while posting a picture of the trophy and commenting, “Bloody hell, I’m pleased as punch!” I appreciate @mrbenwinston sending this my way this afternoon. “Thank you so much, @televisionacad. I’m extremely honored to receive this. Trust me to have an EGO officially.

Bravo to all parties involved. I appreciate you letting me sing on your mountain, @griffithobservatory, and I send my best wishes to all the other nominees.”In June, Jennifer Hudson won a Tony for her work as a producer of the musical A Strange Loop, making her only the 17th celebrity to receive the EGOT.
