Mayim Bialik and the Jewish EGOT

Guess how many MOTs have EGOTs?

Print Email

It was announced today that Mayim Bialik, a Tablet contributor, was nominated for an Emmy, along with Lena Dunham and Max Greenfield.

If Bialik wins, she will be halfway toward the coveted EGOT, which in showbiz speak is an acronym for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony, the quadrennial to which many artists aspire. (In this case, the Tony would be replaced by Tablet contributor, but let’s not let the truth get in the way of a good story.)

This led me to wonder how many of those who had EGOTed before were Jewish? Fortunately, the Scroll-editor emeritus had the answer, six according to a report filed in February. That’s six of twelve.

Can you name them? (The answer’s here.)

Daily rate: $2

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
