Irons just need a Grammy for an EGOT.
Al Pacino is a Grammy short film of the prestigious EGOT.
With a career spanning five decades, Al Pacino's home must be decorated with more trophies than the New Yorker can count on. The only thing missing is a Grammy. The star of "The Godfather" has an Oscar for Scent of a Woman, two Emmys for "You Do not Know Jack" and "Angels in America" and two Tonys for "Pavlo Hummel's Basic Training" and "Do a Tiger Wear a tie?
Julie Andrews has not yet managed to boast of EGOT.
