With nine Grammy Awards and now one Oscar to her name, Adele is halfway to EGOT -- the rare title bestowed on individuals who have also won a Tony Award and an Emmy.

To date, only 11 people have been able to call themselves EGOT winners, including Mel Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg and Scott Rudin, whose Grammy win in 2012 officially inducted him into the exclusive club.

Following her win for Best Original Song for “Skyfall” on Sunday, Adele flirted with the idea of winning an Emmy and Tony in her future.

“Maybe I’ll do an HBO special like Beyonce did,” she joked to reporters backstage at the Dolby Theatre.

“Tony . . . I’m not so sure. Maybe one day, maybe someone might want to do a musical. It’s not my kind of thing, a musical, no offense.”

Adele, 24, is not alone in the waiting room.

Here are seven others who are just one award away from joining the ranks of Audrey Hepburn, Marvin Hamlisch and Richard Rodgers, who completed the first EGOT more than 50 years ago.

Do you think Adele will ever win a Tony or Emmy? Weigh in below.
