February 22nd, 2015 3:00pm EST
EGOT
February is both Oscar and Grammy time, which has us thinking about EGOT winners, i.e., entertainers who have won at least one Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony in their careers. The term was coined by actor Philip Michael Thomas (Tubbs from “Miami Vice”) in an interview in “Vanity Fair,” when he stated his goal of winning all four awards (he has yet to be nominated for any of them). The concept was further popularized in recent years on “30 Rock,” in a storyline that saw Tracy Jordan achieve EGOT status over the course of Seasons 4 and 5.

The following is a handy guide to actual ’s are perh...

Shirley Manson Gives Kanye West A Verbal Thrashing Over His Gram
At last night's Grammys, Kanye West nearly pulled a second "Imma let you finish" when Beck won Best Album of the Year.

Beck, it turns out, was totally cool with it. Apparently, he thought Beyonce was a shoo-in to win too.

But Shirley Manson, lead singer of the band Garbage, has a bone to pick with Kanye.

She may not have had the Grammy platform to speak publicly like Kanye did (or a seat close enough to the stage that she could just leap up there and scream her feelings), but she's speaking out nonetheless.

Manson posted a scathing reply to Kanye on her Facebook wall, arguing that Kanye...
