So now Martin Scorsese, Kate Winslet and Maggie Smith are one award away to EGOT, are we seeing them pursuing those awards anytime soon?

You speak of Tracy Jordan's coveted Emmy-Grammy-Oscar-Tony whammy, an honor enjoyed by not only 30 Rock's fictional Jordan (aka the real Tracy Morgan), but also the very real Whoopi Goldberg, Barbra Streisand and James Earl Jones. (Chuck Norris does not have an EGOT, just FYI.)
But I can tell you that at least two of these folk have no plans to round out their EGOs with a Tony:
Winslet and Scorsese.
A rep for Winslet tells me this week that she has no immediate plans for a live theater gig, which you'd kind of need if you wanted a Tony.
As for Scorsese, he also sees no Tony in his future.
"No, I'll never get that," he told Access Hollywood backstage at Emmys earlier this month.
Maggie Smith has not had a theater role since 2007, but never count the dame out. She has an entire Wiki page that just lists her awards, so would you really be shocked if she scored a Tony soon?
Who do you think deserves an EGOT next?
