Adele - Adele Wants To Win The Grand Slam Of Showbiz

Adele is aiming high after her Golden Globes win as she is now hoping to secure all four of Hollywood's top prizes.

The British singer took home her first major Hollywood award on Sunday night (13Jan13) when she accepted a Golden Globe trophy for her James Bond theme tune Skyfall.

She has now revealed she wants to achieve the Hollywood quadruple, known as the Egot, by winning trophies at the industry's four top prizegivings - the Emmy Awards, the Grammys, the Oscars and the Tonys.

When asked about her Egot ambitions, she tells E! News, "I'm going to do it... (I want to write music for) Broadway and a Tv show."

Only 11 artists in history have completed the Egot in the awards shows' competitive categories, and they include Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg and composer Marvin Hamlisch.

Adele has a good shot at scooping the title - she already has eight Grammy Awards and Skyfall is nominated for a Best Original Song Oscar at the upcoming Academy Awards next month (Feb13).
