Ellen Burstyn's Emmy win last night adds her to the "triple crown of acting" list--the elite group of actors who have won an Oscar, an Emmy and a Tony. She is the 18th actor among the list (which includes the two acting winners of the Grand Slam, the triple crown plus a Grammy [Helen Hayes and Rita Moreno]).
Geoffrey Rush joined the list earlier this year with a Tony win.
Kevin Kline could also join the club next Sunday (with host Neil Patrick Harris) if he wins Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for Cyrano de Bergerac. Since that's the only nomination for that production, and it wasn't made by HBO, I'm saying not super likely. I'm thinking Brendan Gleeson for The Gathering Storm, or possibly Kevin Bacon for Taking Chance (only because it's the first thing he's been nominated for--which would be how Drew Barrymore could win for Grey Gardens... sympathy).
