The Triple Crown of Acting is a term used in the American entertainment industry to describe actors who have won a competitive Academy Award, Emmy Award and Tony Award in the acting categories. 22 people have achieved the triple crown of acting (13 women, 9 men). Helen Hayes' Emmy Award win on February 5, 1953, made her the first person to achieve the triple crown. Thomas Mitchell became the first man to achieve the triple crown with his Tony Award win later the same year on March 29, 1953. Hayes and Rita Moreno are the only triple crown winners who have also won a Grammy Award to complete the EGOT.
