The Tony Awards are this weekend, and we can't help but wonder which big names have not only landed a Tony in the past, but are also almost in the EGOT club: that's a Tony, Emmy, Oscar, and Grammy. The title is Hollywood's grand slam of awards, and only a handful of celebrities (like Audrey Hepburn, Whoopi Goldberg, and Mel Brooks) have made the list. For now, Kate Winslet only needs to round out her award collection with a Tony, while Adele is halfway there with her Grammy wins and her Oscar for "Skyfall" this year. Click through to see what it will take for stars like Hugh Jackman, Denzel Washington, and more to join the highly coveted ranks, and make sure to check out which stars hit it big on Broadway before the show this weekend!
The Tony Awards are tonight, and we're celebrating by looking back at the biggest celebrities who have been honored by Broadway.

Click through to see the famous faces that have earned top honors at the theater world's biggest night.

Archie Panjabi won an award for The Good Wife and looked gorgeous in her black gown. Hugh Laurie looked smart in his suit and sat in the audience next to 30 Rock's Jack McBrayer.

Here's another trailer for you to take a look at, this time it's for 88 Minutes which comes out in the UK this Friday.
Al Pacino stars in the thriller as a college professor / FBI forensic psychiatrist who receives a death threat informing him that that he has only eighty-eight minutes to live. He then has to narrow down possible suspects, including a problem student, an ex-girlfriend, and a serial killer on death row.
Take a look at the teaser, and let me know — will you see it, or will you skip it?
50 Cent joined his costars Al Pacino and Robert De Niro on the red carpet in Leicester Square yesterday for the UK premiere Righteous Kill. Both acting legends spoke about how they'd love to work together again, with Al saying: "There’s no rivalry now but there was when we were younger" and Robert adding "we've always had a great respect for each other". Secret Diary of a Call Girl's Ashley Madekwe looked gorgeous and Leigh Francis gave his trademark thumbs up, but Mark Ronson struggled to smile for the cameras after those reports of a break up.
Righteous Kill came out in the States on Friday, but my girl Buzz wasn't overly impressed. To get a feel for the film (which is out in the UK next week) check out the trailer, and to see loads more pictures from the premiere, including Lady Victoria Hervey, Roxanne Pallett and George Lamb, just read more
