Nichols is a member of the extremely exclusive club of EGOT winners – that is to say, people who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. As of right now, the EGOT club boasts only twelve artists, six of whom are still alive. Over the years, he has experimented with several different mediums, and excelled at each in a way that few other directors can claim.
His death is a great loss to the entire entertainment industry – Hollywood, the West End, and Broadway alike. But now that he’s gone, it’s time to celebrate all of the remarkable work that he has left behind for us to enjoy for years to come.
