Only 12 people have ever won the competitive collective crown known as the EGOT: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. And two of those people happen to be at the 90th Academy Awards tonight: legends Rita Moreno and Whoopi Goldberg.


86-year-old Moreno, currently tearing it up on Netflix’s One Day At At Time revamp, is making a huge splash by wearing the same dress she wore when she won Best Supporting Actress in 1962 for West Side Story.

Not to be outdone, 62-year-old Goldberg, winner in that same category in 1991 for Ghost, is wearing a floral tent of a dress that even Tom and Lorenzo appear to approve of.

Just hope the other attendees appreciate the Hollywood royalty they’re surrounded by.
