EGOTKCH:  Your Kennedy Center Honors recipients this year?  Tom Hanks, Lily Tomlin, Sting, Al Green, and ballerina Patricia McBride.  FWIW, Tomlin is just missing the "O" to EGOT, Hanks has Emmys, Oscars, and a Tony nomination, but no Grammy, and Sting has Grammys, Emmys, and three Oscar nods, with Tony nominations seeming to be in the picture for this year.

    Cue my annual remembrance that you do not have to be a US citizen to receive the honor, which is kind of nice.

    I have no quarrel with this list, though ... two contemporary music, but no classical, no opera? And while Tomlin and Hanks have done tv, I'm not sure that's how they're primarily thought of.
