Diva/Mensch pair for July 27, 2022

EGOT #9 is Mike Nichols. For my examples I've chosen one of my favorite moments in *The Graduate* and a lyrical scene from *Wit.*

Diva: *The Graduate*

Mensch: *Wit*

Mike Nichols (1931–2014), a director, actor, and comedian received his fourth distinct award in November 2001. Between 1961 and 2012, Nichols received a total of 15 awards. Nichols was the first slam winner to win the Grammy as their first award, the first winner to have won multiple awards (an Oscar, several Tonys, and two Emmys) for directing. When counting all awards won—not just the first of each type—Nichols has the longest timespan of awards among Grand Slam winners, at 51 years.
