Jennifer Hudson Now Has An EGOT

Jennifer Hudson Is Now The Second Black Woman EGOT

  • Only 17 other entertainers in the history of Hollywood have done this. 
  • Hudson’s last qualifying award came at the Tony Awards in 2022, when she co-produced A Strange Loop, which won Best Musical. Jennifer has an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for ”Dreamgirls”, two Grammy Awards for Best R&B Album and Best Musical Theater Album and a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Interactive Media for for ”Baba Yaga”
  • Hudson is only the second Black woman and third African American to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award. 
  • Whoopi Goldberg got the award first in 2002, and then John Legend got it in 2018.  Hudson is also the first contestant on American Idol to be named an EGOT.
    (Jennifer is another non-winner of American Idol to have an incredible career anyway. #BlonolovesLeah)

Here is short clip of A STRANGE LOOP, which Hudson co-produced and won BEST MUSICAL at the 2022 Tony Awards
