Subscribe to our Insider

There are only a handful of individuals who have reached the elite EGOT level and Jennifer Hudson is one of them. To be a part of the exclusive club, an artist has to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and a Tony Award in their career. On Sunday night, Hudson entered the club after winning a Tony Award as a co-producer of “A Strange Loop” which won for best musical.

“I got a dog and named it Oscar, and then I won my Oscar,” expressed a happy Hudson. “And then I got a dog and named it Grammy, and then I won my Grammy. So I think I should get some dogs and name them Emmy and Tony — and it’ll give me good luck, and I’ll win [They’re] like my good luck charms.”

As a multitalented artist, Hudson won an Oscar in 2006 for the Best Supporting Actress in “Dreamgirls”, two Grammys for Best R&B Album (Jennifer Hudson, 2009), and Best Musical Theater Album in the musical “The Color Purple” (2017). She won a Daytime Emmy for the animated short “Baba Yag” which Hudson helped voice and co-produce.

Hudson becomes the 17th person to become an EGOT winner. Other notable winners of all four major awards include Andrew Lloyd Webber, John Legend, Mike Nichols, Mel Brooks, and Whoopi Goldberg.
