Jennifer Hudson Achieves EGOT Status After Tony Win for ‘A Strange Loop’

Jennifer Hudson has achieved the rare status of EGOT!

What on earth is that? It’s okay, I had to Google it too. It’s when a performer is the recipient of the quartet of major awards during their career: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. It’s a huge deal because only 17 people in history can claim this prestigious honour.

And J-Hud is now one of them! The Broadway musical she co-produced, A Strange Loop, won Best Musical at Sunday evenings Tonys.

She won her Oscar back in 2006 for her supporting role in Dreamgirls, scored herself two Grammys in 2009 and 2017 and last year, won the daytime Emmy for the animated short film Baba Yaga on which she served as executive producer.

Other EGOT-status celebs include John Legend, Audrey Hepburn, Rita Moreno and Whoopi Goldberg.
