Jennifer Hudson Is Now The Second Black Woman EGOT

Jennifer Hudson became an EGOT on Sunday night.

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. She had previously won an oscar for her role in Dreamgirls.


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.
