Jennifer Hudson joined an exclusive club on Sunday, achieving EGOT status with her Tony win for producing A Strange Loop, the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical written by Michael R. Jackson that follows a Black queer man who tries to write a musical while struggling with identity, among other things.
The 40-year-old multi-talented entertainer previously won a Daytime Emmy for executive producing the 2020 animated film Baby Yaga; Grammys in 2017 for The Color Purple and in 2009 for Best Album; and an Academy Award in 2007 for Dreamgirls.
The American Idol alum joins a small list of EGOT winners that includes John Legend, Whoopi Goldberg, Rita Moreno, Alan Menken, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Mike Nichols and Mel Brooks.
