Jennifer Hudson

Singer, actor, and all-around talented individual Jennifer Hudson has achieved the prestigious EGOT status after winning a Tony Award as a co-producer for the musical A Strange Loop. Hudson is only the 17th artist in history to achieve this.

The EGOT status is the colloquial name for the honor conferred on any artist who’s won an Emmy award (for television), a Grammy award (for music), an Oscar award (for movie), and a Tony award (for a stage play). Hudson, 40, won her Oscar in 2007 for the film Dreamgirls. She has won two Grammys, and picked up a Daytime Emmy last year as an executive producer of the interactive animation Baba Yaga.

Other living artists in this hallowed club include John Legend, Whoopi Goldberg, and Mel Brooks. 

Congratulations Jennifer Hudson!
