Major! Jennifer Hudson One Award Shy of EGOT Status After Emmy Win

Published: Thursday 9th Sep 2021 by Sam

Jennifer Hudson just added another major award to her mantel and it sees her strut even closer to EGOT status.

Full story below…

The multi-hyphenate talent won a Daytime Emmy today for her role as executive producer in VR animated film ‘Baba Yaga.’

Hudson, 39, was among a number of notable names to voice characters in the production; a list that included the likes of Glen Close and Kate Winslet. 

Ultimately though, it was the film’s win in the category of Interactive Media for a Daytime Program that earned Hudson the honor.

It means the ‘Dreamgirls’ star – who now has an Emmy, Grammys, and an Oscar to her name – is just one award away from earning the coveted EGOT status. For, only a Tony Award remains.

Back in 2016, she appeared to be a shoo-in after being nominated for her role in the Broadway adaptation of ‘The Color Purple’ – which nabbed four nominations but omitted her.

Should a Tony be in her future (which for us feels more “when” than “if”), Hudson would join the likes of Whoopi Goldberg and John Legend on the elite list of names to have achieved EGOT status.

Remarking on her win, the ‘Respect’ star said:

“Wow! Thank you @televisionacad for this honor. And thanks to the incredible creative team at @baobabstudios for bringing the important story of “Baba Yaga” to life. I am so grateful for the opportunity to lend my voice to a character and executive produce alongside this innovative team. You all inspired me doing what you do best. Receiving an Emmy for this special project is truly the icing on the cake!”

    Beyonce could never Jhud was the true star of dreamgirls and better actress etc. Bey wishes

    • Ugghh September 9, 2021

      Do you compare men like this?

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 9, 2021

        The article is about a woman… And Beyoncé is a terrible actress. Good performer? Yes. Actress? No. One person can’t be good at everything.

      • Pray for the youth September 9, 2021

        The article is about one woman. Jennifer. Ya’ll are OBSESSED with Beyonce chile. Even when it’s not about her, it’s about her. Beyonce may never get an emmy or an oscar, just like Jennifer may never have more Grammys than any other singer ever. They are both excelling in their own careers. Both of them have great accomplishments that the other one doesn’t. At this point, you’re just keeping tally for no good reason — you don’t care about art or talent. If you did, you would have at least pretended to congratulate Jennifer or comment on her performance. Lol, neither one of you even mentioned her once. It’s pathetic. Why do you, who would never in this life or the next, be considered for any of these 4 awards, think you are in a position to mock someone who has already accomplished more in her profession than you ever will?

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 9, 2021

        It’s about Jennifer’s ACTING, something she did with BEYONCÉ. For fûck sake, y’all are SO DUMB and need EVERYTHING BROKEN DOWN and SPELLED OUT for you. It’s EXHAUSTING. Go back to fûcking school you dumb cûntt.

      • Pray for the youth September 9, 2021

        Jennifer acted with a lot of people. Is this article now about all of them too??? Dream girls happened 15 YEARS AGO. lmao, you’re an idiot. Imagine doing one thing with Beyoncé, and FIFTEEN years later, when you’re on the verge of being an EGOT, all people can talk about is Beyoncé. You are so OBSESSED with her that you made someone else’s accomplishment, all about her. That is some Stan level mess. Just because your comments aren’t positive, doesn’t mean you’re not a fan. She was your focus.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 9, 2021

      💯

      • Livelife&Learn&Forgive September 9, 2021

        Um Barbra Streisand can be good and both and successful and Oscar etc.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 9, 2021

        I meant Beyoncé lol

    • YBISY September 9, 2021

      Just like how Jennifer Hudson can’t sell an album or get a hit to save her life.
      I really wish you all would stop trying to make fetch happen.
      Aretha Franklin chose wrong! With a Hollywood studio backing her and all this promo
      Soundtrack:Flop
      Movie: Major box office bomb
      The Gift soundtrack is a flop and it’s on par with the highest selling Jennifer Hudson. So I would most definitely sit this one out.

      • Livelife&Learn&Forgive September 9, 2021

        Lol well you tell that to all the awards she has lol.

    • YALLPRESS September 9, 2021

      AND JENNIFER DUDSON IS A ONE HIT WONDER FLOP. BEYONCE IS STILL THE MORE DECORATED WITH OVER 20 GRAMMYS TO HER NAME AND COUNTLESS OTHER ACCOLADES. RESPECT FLOPPED AND SO DID THE SOUNDTRACK. IT DIDNT EVEN DO 10 MILLION OPENING WEEKEND MEANWHILE CANDYMAN DID 25 MILLION. JENNIFER DUDSON IS NO ONES ACTRESS VERY ONE DIMENSIONAL IN EVERYTHING SHE DOES.

      • Livelife&Learn&Forgive September 9, 2021

        Where her Oscar Where’s her Emmy oh yeah jhud has those and wait she might get the egot oh wait she has grammys also. At least she didn’t have to pay for the grammy unlike beyonce dad did those 20.
