Obama, 61, won the best narrator Emmy for his work on the Netflix documentary series, “Our Great National Parks.”
The award is in addition to his two Grammys, which indicates that he’s halfway to an EGOT.
Barack Obama previously won Grammy Awards for his audiobook reading of two of his memoirs, “The Audacity of Hope” and “A Promised Land.” Michelle Obama won her own Grammy for reading her audiobook in 2020.
EGOT is a title bestowed on individuals who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony Award. For years, it has been hailed as the most coveted honour in show business. To date, 17 people have been conferred with it.
Glamsquad notes that Barack Obama is the second president to have an Emmy Award. Dwight D. Eisenhower was given a special Emmy Award in 1956.
The late Black Panther actor, Chadwick Boseman also won an Emmy for outstanding character voiceover for the Disney+ and Marvel Studios animated show “What If…?”
On the show, Boseman voiced his Black Panther character T’Challa in an alternate universe where he becomes Star-Lord from “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
It was one of the last projects Boseman did before he died of colon cancer in 2020 at age 43.
English singer, Adele, 34, also got her first Emmy win. She won the Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) Emmy for her CBS special “One Night Only”.
American rapper,Eminem, 49, also won an Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special, although his was for the live version; Adele’s was pre-recorded.
Eminem, Dre and the rest of the SB gang are all Emmy winners now for their Halftime Show performance earlier this year. His longtime manager, Paul Rosenberg, noted that on Twitter.
Eminem and Adele are just one award from EGOT.
