(KTLA) — Chicago’s Very Own Jennifer Hudson has achieved EGOT status.
The singer/ actress and Windy City native won her first Tony award when “A Strange Loop” won for Best Musical. Hudson is a producer on the show.
The achievement was the final trophy she needed to complete the EGOT quartet, which is comprised of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.
The 40-year-old won an Academy Award in 2007 for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Effie White in “Dreamgirls.” Her self-titled debut solo album won a Grammy in 2009 for Best R&B Album. She later won another Grammy in 2017 for Best Musical Theater Album for the musical “The Color Purple.”
Last year, Hudson won a Daytime Emmy for the animated short “Baba Yaga,” which she executive-produced.
Currently, there are 17 EGOT winners.
