    Jennifer Hudson Wins Daytime Emmy, Becoming One Award Short of an EGOT

    Jennifer Hudson won a Daytime Emmy Thursday for her role as executive producer in Baobab Studios’ “Baba Yaga,” putting her one award short of achieving EGOT status.

    VR animated film “Baba Yaga,” made for the Oculus Quest (Facebook’s VR headset product range) , won in the “interactive media for a daytime program category”. Hudson starred alongside Glenn Close, Kate Winslet and Daisy Ridley, who also voiced characters.

    Jennifer Hudson was just nominated for her first Tony Award, as a producer on the Best Musical frontrunner “A Strange Loop”, if it wins next month, she’ll become the 18th EGOT.

    (Don Cheadle would also be halfway to an EGOT, following his two Grammy wins).

    Hudson would be the 17th EGOT.

    With a Tony win tonight for co-producing the Best Musical winner, A Strange Loop, Jennifer Hudson completes the EGOT, becoming the youngest woman to do so. She previously won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Dreamgirls, won two Grammys (for Best R&B Album and Best Musical Theatre Album for the revival of The Color Purple respectively), and a Daytime Emmy for producing Baba Yaga.

    If you were to guess which parts of EGOT Don Cheadle had completed I don’t think anyone would guess tony and grammy. So weird.

    I think Cheadle can definitely do it one day now that he’s got the two that are hardest for a primarily on-screen actor to get.

    Comedy: Bill Hader & Quinta Brunson
    Drama: Jeremy Strong & Britt Lower

    It’s quite insane how elusive the Emmy has been for him considering his expansive work in television and his numerous nominations. But considering how active he is in TV, I’m sure it will come relatively soon. It’s the Oscar that’s harder for him since he seems to have been preoccupied with tentpoles and thrillers as of late. The next film that appears to be any close to receiving Oscar buzz is White Noise and I think if his supporting character is any good (and the film is strong enough during awards season, which I’m admittedly not predicting right now), then I wonder if he could ride the momentum to a second Oscar nomination and then to his first win, thus completing the EGOT. Something for us to look out for, I think.

    I tend to think of the Emmy as being the easiest of the 4 to win— in part because comparatively, so many of them are given out— but it can be oddly elusive for some; it’s the only one that Stephen Sondheim never won, and he just seems like a person who should have EGOTed.

    It’s funny how J.Hud was snubbed at the Oscars for Respect but became an EGOT winner just a few months later. Sometimes you gotta lose to win again.
