As a proud recipient of the highly recognized Emmy, Grammy, Oscars, and Tony Awards, Jennifer Hudson is giving fans a full glimpse of her EGOT collection.
It is worth knowing that with Hudson’s recent Tony win, she became the youngest woman and second black female to receive all four American entertainment accolades. In honor of the achievement, she could not help but showcase the award plaques with a lovely snap on Instagram, indicating that one of the medals had just arrived.

“Look what arrived yal !!! @thetonyawards @strangeloopbway,” the “American Idol” alum penned alongside a vivid image of her beaming and holding her Tony Award. The picture also showed her Emmy, Grammy, and Oscar honor arranged on a surface by her side while she struck a pose, donning a purple lined long-sleeved dress, with her Tony.
She flattered her simple outfit with classic jewelry pieces comprising small ear studs and a thick gold choker paired with a slim necklace. At the same time, her nails were perfectly manicured and colored a darker shade of purple, accentuating her lighter-colored dress.
Naturally, fans flooded the post in no time with congratulatory remarks, hailing her for the admirable feat and expressing their happiness and pride for the EGOT winner. Earlier in June and following her EGOT accomplishment, The Blast reported that Hudson made an appreciation post on Instagram directed to her fans and everyone who supported her along the way.
She wrote, “Wow!!! I am overwhelmed by all the outpouring of love and support that I am still receiving, and I’m still processing this whole new ground. What an honor!” The “Dreamgirls” actress further expressed gratitude to her followers, who she could not live without, for sticking by her side during her journey.

After the appreciation post, Hudson shared a detailed picture update about the Tony Awards ceremony and featured glimpses of several other entertainment stars. Among the included celebs were the likes of Jessica Chastain, Jaquel Spivey, RuPaul, Benj Pasek, Myles Frost, Colman Domingo, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Billy Porter.

According to the news outlet, Hudson is the latest recipient in the select group of Tony honorees alongside past winners, including Richard Rodgers, Helen Hayes, Rita Moreno, John Gielgud, and Audrey Hepburn, among others. She also began her EGOT journey a while back, starting by bagging an Oscar for the 2007 film “Dreamgirls,” followed by a Grammy win for her 2009 self-titled first studio album.

Her Daytime Emmy Award came a few years later for her feature on the short animation “Baba Yaga,” which she also voice-acted and produced. All the same, an Emmy Award may be another win in the stunning artist’s future, given her upcoming talk show, “The Jennifer Hudson Show.”
