Jennifer Hudson celebrated the first anniversary of her most important victory!
Achieving EGOT status is the highest achievement anyone in the entertainment world can earn, as it includes the four major American entertainment awards, namely an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony. As no easy task, Hudson had no problem celebrating the day she became the 17th person — and youngest woman — in history to earn the honor recently.
Jennifer Hudson reminded viewers of her 17th position in EGOT Anniversary Tribute.
When Hudson joined the musical “A Strange Loop” team as producer, she didn’t expect it to earn her a Tony for Best Musical. But that’s precisely what happened for the ‘If This Isn’t Love’ hitmaker, who already has an Oscar for her role in the 2006 musical drama ‘Dreamgirls’ and two Grammys – one for her album. self-titled and another for his work on “The Color Purple” — and a 2020 Emmy for Fantasy Animation, “Baba Yaga.”
To mark the anniversary of this enviable achievement, the 41-year-old shared a stunning Boomerang of herself with her four million Instagram followers. The superstar’s beauty was evident in the reel, which featured her flaunting a beautiful pixie haircut and flawless face rhythm.
She hooked her left thumb in the pocket of her jeans and positioned her manicured right hand slightly above her chest, showcasing the tailored purple crop top she was rocking.
The long-sleeved outfit, partially unzipped to show some skin, came with his nickname “J.Hud” glittering on the upper left. The sun’s rays bounced off the diamond-encrusted “EGOT” on the back of the purple high-necked top, as Hudson put it in the caption:
“A year ago to the day, I became the 17th EGOT!! There are no limits to what God can do! It’s a year later and I’m still 17.
