New Delhi. Former US President Barack Obama made a splash in Hollywood. Barack Obama, who received almost all major awards including the Nobel Peace Prize, won the prestigious Emmy Award of the television world with his entry into Hollywood. On Saturday, the Television Academy presented Barack Obama with an Emmy Award for his narration in his Netflix documentary series Our Great National Parks.

Barack Obama, one of the popular leaders of the world, who was twice president of the United States, was also awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He has also received the Grammy, the biggest award in the world of music, twice. Now he has also received Emmy, the most prestigious award in the world of television. Thus, of the four prestigious awards in the entertainment world, two are now lagging behind. They are Oscar and Tony.

These four prices are called EGOT. That is to say the realization of obtaining the four prizes. (achievement of winning all four major US entertainment awards). This means that if they win two more rewards, they will join the EGOT club. According to tracker Entertainment Weekly, only 17 people have reached EGOT, including Mel Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn and, most recently, Jennifer Hudson.

Before that, another US President received an Emmy in 1956. However, the then President D. Eisenhower received the Honorary Emmy Award. Since leaving office in 2017, Obama and his wife Michelle have both written their own memoirs, and both memoirs are among the best-selling memoirs. After that, he formed a non-profit organization under which a production company was established. This company is said to have made a big deal with Netflix of over $10 million. His company’s first documentary film, “American Factory,” won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature and an Emmy for Directing. However, for this, the makers of the film got this award, and not Obama himself. That’s why he hasn’t won an Oscar yet.
