Hudson achieved “EGOT” status after winning a Tony for “A Strange Loop,” which won best musical. Hudson previously earned an Oscar for her role in Dreamgirls, two Grammys and an Emmy for “Baba Yaga.”

She added, “And then when they said ‘Strange Loop,’ best musical, I was cheering for them and once we got on the stage, everybody started chanting ‘EGOT! EGOT!’ And I was like . ‘Wait, what?’ It blows me away. I call myself 17 because 17th EGOT. I’m the 17th.”
