Obama won the outstanding narrator Emmy Award for his work on the Netflix documentary, “Our Great National Parks.”
Obama is the second US president to win an Emmy. Dwight Eisenhower was awarded an honorary Governors Award by the Television Academy while he was still in office in 1956.
Obama is now halfway to becoming an EGOT winner, someone who has received Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards. The achievement has only been accomplished by 17 people, including Rita Moreno and John Legend. The former president has previously won two Grammys for audio versions of his memoirs.
