Obama won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Storyteller for his work on the Netflix documentary, “Our Great National Parks.”
Obama is the second US president to win an Emmy. Dwight Eisenhower received an Honorary Governor’s Award from the Television Academy while still in office in 1956.
Obama is now halfway to becoming an EGOT winner, someone who has received Emmys, Grammys, Oscars and Tony Awards. The feat was only accomplished by 17 people, including Rita Moreno and John Legend. The former president has already won two Grammys for audio versions of his memoir.
