LOS ANGELES: Barack Obama is now halfway to attaining an EGOT after the former United States president won an Emmy award on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) to go with his two Grammys.

Obama won the Emmy for best narrator for his work on the Netflix documentary series "Our Great National Parks."

The five-part show, which features national parks from around the globe, is produced by Barack and Michelle Obama's production company Higher Ground.

He was the biggest name in a category full of famous nominees for the award handed out at Saturday night's Creative Arts Emmys, including basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, British broadcaster David Attenborough and Oscar-winning actor Lupita Nyong'o.

Barack Obama is the second president to have an Emmy. Dwight D. Eisenhower was given a special Emmy Award in 1956.

Barack Obama previously won Grammy Awards for his audiobook reading of two of his memoirs, "The Audacity of Hope" and "Dreams From My Father." Michelle Obama won her own Grammy for reading her audiobook in 2020.

EGOT refers to a special category of entertainers who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. To date, 17 people have done it.

The late Chadwick Boseman also won an Emmy for his voice work on Saturday. The "Black Panther" actor won for outstanding character voiceover for the Disney+ and Marvel Studios animated show "What If...?"

On the show, Boseman voiced his "Black Panther" character T'Challa in an alternate universe where he becomes Star-Lord from "Guardians of the Galaxy."

It was one of the last projects for Boseman, who died in 2020 of colon cancer at age 43.
