Obama has won two Grammy awards for reading the audiobooks of his memoirs, The Audacity of Hope and A Promised Land. Now with an Emmy, he’d only need an Oscar and a Tony to be named an Egot winner. 

Egot awardees are people who have received at least one Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony each. Currently, only 17 people have been Egot winners, including Audrey Hepburn, Andrew Lloyd Webber, John Legend, and Jennifer Hudson.
