Jennifer Hudson is a decorated artist — and she’s not afraid to show it!
On Wednesday, the “Spotlight” singer celebrated her EGOT status by sharing a photo on social media with all of her trophies.
In the photo, the star, 40, wears a baseball cap with the number 17 on it as all of her trophies are placed in front of her. Number 17 is significant for Hudson as she was recently named the 17th member to join the EGOT club.
“Countdown to my birthday! In a few days I’ll be 41, but I’ll still be 17! #EGOT #17,” she captioned the photo.
The actress won her first of four major awards, an Oscar, for her role in the 2007 film dream girls. She is a two-time Grammy winner, having won her first for her 2009 self-titled album.
The american idol alum then scored a Daytime Emmy last year, for the animated short Baba Yagawhich she co-produced and lent her voice.
Following her big win at the 75th Tony Awards, she shared an up-close look at her after-show celebration in a video posted on Instagram.
“Like I said when I won the Oscar [for Dreamgirls]look what God can do,” she said in the video, in which she waved a champagne flute to toast some of her friends. “Well, he did it again.”

Before becoming an EGOT winner, Hudson joked at PEOPLE“I should have two more dogs.”
“I had a dog and I named him Oscar, then I won my Oscar. And then I had a dog and I named him Grammy, then I won my Grammy,” he said. she stated at the time. “So I think I should have dogs and name them Emmy and Tony – and that will bring me luck, and I will win. [They’re] like my lucky charms.”
Next, Hudson will host his own daytime talk show on FOX. She announced in June that The Jennifer Hudson Show will premiere on the actress’ birthday, September 12, with Simon Cowell as his first guest.
