Jennifer Hudson is one award away from achieving EGOT status after winning her first Emmy.

The 39-year-old singer and actress has been honored with the Outstanding Interactive Media for a Daytime Program accolade for her role as an executive producer on ‘Baba Yaga’ – which means she just needs a Tony Award to join the select few who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

The “Cats” star won an Oscar for Dreamgirls in 2007, while she has two Grammys to her name.

Jennifer used Instagram to share a golden ring shaped in the word “EGO” as she admitted she’d been waiting for this day to come.

She captioned the post: “Wow God wow !!!!!!! I’ve had this ring for quite some time! For me it always represented this day, the day I would say I have an EGO! Emmy , Grammy and Oscar ! What a early bday gift ! U can’t limit God !!!! It’s only a story God could write and heights only God can top ! U will always see me try ! And I hope u will too! ”

Jennifer would join the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber, John Legend and Whoopi Goldberg in the EGOT club if she does go on to win a Tony.
