Jennifer Hudson has joined the exclusive Hollywood EGOT club after winning a Tony Award for the hit Broadway musical "A Strange Loop."

Achieving EGOT status means she has won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award in her stellar career. Hudson is the 17th person and the second Black woman to win all four major awards.

Whoopi Goldberg was the first Black woman to win all 4 major awards in 2002. It took 20 years for another Black woman to reach that milestone.

Hudson previously won an Oscar for "Dreamgirls," 2 Grammy Awards and a Daytime Emmy for "Baba Yaga."

Other EGOT winners include Rita Moreno, Audrey Hepburn, John Legend and Alan Menken. Honorary EGOT winners are James Earl Jones, Harry Belafonte and Quincy Jones.

Rapper/actor Common is just one win away from earning EGOT status.

Hudson is also the third youngest EGOT winner, behind Robert Lopez and Legend, according to Billboard.

Hudson credited her dogs with helping her win. "I got a dog and named it Oscar, and then I won my Oscar," she told PEOPLE. "And then I got a dog and named it Grammy, and then I won my Grammy."

The 75th annual Tony Awards aired on Sunday night on CBS, and honored the top performances in theater. Academy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Ariana DeBose hosted the ceremony.
